As tween sitcoms go, viewers could do worse than this understated series that shows high school students engaged in gainful internships and learning how to produce a quality product. The characters are believable and engaging, and kids will enjoy watching their relationships -- both friendships and eventual romantic involvements -- evolve over the course of the show. Of course there also are plenty of funny antics typical to an ensemble cast in close quarters, and personality quirks that entertain as well.

Rebecca and Amanda's friendship has its moments of high drama as the two girls vie for boys' attention and compete for top honors in the press room, but ultimately they're friends who have their share of small tiffs. The bottom line? The Latest Buzz isn't flashy or edgy, but it spins a solid story around decent teen characters to whom tweens can relate.
