The family-friendly series is based on a classic segment that originated on CBS Radio in 1945 when famed radio host Art Linkletter interviewed children during his show House Party. Beginning in 1952 and running through 1969, Art Linkletter’s House Party was broadcast on CBS and included the popular panel with kids.

Later, CBS aired an update of Kids Say The Darndest Things from 1998-2000. The current version with Tiffany Haddish originally aired last season on another network.

The reimagined Kids Say The Darndest Things showcases Tiffany Haddish’s unparalleled comedy talents using her singular voice, humor, and life perspective to interact with real kids from across the country in an honest, unpredictable, and hilarious way. These kids are all unrehearsed and have no filters as they share their opinions about the world the way they see it.

“I see my role as giving kids a safe environment where they can say anything they want with complete freedom and no judgment. What I love about this show is that we let kids truly be themselves. I’m the straight man here, and that’s fine with me,” said Tiffany Haddish, host and Executive Producer.  

“Few things have more universal appeal and humor than the unfiltered honesty of a child, and the comedic genius of Tiffany Haddish takes that to the next level. It’s great to have Kids Say back on CBS and part of our expanding alternative slate for 2021,” said Mitch Graham, Senior Vice President, Alternative Programming, CBS Entertainment.
