The Comment Section
A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that The Comment Section is a weekly series that offers commentary on reactions to popular culture events and trends people post about online. There's lots of innuendo (including sexy images), strong language ("ass," "dick," "bitch"), and bleeped cursing. Facebook, Twitter, Yelp, the Huffington Post, and other online sources are featured.

What's the story?
Produced by The Soup's Joel McHale, THE COMMENT SECTION is a weekly show that offers irreverent responses to the public comments made about some of the strangest moments in that week's popular culture headlines. Hosted by Michael Kosta, it showcases blog responses, Facebook posts, tweets, Yelp posts, and texts people from across the world have chosen to share with the world. Appearances from comedians such as Whitney Rice and interviews with a wide range of B-list celebrities such as Candid Cayne add to the fray.
Is it any good?
The irreverent series pokes fun at comments about a broad range of tabloid-generating events with the help of profanity and stereotypes. But the writing isn't very clever, and despite Michael Kosta's deadpan approach, many of the jokes simply fall flat.
Thanks to the vast array of comments available to comment on, the show's overall premise could potentially work. Unfortunately, this show fails to reach that potential, and there just isn't a whole lot of funny here.
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about the reasons people post comments about things online. Who reads them? Do they make a difference to the people who are being discussed? When do people's online reactions to things go too far?
