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 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.
