Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This soapy but entertaining series parodies some of the well-publicized conflicts, and behind-the-scenes secrets, that make daytime talk TV the subject of tabloid fodder. Some of it's clearly poking fun at The View. Other narratives are inspired from lesser-known events in the industry that have taken place over the years. However, while the co-hosts are portrayed as strong women throughout, they also appear as unwilling (or unable) to support each other in the difficult, patriarchal industry.

There are lots of campy and fun moments, but thanks to a lack of sharp writing, some of the humor is more silly than smart. Many of the plot lines are predictable, too. But the appearances by actresses such as Tamera Mowry and Kristen Johnston, as well as daytime celebs such as Star Jones and current View co-host Sara Haines, add some richness to it. Nonetheless, what makes Daytime Divas appealing is the idea that the over-the-top behavior it features might actually be reality.
