Is It Any Good?

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

Desus Nice and The Kid Mero are unique, important voices in late night television. They manage to be hilarious while also going mostly unscripted, reading headlines and then just riffing on them, creating a loose, laid-back vibe that carries over to their interviews. Desus & Mero is not built to have segments go viral, the way that, say, Jimmy Fallon or James Corden's are, and that makes for a refreshingly gimmick-free half-hour that can be messy, but also direct, topical and insightful.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
