  1. Stylized, soapy, silly, it's one of the most interesting shows this fall. [12 Oct 2007, p.64]
  2. 80
    Dirty Sexy is right on the money.
  3. 80
    The excellent cast keeps drawing you back--especially Donald Sutherland as family patriarch Tripp Darling, whose evil glint makes even as benign a phrase as ''good morning'' sound like ''I'm going to put an ice pick through your eye.'' Even better is Krause's portrayal of Nick, layers of exasperation upon fascination upon temptation.
  4. 75
    Everybody's having too much fun--and that will include the viewers.
  5. Dirty Sexy Money so far lacks either Aaron Sorkin’s Gatling-gun wit or Alan Ball’s mordant mortuary humor.... That’s the bad news. The good news about Dirty Sexy Money is that we sorely require a show of its sort.
  6. Reviewed by: Brian Lowry

    Yet despite an unusually high-octane (and yes, reasonably sexy) cast ably led by "Six Feet Under's" Peter Krause, the pilot doesn’t quite gel--feeling too determined to be quirky and provocative, and baited with a mystery that lacks the allure of the suicide that set "Housewives" in motion.
  7. Dirty Sexy Money, ABC's dull new drama starring Peter Krause ("Six Feet Under") and Donald Sutherland, contrives for your viewing displeasure one of the world's stupidest, richest and hate-worthy families called the Darlings.

    The worst script ever seen on TV! The characters couldn't be any duller or dumber
