    Where "Party" goes awry is by trying to be an hour. That's twice as long as it should be. There's more fat in it than a Popeye's biscuit.

    It is overlong, contrived and utterly out of place on UPN. It plays like something left over that the network needs to discard before going out of business.
  3. Something feels wrong about a TV "reality show" team swooping into the hotel where a displaced Hurricane Katrina family has been living since September and carting two girls out to Las Vegas for a fancy birthday party.
  4. The lavishing [of gifts] never abates, until what you're witnessing feels less like a party than an icky display of instant wealth meant to leave the rest of us drooling, wondering what about our own lives might get us on a TV show.

    In television terms, a program like this can be produced for pocket change, which explains, at least partly, its presence on the UPN schedule.

    [It] leads the league in overreactions and on-cue hugs, making it seem just too phony to have any real impact.
  7. I guess this is supposed to be another "feel-good" reality show, but it comes off more like an exercise in wretched excess.
  8. 10
    A do-good reality show that makes a big deal about how morally superior it is.

    UPN's new series has a shot -- in the sweepstakes for the worst reality show of all time.
