Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that, even though it's on network television, this adult drama's sexual content is relatively graphic and iffy even for most teens. No naked body parts are shown, but in one scene, the camera does come very close to revealing a naked man's genitalia. Things don't get much better when it comes to role modeling. One of the three main female characters decides to cheat on her husband simply because he's stopped showing interest in her sexually. Expect a fair amount of social drinking and label-related name-dropping as well.

Sexual Content

Sex isn't constant, but when it happens, it's hot and heavy. A man is shown ripping off a woman's stockings, and there's a lot of audible sighing. In another scene, the camera just barely frames out a man's naked groin.


Not applicable


For such a sexy show, it's surprisingly tame, but "ass," "damn," and "hell" are used, as are body-part references like "testicles."

Social Behavior

Although the main characters have admirable qualities, they're riddled with flaws. One in particular cheats on her husband with a younger man -- multiple times.


Occasional name-dropping takes place, including mentions of prescription drugs like Xanax and high-end brands like Armani and Fendi.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Adult characters are shown drinking socially (including at lunch) and sometimes talk about wanting a drink in times of stress. One character also mentions weed.
