  1. “Big Day” is marvelously cast, and the actors, especially Wendie Malick, manage, like the cast of “24,” to convey a sense of urgency that almost belongs on the stage.
  2. 60
    A lot of this is pretty funny, but for 24 episodes?
  3. The show often goes to annoying extremes.
  4. 40
    Despite its formal ambition, "Big Day" is disappointingly ordinary.
  5. 37
    The show is all structure and no substance.
  6. 25
    One of the most puzzling things about TV this year is the mere existence of this catastrophe. It is a huge, huge pile.
  7. The situations are predictable, the writing is unfunny and the cast is forced to overplay every scene in hopes of generating something resembling a chuckle.
