Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this dryly satirical comedy airs with unbleeped swearing (including "f--k" and "s--t") and includes some sexual innuendo. There's also a bit of name-dropping -- both in terms of products and real-life celebrities -- and occasional social drinking that can lead to drunkenness.

Sexual Content

Sexual innuendo with occasional crass talk.


Not applicable


Unbleeped language includes "f--k" and "s--t," along with words like "ass," "damn," etc.

Social Behavior

It's not really a "message" kind of show, but there's a general sense of cynicism -- especially when it comes to Hollywood.


A few visible logos (like Coca-Cola) and some dropped brand names. Celebrities regularly guest star as fictionalized versions of themselves.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Social drinking, occasional drunkenness.
