Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that some of this generally family-friendly series' humor may not be appropriate for the very youngest viewers. Sometimes the girls seem too eager to grow up too quickly, and issues like weight gain and envy are discussed by the preteen cast members. The family arrangement is non-traditional but, in typical sitcom fashion, there's still no problem the three guys can't solve in about 30 minutes.

Sexual Content

Adult and teen characters date (and sometimes kiss), and there are a few references to a woman's "bod," but nothing too off-color.


Not applicable


"Damn" is about the extent of it.

Social Behavior

The show celebrates family relationships of all kinds. Later seasons address sometimes-tricky issues like weight gain and jealousy, but a solution is always found, and there's always a positive take-away.
