Paddy Chavesky's satire on the TV business echoes some of the critical thinking of McLuhan.
From the critics
Frightening or Intense Scenes: Dramatic intensity may be frightening for some viewers. Overall, there is nothing exceptionally frightening in the film.
Coarse Language: The f-word is used somewhat excessively and fairly casually. There are also some milder cusses.
Sexual Content: A brief sex scene is shown between two characters; the scene is fairly non-explicit, but there is a brief yet intense orgasm conveyed during chatter about television ratings. Sex-related dialogue is used on and off throughout the film, as well.
Other: Characters smoke and drink alcohol from time to time, usually at work parties and events.
