Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Daytime Divas is a satire inspired by roundtable talk shows like The View that features endless fighting and unprofessional behavior. Women in particular are portrayed as competitive and unable to work with or support one another in their industry. There's lots of strong sexual innuendo, including crude references to body parts, simulated sex acts, and other themes. Drinking and drug use (cocaine) is visible, and addiction is a theme. Words like "ass" and "hell" are frequent.
Is It Any Good?
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.
