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

Positive Messages

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 & Representations

Contestants are rewarded for their kindness and cleverness.


No violence. Sometimes violent acts come up for discussion in the game, and receive compliments.


Sexual content includes innuendo and a lot of anatomical humor.


Moderate profanity is used throughout: the "F" word, "s--t," etc.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

It's possible that any could come up as a topic or in jokes.

What 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.

What's the story?

NICE ONE is a short game show where contestants win by complimenting things. Host Ron Funches gives the contestants prompts that are challenging to compliment for one reason or another, and the audience scores them on kindness and cleverness. 

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.
