  1. 0
    It is both bad and offensive in its depiction of some of the workers at a small hotel.
  2. 20
    Do Not Disturb is a sitcom that bombards you with a whole mess of loud, stupid, obvious, politically incorrect material, hoping it will make you forget about the pervasive pointlessness.
  3. Reviewed by: Misha Davenport
    Its characters annoy more than entertain, its boutique hotel setting is uninspired and its comedy just isn't funny. An early checkout from the fall season is all but guaranteed.
  4. 10
    A program so bad that it's not only unpleasant to watch, but it makes you fear for the future of network television.
  5. While there's nothing particularly wrong with Do Not Disturb, neither is there anything so inspired as to make you leap to your feet, crying, "Yes! This is what television needs! More workplace comedies! More hotels!"
  6. 30
    Do Not Disturb is apparently trying for an upstairs/downstairs feel, but it comes across more as above-the-waist/below-the-waist.
  7. It should be funny, which the new Fox workplace comedy Do Not Disturb is not.
  8. 25
    This series is a disturbingly unfunny bit of fluff that nonetheless manages to hit you over the head with its heavy, leaden jokes.

    Why, then, this debacle, with bad jokes, listless lines and a parade of cliches? Beats me.
  10. Nash is a force of nature, O'Connell a genial actor in search of something more interesting to do than leering. Together, they might want to think of checking out of Do Not Disturb.
  11. A disapointing and largely laughless comedy set in an upscale New York City hotel.... Do Not Disturb? Try, Do Not Watch.
  12. A series so bad that it's daring you to watch. Don't.
  13. This is a show that could bury the [sitcom] genre altogether.
  14. 37
    The result is a show that tries to be adult and titillating but just comes across as juvenile and badly paced, as if the cast were waiting for laughs they must realize won't be arriving.
  15. Reviewed by: Brian Lowry
    Broad isn't automatically bad, of course, but broad and woefully unfunny are a pretty deadly combination.
  16. 30
    Instead of opting for the trite title, Higginbotham should have looked harder for something more novel. He could have found one suitable title right there in his own dialogue: We're thinking, of course, of "Don't Let This Happen to You."
