Common Sense Media: Best Sitcoms for Teens and Tweens

10 of 15

'The Middle'

Age: 12+ Content is age-appropriate for kids this age.

Synopsis: Funny look at average family is OK for older tweens and up.

Rating: * * * *

What Parents Should Know: Parents need to know that this sitcom draws its humor from typical middle-class family woes like tight finances, overscheduling, communication issues, and balancing work and family time. The parents are devoted to their kids and to each other but do sometimes show their stress over worries about money and other issues. Though the show’s content is fairly tame compared to much prime-time fare, young kids won’t grasp the humor, and some of the language (multiple uses of "hell" and "damn," plus name-calling like "freak" and "moron") isn’t appropriate for the littlest viewers. But older tweens, teens, and parents are likely to get a kick out of this witty, honest comedy about life’s trials. - Common Sense Media
