Thank God You're Here is sure to draw improv fans of all ages, but while it's loads of fun to watch the actors work their quick-witted magic on the cast (and each other), the show is dragged down -- and unnecessarily drawn out -- by Grier's brief stabs at stand-up between scenes and Foley's cheesy feedback after every sketch. (You can definitely feel the American Idol production team's influence in that regard.)

Mild sexual innuendo and occasional questionable language might raise some parental eyebrows, but little of it is likely to be new to older tweens and young teens. Those who tune in are sure to enjoy watching these comedic icons test their skills on a whole new level.

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.
