A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Participants compete for a high profile/highly paid event planner position, endlessly trying to tear down their competitors. There's some discussion of professionalism and a solid work ethic. But there's also a lot of focus on hedonism and the need to impress and maintain a celebrity's good/bad reputation. Women are often objectified and are treated as props at certain events. The cast is both male and female and from various walks of life.
Violence & Scariness
Lots of arguing, fighting, and yelling between contestants. Frazzled planners sometimes yell at vendors.

Words like "ass," "damn," and "bitch" are audible, while stronger curse words like "f--k" are bleeped out. Rude hand gestures are blurred.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that, like many shows of its kind, this reality series about a group of competing celebrity party planner hopefuls features lots of negative competitive behavior, including heated arguments and sabotage. Audible language includes words like "damn" and bitches," while stronger words (including "f--k") are bleeped. People on the show drink (wine, beer, hard liquor) very frequently, and women are sometimes shown dressed in string bikinis and skimpy outfits and are often invited to events to increase their appeal. The series is sponsored by LG Electronics, and the company's logo and products are clearly visible in every episode.
Is It Any Good?
The series showcases the hard work that goes into setting up over-the-top star-studded events. It doesn't hesitate to show how unglamorous event planning can really be, no matter how high profile your clients are -- just like anyone else, the rich and famous can turn on you quickly if your party fails to live up to their expectations and/or threatens their reputation.
But outside of watching contestants focus on the mundane details of putting a party together, this voyeuristic show offers little more than a chance to watch contestants argue and insult each other before, during, and after every event. (And when those scenes aren't front and center, shots of people drinking, "dirty" dancing, and engaging in other hedonistic pursuits are.) Older teens and adults may find it an entertaining guilty pleasure, but overall this show doesn't offer much to party about.
