The entertaining game show features a diverse group of college students showing off their academic skills and representing their well-known universities. Host and former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning is an awkward and serious straight man as he asks the question; meanwhile, his brother Cooper delivers humorous (but clearly preplanned) one-liners throughout. Thanks to the TV show's history being rooted in football, and the backgrounds of the hosts, there's lots of sports-related comments too. Adding to the fun are prerecorded appearances by some of the featured universities' famous alums, cheering their team on. Overall, College Bowl is a competition that's easy to get caught up in, even if you don't like school.

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.
