Virtual learning has evolved by leaps and bounds, and this unique series brings its own style to the niche market. As classroom instruction goes, it's fun for those who watch, as the focus is more on entertaining the audience than anything else. Even so, the stars do present some solid content in creative ways with the help of the teachers alongside them onscreen.

Celebrity Substitute shouldn't be mistaken for tutoring... or anything resembling it. These aren't lengthy and thorough journeys of academia; they're short and sweet and dabble only in the basic concepts of the topics they cover. What sells the show are the celebrities who are involved, as it's always fun to see stars outside of their normal roles on the screen.
