Bad show

This is just more self absorbed celebrities making money. I found it very crude. And not funny at all. Will not watch again.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Forced to come up with entertainment content in the absence of sports and scripted shows, TBS creatively farmed out their work to celebrities who would gladly take it. Though most of the mini-shows fail to connect, Celebrity Show-Off's format and the diversity of its content are at least enough to keep it compelling, even when the laughs aren't there. One of the mini-shows, featuring Ja Rule doing a commercial for a local Greek restaurant, went viral in the week leading up to the competition's debut. That's about the best-case scenario here: a few seconds of breakout content nestled within a five-minute homemade TV show nestled within an hour-long competition.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
