They are literally out of ideas

What can I say. People that posted the rating before must work for this channel to promote this garbage. Literally can't think of anything more to show anymore on TV. Kids should be in bed by this time anyway. URGH how people use their offspring for their minutes of fame.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

It's unlikely any kids out there were actually clamoring for a late-night show, but this spin-off definitely brings a silly party to the genre. In The Kids Tonight Show, hosts are polished showbiz professionals who still manage to act relatively natural and have great chemistry with each other. The show has funny physical games in the vein of '90s Nickelodeon game shows that are sure to make kids giggle. Celebrity interviews, the most boring parts of adults' late-night shows, are mercifully short. The celebrity guests will be especially interesting to kids that are tuned-in to kid pop culture (i.e., of the Disney and Nickelodeon variety). Grown-ups might wish the stars were a little less self-promotional, but otherwise The Kids Tonight Show is a fun watch for kids and tweens.

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.
