A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.

Procter & Gamble's Homemadesimple.com Web site is pitched regularly.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that in each episode of this home-improvement reality series, a team of experts helps a family simplify their home lives. Friends pitch in to help, and everyone learns new ways to make their households more user friendly. It's fine fare for young viewers, though only die-hard home improvement buffs will be entertained.
Is It Any Good?
Home Made Simple has many positives: In addition to quick tips that appear from time to time at the bottom of the screen ("For the best zest, use unwaxed fruit"), devoted, caring parents and loving families are highlighted. But while the show is fine for viewers of all ages, Home Made Simple will primarily appeal to adults and older teens with the home improvement bug.
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.
