Great!

Great! I would give it 5 stars but it seems to have too many advertisements, not enough news. Still love it. Great for all ages!

What's it about?

Long-running entertainment site TOMMY2.NET features daily updates on tween favorites like Demi Lovato and American Idol, including news, photos, and interviews. Although the site's main focus is music, there's some coverage of television and film. Visitors will find lots of "industry" info, like who topped the Billboard charts this week or what Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience grossed at the box office. What they won't find is gossip about stars' personal lives.

Is it any good?

Tweens looking for a daily entertainment fix won't be disappointed, and the site deserves credit for keeping its celeb coverage out of TMZ territory. The audio interviews are professional and well-produced, but most of the videos are pretty old. Although tweens probably won't be fazed by all the ads, parents may not appreciate the omnipresent iTunes promotions.
