By bringing together the suave, sophisticated atmosphere of a glamorous nightclub with the edginess of the hip-hop culture, DOGG AFTER DARK attempts to put a modern-day spin on a TV genre first made popular in the 1960s by celebrities like Frank Sinatra and Hugh Hefner. But Snoop's attempts at being debonair are undermined by the show's use of strong language and sexual innuendo. And he actually rejects some of the old-school Hollywood glamour by serving family made home-style food rather than champagne and caviar.

Dogg After Dark isn't particularly exciting, but it does offer the chance to see Snoop in a different light. Fans may also enjoy watching him perform in the comedy sketches, many of which are intended to poke fun at other celebrities or highlight some of today's existing racial stereotypes. But some of the content is too strong for tweens, and it's an iffy choice for young teens.
