How is it possible to have a show about stars "gone too soon" and not include Elvis Presley? One of the biggest, best and still missed by millions all over the world to this day. Unbelievable!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This lighthearted tabloid series is, simply, a TV version of People magazine. It offers quick glimpses into the lives of the celebrities, athletes, and everyday heroes and touches upon those details and pivotal moments that make them stand out.

Some celebrities are profiled more than others, but People Icons doesn't offer a lot of in-depth information overall. Nonetheless, folks who enjoy hearing about their favorite pop culture legends, or other people who may inspire them, will find something here.
