Nothing too extreme

This show isn’t inappropriate in my sight, it’s another talk show. However, it is very enntertaining, with the guests on the show interesting, obviously they’re all comedians.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (5):

Loose-limbed and charming, this informal talk show is too, well, talky to appeal to younger viewers but a great treat for fans of funny folks. Most of the passengers are known for making you laugh, not for revealing their inner lives, and it's delightful to listen to Tina Fey explaining the gross-chore breakdown at her house (her husband handles kid vomit, she's on poop duty) or Louis CK discussing his stealth maneuver for going to 3-D movies after smoking pot. Mature teens should be able to handle the sometimes grown-up content, and it could be a fun family watch. It's well-known that Seinfeld is a super-rich guy who can do pretty much what he wants to do; it's interesting that it entails driving slowly around town having conversations with comedians -- interesting for him, interesting for us.
