Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that People's List, a joint effort between People magazine and ABC, is an entertainment-themed magazine show that features weekly news stories connected with celebrity news and gossip. Social media outlets such as Facebook and Snapchat are discussed, high-end labels are noted, and logos for stores such as Bloomingdale's and H&M are visible. There's some discussion of violent events at times, as well as some mild sexual references. Occasionally words such as "hell" are audible.
Is It Any Good?
From the latest social media crazes to Beyoncé's fashion choices, the mildly entertaining series offers an insiders's look into the world of celebrity and popular culture. But while it taps into the fun and glamorous people in the entertainment world, it also nods at political figures, doctors, and other individuals who are making a difference in the world.
It doesn't shy away from darker issues, including shootings and other violent events that are making news headlines. However, these stories are framed within the context of their being relevant in today's pop culture spectrum. All in all, it's a series that's meant to be more fun than it is informative.
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.
