Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that ES.TV is a Hollywood-themed magazine show that features celebrity interviews, popular singers performing in music videos, comedians doing stand-up routines, and other entertainment-related segments. It's generally family-friendly, but sometimes includes footage from films and TV shows that, depending on the subject matter, may not be suitable for very young children. Overall, it's a promotional vehicle for entertainers and the work they are doing.
Is It Any Good?
The tabloid magazine series offers viewers a chance to catch up on the latest information about popular films, television shows, and songs and the people who make them. Excerpts of press interviews with actors like Henry Golding of Crazy Rich Asians and directors like award-winning Get Out writer and director Jordan Peele offer lots of insider tidbits that celebrity fans will enjoy. Some of these conversations can get a little long, but the inclusion of film and TV footage, music videos, and stand-up performances makes it feel both fast-paced and lively. Hollywood-obsessed tweens and teens who tune in to ES.TV will find lots to like.
