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.

Appallingly Sexist and Heterosexist!

I can't get over how sexist and heterosexist this this show is. Steve Harvey constantly asks boy contestants (even six and seven year olds) if their talents or tricks get them lots of girlfriends (and vice versa). His schtick seems to be making inappropriate jokes that might go over young kids' heads but get a har-har laugh out of adults. It's gross. Our whole family watched the show for a while, but eventually both my daughter (at about age 10) and son (14) were so sick of Harvey's inappropriate and frankly offensive jokes, we couldn't take it anymore. I'm pretty shocked this gets a commonsense media selection award. What a misstep.

The format has changed and it's awful

So disappointing, please change host back to Steve Harvey. I thought the show was about amazing kids. It appears to be about host.
