What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that while this show may not have explicit references to sex, violence, or drug use, it's almost worse than shows that do because it's so stupid. Andy Milonakis makes people feel uncomfortable. That's all that happens. Parents should also know that some kids may be inspired to copy some of the dumb pranks on display here.
What's the story?
There seems to be a revolution on MTV. Where music videos were long ago replaced by shows like The Real World and Road Rules, recently it seems like stupid shows with stupid boys pulling stupid pranks seem to be usurping the entire network. One of the revolutionaries is THE ANDY MILONAKIS SHOW's star, a 30-year-old who looks like he's about 14. His shtick is that he acts like he's 14. That's it.
Is it any good?
Sometimes Andy pulls pranks such as ordering Chinese food and then being tied up when the delivery guy shows up. The whole point of the prank is to make the delivery guy feel uncomfortable. Do people really find pranks like that funny?
The rest of the show is made up of short skits where Milonakis does something ridiculous, like opening a box with a giant Pez dispenser that dispenses chicken nuggets. Is this funny? No. Bottom line: Save a few brain cells and watch something else if you have time to kill.

Families can talk about why people find this show appealing. Is it ever funny to see people get hurt or humiliated?
