A Lot or a Little?

Positive Role Models
Ross Mathews is a caricature of a gay man -- with lots of prancing and squeals -- which some viewers might find charming and others will find grating.
Sex, Romance & Nudity
Sex and sexual relationships are common discussion topics, as are people's virginity and sexual activity. Crude references are used to describe genitals and sexual acts. Ross sometimes playfully tongue-kisses a guest.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Hello Ross! is a late-night talk show full of edgy content, including salty vocab ("pissed," "bitch," and bleeped curses) and lots of talk about sex and sexual acts that incorporate some crude comments. As with all talk shows, it's also a promotional vehicle for celebs' books, music, films, and other products. Teens might be drawn to the host's personality and its celebrity culture themed-conversations, but it's a bit too edgy for the younger crowd.
Is It Any Good?
Hello Ross!, which is executive-produced by comedian Chelsea Handler, offers a lighthearted look at whatever entertainment stories and trends are popular at the moment. Adding to the fray are appearances by folks such as Jerry Springer, as well as controversial reality celebs such as Real Housewives star Brandi Glanville.
Ross' trademark lighthearted and flamboyant personality make the show edgier than its network late-night counterparts. Some of the issues discussed during interviews also touch on mature subjects. But if you're interested in getting the latest scoop of Hollywood craziness, there's no doubt you'll find it here.
