TLC's Cake Boss is the story of a famiglia. A famiglia that yells like all the freakin' time, and has a collective IQ of barely over 100, but they bravely forge forward and make cakes in spite of it all.
Buddy, the self-appointed Cake Boss and namesake for all other children on the show apparently, is a loud-mouthed, big-hearted buffoon who runs the family business. As Eli points out, he will yell at someone over the smallest detail, but he doesn't sweat the big stuff - all managers should look to him for how to run their businesses (aside from the hazing and the finger-cobras*, I mean).
This is a fun, light-hearted show I genuinely recommend to family audiences. Instead of watching boring "children's entertainment" with their broadly drawn characters and minimal conflict, watch this show, which has broadly drawn REAL LIFE characters and minimal actual conflict.
* finger-cobras: pinch the tips of all your fingers together. That's his head. Now make him face you. Wave him around in the air. Finger-cobra.
