A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
It's all about finding something nice to say about just about anything (though most of what is said is backhanded compliments).
Positive Role Models
Contestants are rewarded for their kindness and cleverness.
Violence & Scariness
No violence. Sometimes violent acts come up for discussion in the game, and receive compliments.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Nice One is a short comedy game show where contestants compete to see who can give the best compliments. Professional comedians are given prompts ranging from hairstyles to war crimes. The prompts are usually things that have a negative connotation in pop culture, and contestants compete to see who can come up with the best compliment for them. The show features some profanity, including the "F" word and "s--t," sexual innuendo, and a lot of anatomical humor.
Is It Any Good?
It's like the old saying goes: If you can't say something nice, say something funny. Nice One is essentially a joke-writing contest with arbitrary rules, but the contestants are game, and Ron Funches' charming enthusiasm carries things. The hit rate on the jokes is pretty low, and the audacity of the prompts themselves is often funnier than the contestants' responses. But, as in real life, it's hard to be mad at something all about smiles and saying nice things.
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.
