    The absurdity of an omniscient sophisticate still in short pants carries plenty of comedic potential.

    So pleased with itself, it doesn't seem concerned about pleasing us.

    I love the way Allen Gregory talks down to every adult he encounters, as if they're members of a lower species. But the world built around that core of satire is a lot less promising.

    Maybe as an animated sketch on "Saturday Night Live," Allen Gregory would leave viewers eager for more. But in half-hour form, it's too much of the same.

    Perhaps Allen Gregory's arrogance is meant to be entertaining, but I just found it mostly insufferable, despite his occasional flashes of self-awareness.

    With no other likable characters and a thin premise, Allen Gregory seems as one-dimensional as the animation.

    Allen Gregory is not funny--not even a little bit--and it is not remotely entertaining.

The show is smart, a little too smart but it is funny, has great quick-witted writing, and excellent storytelling. I think its problem was that it went over peoples heads. People didn't want it to succeed, the masses want to only see Seth MacFarlane creations and played out Simpsons humor. RIP Allen Gregory, hopefully Adult Swim picks you up and lets you grow. Expand

Whatever look the show was going for, it missed completely. Except if it was supposed to be bad. Well, they succeeded. The only reason it gets a 2 is because 1) Believe it or not, it is not "THE" worst. 2) It doesn't deserve a 0, (poor) effort was put into it. 3) I laughed once. Just once. Comedy is supposed to be funny. What the hell is this???? Expand

    I think there was one good laugh in the first episode (that's why it's getting 1 point). Second episode, I stopped it at 10 mins in. DecidedI think there was one good laugh in the first episode (that's why it's getting 1 point). Second episode, I stopped it at 10 mins in. Decided that that was the end of it. The quality of the animation is great and I like the style but it's simply not funny. If you find the idea of a 7 yr old getting all hot and bothered about a fat 60 year old dykey looking woman, then yeah maybe this is funny for you. Also, 7 yr olds acting like they're in high school has to be funny to you as well. Go watch Archer instead. That's actually funny. Expand

    Allen Gregory was truly a horrible, horrible show. Not one chuckle the entire grueling 30 minutes. Allen and his father are obnoxiousAllen Gregory was truly a horrible, horrible show. Not one chuckle the entire grueling 30 minutes. Allen and his father are obnoxious people, which makes you hope that bad things happen to them. I dont know how the writers and producers can come up with something like this, build up the hype for several months prior, and not realize what kind of pile of crap they're coming up with. Hopefully it doesnt make it through the season... Expand

The main character is an arrogant **** with a creepy fetish for his 60-something year old principal. The degree of **** that Jeremy and Julie (2 of the main family, and literally the only likeable characters in the show) put up with makes the **** Meg Griffin puts up with look like child's play. I don't know who decided to green light this show for production, but he needs to lose his job. Like, immediately. Expand
