So here's the good news: Ryan saves the worst of her raunchy, red-letter impressions for victims who've brought the unforgiving public spotlight on themselves, rather than for innocent bystanders. Colorful personalities from reality shows like Mob Wives and multiple Real Housewives series, former Playmates with X-rated pasts, and, of course, the Kardashian clan -- all are subject to Ryan's relentless mockery. But we all know it's easy to laugh at the expense of stars whose real personas seem almost as outrageous as people's impersonations of them. But even though there's less guilt because of who these victims are, it still raises some issues about the kinds of messages this type of entertainment sends to impressionable viewers.

And speaking of viewers, while Stevie TV clearly aims to draw in the very teens who might be entranced by sensationalist celebrity comings and goings, its content is far from age appropriate for their eyes and ears. Simulated sex (with objects rather than people, for the most part), intimate touching, references to making sex tapes, scenes of "sex messes" (a white puddle on a sheet), and near-constant innuendo leave little to the imagination. Explicit language ("f--k" is bleeped, but that's about it) and jovial references to drinking and using drugs are here, too, which send iffy messages about this kind of behavior. The bottom line? Amid Stevie TV's recycled impressions are some funny moments, especially if you're familiar with Ryan's subjects, but the content is just too risqué for most teens.
