Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this animated comedy from the creator of the cult hit Family Guy relies on sexual humor, fantasy violence, strong language, and general absurdity to get laughs. Many of the jokes come at the expense of the show's lead character, a right-wing conservative C.I.A. agent who's emotionally disconnected from his family and his work. Drinking, smoking, drug use, domestic violence, the socioeconomic divide, racial inequality -- all are fair game for the humor pool in this parody of modern American life. Needless to say, little about this series attempts to reflect reality, but adults will get some knowing chuckles over the way the show thumbs its figurative nose at the state of American politics and the economy, as well as the inner workings of a family of vastly different personalities.

Sexual Content

Frequent raunchy humor, including lewd references to breasts and other body parts. Characters (especially Stan) are shown taking off their pants, in their underwear, and having sex under the covers. Condoms are also discussed, there are references to "getting boob," masturbation, and boners. Women often wear cleavage-revealing clothes.


Lots of fantasy violence (people being punched and hit with bats, bloody gunshot wounds, a man is hit by a car and limps away with severe bleeding and a broken leg, etc.). Stan carries a gun and often pulls it out to threaten people (including his teenage kids).


"Damn," "hell," "bitch," "ass," and "slut," are frequent. Stronger language like "s--t" and "f--k" is bleeped.

Social Behavior

The show spoofs the traditional American family by pushing the envelope with edgy humor. It pokes fun at issues like racial equality and political activism. Gender roles within the home are very traditional, with the wife tending to the house and the husband earning the paycheck. The show makes no attempt to reflect reality.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters, including teenagers, are shown drinking beer and shots, and sometimes throwing up from it. Roger the Alien likes to drink excessively. Cigarette and marijuana smoking is sometimes visible, and drug use like huffing fumes is part of some stories.
