The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Cyrus vs. Cyrus is a design and renovation show starring Tish and Brandi Cyrus, the mother and sister of more famous singer/actress Miley Cyrus. There’s some occasional strong language and mild disagreements, but the overall show underscores positive family dynamics and team work. Some branded design services are featured, and occasionally popular songs are referenced. It probably won’t appeal to young kids, and those looking for extensive appearances of the pop singer will be disappointed.
What's the story?
CYRUS VS. CYRUS: DESIGN AND CONQUER is an interior design show starring Tish Cyrus and her oldest daughter Brandi. The two women, best known for being singer Miley Cyrus’ mom and sister, enjoy spending time outside of the music and entertainment world renovating and redecorating rooms for friends, family, and word-of-mouth clients. However, they each have very different design tastes, so they must pitch their individual design ideas to the homeowners and let them choose the direction they want to go. Once they decide, the two women work together to make it happen.
Is it any good?
This lighthearted series features Tish and Brandi Cyrus, who are not professional interior designers, pitching their designs and working together to please their clients. However, much of the show is focused on the easy going, positive relationship between the two women, which leads to harmless pranks and warmhearted moments. Appearances by Miley Cyrus, as well as the family patriarch, country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, adds to the family dynamic.
Outside of highlighting a few key design features or mishaps, the renovation discussions are limited in scope and detail. But what Cyrus vs. Cyrus also lacks is over-the-top drama. The series is pleasant enough but you can’t help but feel that these decorators have a show thanks to their musical connections, rather than their renovation accomplishments.
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about the reasons people get their own reality show. Why do you think Trish and Brandi have their own design show if they aren’t professional designers? Would they have a show like if it weren’t for the famous singers in their immediate family?
Is Cyrus vs. Cyrus a design show? Or is it a reality show featuring people who just happen to design for fun? What’s the difference?
