  1. You get the feeling that if this show is given enough time to find its strengths and understand its characters, it could be around for quite some time.
  2. "In Case of Emergency" is uneven, more antic than witty.
  3. 40
    In Case of Emergency puts these characters through sadistic slapstick.
  4. It’s not well-cast.... It’s not well-written.
  5. [It] instantly displays a commitment to slapstick in direct proportion to a state of comedic denial.
  6. Reviewed by: Brian Lowry

    Somewhere trapped inside this shrill, irritating comedy is a better show that emerges only in fleeting glimpses, amid the manic tone and Catskills-comic humor.
  7. [It] may be the worst, most annoying comedy to turn up on the networks this season.
