Content rating

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A content rating (also known as maturity rating)[1][2] rates the suitability of TV shows, movies, comic books, or video games to this primary targeted audience.[3][4][5] A content rating usually places a media source into one of a number of different categories, to show which age group is suitable to view media and entertainment. The individual categories include the stated age groups within the category, along with all ages greater than the ages of that category.
