Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Jim Gaffigan Show is loosely based on the real-life family of its star, comedian Jim Gaffigan, focusing on the highs and lows of marriage, fatherhood, and raising five kids in a small New York City apartment. You'll hear words such as "ass," "whore," and "bitch," along with light sexual innuendo and body-part humor (featuring words such as "penis" and "vagina"). You'll also see some physical comedy (pushing, fighting) and social drinking.
