Lame pop-culture recap has strong language, snarky bite.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

It's no secret that The Short List relies on a formula that a lot of people like, using comedians' unfiltered snark to poke fun at celebrity culture. But that doesn't mean it stacks up to the much funnier shows that came before it, including VH1's stand-out Best Week Ever and I Love the ... series.

Maybe it's the uninspiring topics (do we really care about celebrity babies or, even worse, the famous tools that might have spawned them?) or the show's roster of obscure (and largely unfunny) comics. Either way, if you're looking for quick-fix laughs, you might not get what you came for.

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.
