NEW YORK, May 7, 2010 – Parents know what kids do that annoys them, and they are quick to say so. But do parents know what things they say and do that annoy or embarrass their kids? The truth is revealed in Nick News with Linda Ellerbee: So NOT Cool: The Most Annoying Stuff Parents Say and Do, premiering Sunday, May 16, at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. The half-hour special features a countdown of kids’ top 10 gripes about their parents and commentary from some famous former kids, including: Tina Fey (30 Rock), Marlon Wayans (actor/comedian), Wendy Williams (The Wendy Williams Show), Brad Garrett (actor/comedian), Howie Mandel (Deal or No Deal), Jenna Elfman (Accidentally on Purpose), Aisha Tyler (Bedtime Stories), Maya Rudolph (Saturday Night Live), Fran Drescher (The Nanny) and Tracey Ullman (Tracey Ullman’s State of the Union).
“If you’re a parent, it’s probably in your self-interest to watch this show,” says Ellerbee. “And if you’re a kid, and one day become a parent, maybe you’ll remember this show. Because it is in the nature of all parents to embarrass our kids.”
To compile the countdown, kids across the country were polled about what irritates them the most about their parents. Then kids ranked their gripes online, “ten” being the least annoying.
It’s so annoying when parents…
10) …say, “Go ask your mom!” or “Go ask your dad!”
9) …obsess about things that don’t matter.
8) …say, “Because I said so, that’s why!”
7) …say, “When I was your age…”
6) …say, “When you’re older, you’ll understand.”
5) …tell old and really corny jokes to my friends.
4) …treat me like a little kid.
3) …nag me.
2) …say, “Act your age!”
And, finally, the number-one MOST annoying thing kids say parents do is when parents
…don’t act their age!!!!
In addition to kids’ stories about their parents’ quirks, So NOT Cool features Tina Fey’s claim that her family called her “Baby” until she was 29; Brad Garrett’s insistence that his parents used to tell him, “When you’re taller, you’ll understand,” and Tracey Ullman’s tales of her mother embarrassing her by dancing and singing in front of her friends.
