TV Ratings for Busy Parents
What are those kids watching, anyway?
“TV-G” and “TV-Y” are for Your Youngest KidS. Shows recommended for children (or all ages) are rated as follows: TV-Y = Programming created specifically for young children, usually ages 2 to 6. A show with this rating won’t include any Content Descriptors; TV-Y7 = Programming typically aimed at children ages 7 or older. May include fantasy violence (FV) or slapstick-style violence that could be scary for younger children; TV-G = Comparable to the “G” rating for movies, this indicates programming with very little, or none, of the five Content Descriptors. Although not specifically for children, most parents would find these shows acceptable viewing for their kids.
