College Hill Worse Show Ever

College Hill Makes me want to vomit every time I see It. This show is completely pathetic, I don't think it could get any more trifling than it already is. I hate to see my brothers and sisters acting like fools, real live fools, lick wipe cream off each other, that's just how they want us to act. Here's the kicker, it's on B.E.T, can you believe it. I bet Imus loves the show, but what would martin luther king think about it. Half the time it looks like a t-pain video, the least they could do is change the name this garbage is hiding behind because it has nothing to do with college. Were no better than bush or jim crow, the way we sold out our own kids who watch this crap, and we wonder why they can't even graduate high school. They should change the name to katrina hill, because it just a flood of Ignornace.

Is It Any Good?

There's a reason why reality TV has become such a phenomenon: It's titillating and just raw enough to keep viewers coming back for more. College Hill is no exception. The characters' strong personalities make for an engrossing half-hour in which themes endemic to the African-American college experience are explored (that alone raises it above the pointless chaos of The Real World). Still, the subject matter and potty talk in each episode definitely isn't fare for younger teens.

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.
