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.

Inspiring couple shows hard work, results with great family values.

It's disheartening to see Common Sense belittle traditional family values with low ratings while some real garbage shows get better scores. This show is great and the couple, Chip and Joanna, have alot of heart and tackle REAL challenges as they run their multi tiered business with hard work, honesty and good old family values as their kids watch and often participate in the day to day. THAT is what sets this show apart from other "home improvement" shows and also what makes it successful and worth watching aside from just the mere "projects" taking place. This is something you can watch without hesitation with anyone in the family, and how often do you get to say that?

Chip Childish

I love Joanna Gaines but Chip Gaines is so immature that it’s hard for me to watch the show he acts more like a little bratty kid then an adult. His actions are so childish and he thinks he’s funny
