Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Bubbly hosts Alexandria and Manno try really hard to sell the idea that they're telling you seven things you "need to know" -- and we know, because they repeat that phrase word for word at least three times in the show's short 30-minute run. But when you strip away the live audience's cheers and screams, what you're really getting are seven pop-culture tidbits that are mildly interesting at best.

For example? Talking to Justin Timberlake, Jesse Eisenberg, and Andrew Garfield -- the stars of the Facebook-themed movie The Social Network -- about the making of the film a few days before its theatrical release is a pretty good get and comparatively worthy of its No. 1 slot as the most important news of the day. But is the fact that Twilight star Taylor Lautner used to be good at karate when he was 9 really the second-most critical thing we need to know? If so, that's kind of sad.

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.
