Some confusing definitions with 'older children' being very young and adult content being suitable for children above 17 years old


Link Here 22nd June 2012

US TV Ratings TV ratings are provided by the TV companies themselves. The FCC is the ultimate TV censor but this group does not organise the TV ratings system. It just steps in when the nutters and moralists complain loudly enough.

Audience Labels:

  • TV-Y : All Children

    This program is designed to be appropriate for all children. Whether animated or live-action, the themes and elements in this program are specifically designed for a very young audience, including children from ages 2-6. This program is not expected to frighten younger children.
     
  • TV-Y7 Directed to Older Children

    This program is designed for children age 7 and above. It may be more appropriate for children who have acquired the developmental skills needed to distinguish between make-believe and reality. Themes and elements in this program may include mild fantasy violence or comedic violence, or may frighten children under the age of 7. Therefore, parents may wish to consider the suitability of this program for their very young children.
     
  • TV-Y7-FV Directed to Older Children

    Fantasy Violence For those programs where fantasy violence may be more intense or more combative than other programs in this category, such programs will be designated TV-Y7-FV.
     
  • TV-G General Audience
