A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

Grace and her guests are fun but there's not much depth behind their chats. 

Positive Role Models & Representations

Celebs and YouTube stars often guest, some of whom are entrepreneurs and community-builders. 


Internet videos feature people tripping, falling, and crashing; on one seems to get hurt. 


Contains some sexual innuendo; crude references to body parts. 


Words such as "hell," "tits";  "s--t," "f--k" bleeped. 

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Shots consumed; lots of references to getting drunk. 

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that The Grace Helbig Show is a TV adaptation of a popular YouTube channel featuring Helbig and fellow YouTube stars -- it's basically a talk show with some interactive social media features. It has some strong language (curses bleeped), sexual innuendo, crude references, and drinking. There's lots of teen appeal with the focus on social media and chats about pop culture trends, but it's a little much for younger viewers.

Is it any good?
