    "Suburgatory" falls flat--a flatness that will be accentuated by the smart suburban comedies that bookend it.

    Lacks the hard, uncomfortable edges of [FX's also premiering] "Starved," but it's clear this show wants and intends to do a little damage, too. [4 Aug 2005]

    Even for sitcoms, "Sunny" is often a vile, twisted beast that crosses the line of acceptable taste. But it can also be highly amusing, and the addition of DeVito and Archer does nothing to diminish that. [29 Jun 2006]

    Problem here is that Beers is yoking his specialty with something that is not his forte--reality competition. The result often feels forced and frivolous.

    Hilarious implausibility, overheated dialogue and enough soap to do several loads of laundry are part of its appeal.

    Get beyond that preposterous premise outlined above, and you've got a solid piece of prime-time entertainment. This show knows what it is, and knows exactly what the core audience expects.

    A relentlessly grim and deeply depressing viewing experience.

    Target is pure, utter, ridiculous, over-the-top-into-the-ravine entertainment.

    Community can be fresh, funny, smart and extremely aware of its own cleverness; it also can be terrifically odd--odd good, or odd bad, or sometimes odd-good-bad-strange all at once.

    The cast has major potential, but Life Unexpected still needs to find an original and compelling voice.

    [An] entertaining, engaging start.
