To merit the issuance of an SPG rating, the gravity of the TV show’s material must, in the judgment of the MTRCB, be leaning towards the maximum allowable for Parental Guidance rating.

SPG rated shows will also be categorized into several content descriptors such as T for Theme, V for Violence, D for Drugs, L for Language, S for Sex, and H for Horror.

Example of shows that may get an SPG rating are UFC and Gossip Girl.
