    Once is quite enough to send C.S.I. back to the lab. [6 Oct 2000, p.10]

    From the creator of "L.A.Law," Picket Fences has all the oddball characters and eccentric behavior that made "L.A. Law" the hit it has been. But in this setting, they ring a false note that's more grating than ingratiating. [18 Sept 1992, p.1]

    Don't waste time trying to follow it. This convoluted camcorder e-mess is already freaked out to reboot mode behind the scenes, and the grade drops accordingly. [6 Oct 2000, p.10]

    Aside from Kurtz, everything else in this makeover is about the same. That's not good.[9 Sept 1996, p.1]

    Friends is the new "Seinfeld" wannabe, but it will never be as funny as "Seinfeld." Even as "Seinfeld" is now, which isn't as funny as it used to be.[22 Sept 1994, p.10]

    In this disappointing opener, though, the pace is more frantic than fun, and the plot about the token gay is neither clever nor funny...The one cinch about Spin City is that Fox wants a hit just as much as ABC wants one. They'll just have to try harder; you can bet they will. [17 Sept 1996, p.1]

    It's somehow not as funny or as clever as it's meant to be. It tries very hard to be sophisticated, provocative and kinky. But underneath the big city smugg-and-smirk of these junior would-be movers and shakers are some very lonely people. [6 June 1998, p.11]

    Bathroom is an apt description of the humor level and the language. [21 Sept 1998, p.1]

    Its makers must be blind to do a hype-the-hip-young-crowd sitcom about instant sex in this age of AIDS. [11 Sep 1992]

    The Family Guy is worse than dumb; it's not funny. [30 Jan 1999]

    Big Brother is that deadliest of TV sins: It's a Grade D bore. [8 Jul 2000]

    No doubt Lopez is a very funny fellow, but this script isn't. And the writers are the ones to blame, too, for all these tacky jokes about little girls entering puberty and George's digestive problems and wind-passing. The mother-of-mean-mothers gimmick is beyond mere tacky. It's gross...George Lopez is a goner - the sooner, the better. [27 Mar 2002, p.1]

    The opening production numbers are Las Vegas cheesy, Nikki's running battle with Dwight's mother is mean-spirited, and the jokes run from rank to raunch. [7 Oct 2000]

    It's just about as huge a bomb as might have been expected. [25 Sep 1992]

    Hype is the WB's unforgiveable offering of the season, a disgustingly smutty sketch non-comedy show. [7 Oct 2000]
