It's like "60 Minutes" but for kids

This show is very refreshing, it doesn't cover current events like a daily news show but it is like a "60 Minutes" for kids. The reporters are all kids. They report on a wide range of topics and usually have a "Hot" topic and then sports, entertainment, helping others, health etc. Things like how to combat bullying or what is dragon racing or how a baseball bat is made or what it's like to be a kid in a Broadway show, or what it's like to be a kid whose sibling has autism. It's fast paced and informative with generally upbeat reports. I'm an adult but I admit I enjoy watching the show!

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1 ):

Parents may be left bleary-eyed, but teens love the fast pace -- and it keeps their attention. Parents of sensitive or younger teens may need to keep an eye peeled for content that could be too much for them, but otherwise this is a lively show that gives teens something substantial to chew on. It's a great fit for kids who have outgrown Nick News but aren't quite ready for The Daily Show.

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.
