Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this show portrays the inner workings of a family business -- but the family isn't exactly squeaky clean. Family members who work together tend to communicate in raised voices, which often escalates to flat-out yelling and bleeped language -- and sometimes results in physical outbursts involving slamming, etc. Because it's filmed inside the bakery and centers on the bake shop's outspoken owner, the show also serves as a not-so-subtle commercial for the business.
Nothing physical, but there's plenty of yelling between Buddy and his extended family. On at least one occasion, a bakery employee express his feelings by slamming huge bags of sugar down on the counter, causing them to burst open.
Buddy uses "freakin'" and "friggin'" a lot, as well as descriptive phrases like "go scratch" and "break my balls." You'll also hear words like "hell," "bitch," and "damn," as well as some bleeped language when arguments get heated.
The show promotes hard work and teamwork, but the family members/co-workers don't always treat each other with respect.
The show is filmed inside Carlo's City Hall Bake Shop in Hoboken, N.J., and directly promotes the business.
