Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this sitcom revolves around issues related to politics and the media. But it's also a workplace comedy, and the mayor's staffers trade plenty of zingers and innuendo-laden comments (some of which may go over the head of young viewers, but still). One character in particular, Stuart, frequently makes sexist remarks. The show features an openly gay character, and there are occasional references to gay stereotypes. Most of the characters are single and have active dating lives, so there's plenty of relationship humor, too.
Frequent sexual innuendo. Some making out, but no simulated sex acts (though many are implied, none are shown). Lots of casual (and some serious) romantic relationships between the characters. Characters shown in bed together (clothed).
Relatively mild, such as "damn."
Good example of professional and political loyalty; highlights strong friendships among a professional group. Also acknowledges homosexuality in the political spectrum. But the show also contains frequent sexist references as well as occasional references to homosexual stereotypes.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Occasional adult consumption of alcohol, including beer, wine, and hard liquor. Adult use of tobacco products, such as cigar smoking and cigarettes, is sometimes visible.
