The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Deliciousness is a series that showcases food-themed internet videos and minor celebrities sharing their thought about them. Some videos feature cute moments, but most show plates breaking, food getting thrown, arguments breaking out, drinking, and drunken behavior. There’s some innuendo and crude references, and some videos feature people dancing suggestively or showing their underwear. Strong language includes "damn" and "ass," though stronger curses are fully bleeped. Viewers of all ages are reminded to not try any of what they see at home.

What's the story?
DELICIOUSNESS is a reality series that celebrates the funniest food moments on the internet. Host Tiffani Thiessen showcases a wide-range of videos that feature cooking mishaps, meal time disasters, and other food fails that have gone viral. Throughout it all, a panel of commentators, including Angela Kinsey, Kel Mitchell, and Tim Chantarangsu, share their thoughts about what they are watching.
Is it any good?
The predictable TV show, which takes after its brother series, Ridiculousness, offers viewers a chance to watch some of the food-themed videos available on the internet. From people dropping and breaking dishes filled with mouth-watering home-cooked fare, to folks twerking and eating at the same time, each of the show’s 30-minute episodes gives viewers a chance to witness some humorous, if not disturbing, moments involving edible material.
Deliciousness is meant to be silly, and Tiffani Thiessen, along with her panel of foodie friends, offer some quick-witted banter and comical moments. But like most TV shows of this type, the bigger the disaster, the bigger the thrill. As a result, there are videos that feature potentially dangerous (and painful) situations. Those who have a taste for this kind of entertainment might find it worth watching, but if internet videos or food-related humor isn’t on your menu, you’ll probably want to pass.
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about the appeal of internet video shows. Why do people want to watch these videos on television if they can stream them online? Does having people comment on them make them more fun to watch?
What do you think about the videos featured on Deliciousness? Are they funny? Disturbing? Just plain weird? Do you think the people featured in them ever thought they would end up on television?
Watching videos on YouTube and other internet sites can be fun, but there’s lots of online content that’s violent, problematic, or just not for kids (and even adults) to watch. How can we make the experience healthier and more fun for the whole family?
