Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that much of this show's humor derives from sexual banter and playful flirtation between a father and the provocatively clad nanny of his three kids. While none of the discourse is sexually graphic (in fact the word "sex" is almost never heard), astute tween and teen viewers won't miss the suggestive comments and glances. The show also draws comedy from the kids' various woes. Adolescent issues like dating, peer pressure, and self-image are played for laughs, but the adult influence is good, and the overall message is a positive one.

Sexual Content

Frequent but mild sexual banter between adults appears to go unnoticed by the TV kids, but tween and teen viewers will pick up on it. Teen and adult female characters (especially Fran) sometimes wear skimpy, tight outfits.


Not applicable


Exclamations like "Oh my god" are as bad as it gets.

Social Behavior

The importance of family and being a good parent is a central theme here.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Adults occasionally have a mixed drink, but it's rare, and there's never any underage drinking.
