A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

Drinking, divorce, sexual encounters, tabloid stories.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Khloé is self-important.

Violence

References to guns.

Sex

Endless strong, crude sexual innuendo.

Language

"Hell," "ass," "bitch"; bleeped cursing.

Consumerism

It promotes the Kardashians and their brand; guests pitch products and services.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Endless drinking: cocktails, wine, champagne. Marijuana, drugs discussed.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Kocktails with Khloé is a talk show hosted by reality celeb Khloé Kardashian. Drinking (hence the name) is a constant activity throughout each episode, and this alone makes it a questionable option for teens. There's also lots of strong sexual innuendo (including crude references) and strong language. Marijuana use and other mature themes are brought into the conversations, though the discussions are superficial. It's another spoke in the Kardashian franchise, and celebrity guests also pitch their own products and services. Young Kardashian fans may want to tune in, but it's geared toward adults who like this sort of thing.

What's the story?

KOCKTAILS WITH KHLOÉ is a talk show hosted by none other than Khloé Kardashian. The reality star invites celebrity guests to a dinner party prepared by personal chef and former Master Chef contestant Sharone Hakman. Folks such as Kym Whitley, Snoop Dogg, Aisha Tyler, personal friends, and members of the Kardashian clan are treated to new, inspired cocktails and a bite to eat as they discuss a range of topics and get the scoop on what's going on in Khloe's life.

Is it any good?

This series attempts to move away from the traditional talk-show format by offering an hour of noisy, alcohol-driven, non-intimate conversations set in a contrived party-like atmosphere. But, like most of the Kardashian franchise, it offers little that's thoughtful or substantive while highlighting the host's narcissistic tendencies. Taking it to the next level is a range of silly party games, which mostly revolve around the guest's sexual secrets and embarrassing drunken moments.

Any attempt at introducing a genuine conversation about anything is thwarted by the endless, often crude banter. But folks might find Chef Hakman's featured cocktails interesting, the recipes for which he quickly shares at the beginning of each episode. Others may be curious about the products and services some of the guests pitch during the show. Nonetheless, it's pretty boring, and despite the upscale set and fancy drinks, nothing can hide the show's cheap attempt at keeping a Kardashian in the limelight.

  • What is the impact of showing a lot of drinking on TV and in films? Is it a problem if it only occurs among adults? Parents: What are some of the ways you can help kids understand the way alcohol is glamorized and marketed by the media?
