Finally a reality show a family can watch!

This is such a cute show! Melissa and Tye are both very likeable and FUNNY. They both seem very down to earth. A lot of funny scenes in the premiere ep that are relatable. Their daughter is an absolute doll. I would give this a try if you're looking for a cute reality show that can be watched by the whole family and isn't full of trainwreck drama.

Is It Any Good?

Melissa & Tye highlights the challenges that married couples often face when trying to build a life and family together while also building their individual careers. The show highlights the importance of having a supportive family when trying to overcome daily challenges. Thanks to their down-to-earth personalities, both Melissa and Tye are pretty likable, too.

It's pretty tame by reality show standards, but occasional scenes featuring folks in their underwear and actors playing some steamy scenes make for some iffy moments. But the messages are largely positive, and folks looking for some mild voyeuristic entertainment will probably like what they see here.
