Is It Any Good?

Wentz does an adequate job, but he's sort of a dweeb. Luckily, he knows that and uses his underdog persona to his advantage. He occasionally stumbles over his script and rushes his guests' answers, but some moments work out OK. For example, Wentz and Snoop Dogg did a mildly funny sketch in which Snoop parodied himself and advised an innocent Wentz to keep his baby's crib in the garage and feed it malt liquor to help it sleep.

Obviously, between skits like that and the generally edgy content of plenty of the videos themselves, this isn't the best pick for kids and tweens, but teens and adults might enjoy seeing a little more music in their "music television" -- as long as they can put up with Wentz.
