Why It Rocks
- One of Nickelodeon‘s best shows, focusing on the African-American, alongside with Kenan & Kel, Taina and Romeo!
- The acting is good.
- Awesome intro.
- Some likable characters, such as Jordan, Tony, Joaquin, Tangie, Pamela and Grant.
- It teaches some good morals.
- Some funny moments here and there, like Jordan says FREEZE! as a running gag.

Just Jordan generally received mixed-to-positive reviews upon release. It currently holds a 6.1/10 on IMDb and a 93% on Google.
- This series continued to be aired on Nickelodeon, until August 23, 2008 and it was also aired on The N (now as TeenNick) from January 16, 2007 to December 26, 2008. On October 16, 2016, the series was aired on MTV2, only for 6 episodes.
- Lil' JJ also guest stared in shows such as Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide and Romeo!.
- As of 2019, Nickelodeon (along with TeenNick/NickRewind) began to posted videos or images for the series on social media.
- The series is by far the mistreated Nickcom to ever air on the main network in history. Not only did the series suffer from a lack of advertising and being constantly pre-empted by other shows, but reruns were almost nonexistent. The network dropped the show a year later and reruns were dumped on The N, BET, and short-lived run on MTV2. Therefore, the series is considered the most obscure and hardest to find Nickcom.
- The series isn't available on Paramount+.
