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.
What's the story?
HELLO ROSS! is a late-night talk show that highlights the latest and greatest antics of today's media celebs. Hosted by former The Tonight Show intern-turned-television personality Ross Mathews, the popular culture-themed show highlights the juicy details surrounding the lives of actors, singers, reality-show cast members, and other folks currently in the limelight. From gossipy conversations with celebrity guests such as Gwyneth Paltrow and pop-culture experts to prerecorded comedy stunts with folks on the streets, Ross offers an upbeat chance to keep up with the entertainment world.
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.
