A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Depending on the subject, kids might know more than adults.
Positive Role Models
Both hosts are lighthearted, polite, humorous. The kids are from all walks of life.
Products & Purchases
Lots of references to popular music, board games, books, etc., ranging from Justin Bieber to Yahtzee.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Child Support is a family-friendly game show featuring adults and kids answering youth-oriented pop culture questions. There are lots of references to singers like Justin Bieber, games like Yahtzee, nursery rhymes, and other stuff that many kids will be familiar with (and that may motivate kids to play along).
Is It Any Good?
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.
