Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this sitcom about two very different (but still close) single adult brothers tends to revolve around topics like dating -- which often leads to sexual references. Although the show puts a strong emphasis on family relationships, it also has its fair share of gender, racial, and ethnic stereotypes. While some of these stereotypes are obvious, others may go over the head of younger viewers -- as will many of the innuendos.

Sexual Content

Frequent innuendo and references to sexual activity, but much will go over the head of younger viewers. Occasional swatting of women's backsides and requests for women to "shake it"; these actions are usually well received. The brothers have active dating lives.


Mild pushing and shoving between the brothers, including arm wrestling. As part of the humor, fake body parts are sometimes ripped off.


Audible language includes "ass," "hell," and "damn."

Social Behavior

Though the show clearly puts a strong emphasis on the importance of family, it also has some strong racial, ethnic, and gender stereotypes (although many of the references will likely go over younger viewers' head).


Hip-hop artists and their music are often featured on the show, including Busta Rhymes, Ol' Dirty Bastard, and A Tribe Called Quest.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some social drinking/alcohol consumption.
