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.

Huge family laughs together; Use your judgment on the episodes

This is a show originally made for adults though turns out to be more kid-friendly than you might think. My 8-yr old’s epic and deep laughter at each dessert fail is wonderful evidence of that. The show has brought so much levity and laughter during Covid. The pearl clutching reviews below do seem over reactive and indeed potentially racist. The host is a confident smart heavyset Black woman and funny professional comedian - I’m thrilled my daughter gets to see this representation (which to her is not representation it’s just a really funny confident smart woman). There are intermittent jokes that are for sure more adult focused, but frankly my 8-yr old missed them and I didn’t call attention to them. Parents should remember the show was not made with kids in mind so screen episode descriptions at least (Dont watch an episode named Sexy - Duh!). Use common sense. Watch the episodes that look appropriate. Enjoy the mess and laughs.

"Nailed It" nails it!

I think this show is a great laid back cooking show. Chef Jacques gives val uable information. I enjoy this show. Very entertaining. Nicole Byer is a very funny host.
