Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that while the central message of this weight loss-oriented reality competition is positive for all ages, the show is targeting adults and older teens, not kids. (Need a clue that it's not meant for young children? Note the word "ass" in the title.) Expect to hear some slang words for body parts -- including "junk" and "booty" -- and see a few brand-name food and drink items. Costumes tend toward the revealing, too, occasionally baring midriffs or buttocks.

Sexual Content

Occasional references to body parts (particularly buttocks and breasts) in relationship to sexual attractiveness. Somewhat revealing costumes.


Not applicable


The title of the show contains the word "ass," but other curse words are rare. Some refer to having "junk in the trunk," "thunder thighs," a sizable "booty," etc.

Social Behavior

Although the show's emphasis is on weight loss, it encourages the dancers to get healthy rather than super skinny. To drive the point home, the contestants are teamed up with a doctor, a nutritionist, and a physical trainer in addition to their dance partner. On the downside, some of the producers' choices seem designed to elicit viewer laughs -- like dressing some of the contestants in unflattering costumes.


The dancers' "cheat" pantry includes a few brand-name snacks like Doritos.
