Family gameshow

My kids and I love this game show. We love trivia games and this is one we get to watch/play together. And growing up in the 80s I love Fred Savage as the host. He still looks the same! I recommend for all families.

Family fun

This show was a good watch as a family. My children knew several of the answers which is rare on a game show. That made them feel more involved and excited. Fun to hear what the children on the show answer.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This entertaining competition is a basic question-and-answer contest driven by the charm of precocious kids. The competition is paced slowly enough to allow the prerecorded conversations between Ricky Gervais and the children to be showcased, regardless of the players' answers.

The kids are fun, and the overall humor is clean. The banter between Fred Savage and contestants, some of whom are quite colorful, is also lighthearted. As a result, Child Support is family-friendly, and kids of all ages who like game shows and pop culture will enjoy it.

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.
