Chris Rock does not want his kids Keeping Up With the Kardashians. The comedian updated Us Weekly about his girls' television-watching habits this past weekend at the premiere of his new movie, Top Five, at the Toronto International Film Festival.

"My kids are watching reality TV now," Rock, 49, said of his daughters Lola, 12, and Zahra, 10.

In fact, it was his girls' preference for certain reality shows that led Rock to tackle his next project. "My kids are obsessed with Dance Moms, and also the Kardashians," Rock said. "But I'm trying to stop them from doing too much of that. That's what got me interested in reality."

Rock wrote and directed his new comedy movie, Top Five. In the flick, he plays a comic named Andre Allen who is reinventing himself as a serious star. Meanwhile, he and his fiancee (Gabrielle Union) plan on broadcasting their upcoming wedding as part of a reality TV show special.

The plot in Rock's film mimics certain reality stars' decisions to broadcast their weddings. Back in 2011, Kim Kardashian famously aired her "Fairytale" wedding special to Kris Humphries on E!

"I'm pushing them to watch less Kardashians," Rock told Us of his kids. Asked whether he believed his daughters needed other role models, Rock responded: "Well, reality TV in general is just pretty nuts, and watching what these people go through…."

Keeping Up With the Kardashians first aired on the E! network in October 2007. The reality show, which features Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, and Rob Kardashian, family matriarch Kris Jenner and her husband Bruce Jenner, and their two daughters Kendall and Kylie Jenner, has made the Kardashian-Jenner brood the most-famous reality television family in America.
