  1. The larger problem may be whether there's enough material to cover an entire season.
  2. 60
    A lot of this is pretty funny, but for 24 episodes?

    A harmless and mostly fun little sitcom.
  4. "Big Day" doesn't feel like a big hit, but it is intermittently amusing.
  5. 50
    "Big Day" just doesn't deliver many big laughs.
  6. Whether you'll want to go the distance with "Big Day" will probably rest on how close you feel to the family.
  7. The show often goes to annoying extremes.
  8. 40
    Too often, “Big Day” evokes the unpleasantness of pre-wedding stress, without mining the nuptial process for creative, original laughs.
  9. 40
    Big Day is forced and tiring, although Wendie Malick is a delirious hoot as the bride's pushy mom.
  10. 40
    Despite its formal ambition, "Big Day" is disappointingly ordinary.

It different and very clevery, something that is drastically missing from television these days. If ABC cancels this show, its a disgrace. Give it time. None of my family or friends have even heard of it. Full Review »

    Awesome! Hilarius. Hope they air the final episode or release it on DVD. Another season would be great too.
