The series, which is filmed in Atlanta, Georgia, sets itself apart from other late-night talk shows by featuring culturally specific humor intended to appeal to African-American audiences. While it features popular figures like Steve Harvey and Ludacris, the show also goes out of its way to introduce audiences to up-and-coming talent. It also places great importance on the contributions guests have made to the overall community.

Much of the show's positive energy comes from the Oscar award-winning host (for her role in Precious), who uses the show as an overall platform to celebrate African-American culture. The fact that she is one of the few females (African-American or otherwise) to successfully host a late night talk show also makes her stand out. Overall, the show is a positive contribution to television's late-night lineup.

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.
