    The show's traditional approach explains its appeal as well as its limits.
  2. While watching Ozzy and Sharon was like peeking in on real-life Munsters, Run's House plays more like Full House--and feels just as dated. [14 Oct 2005, p.142]
  3. 50
    It may be too much a celebration of Rev Run's normalcy to be all that intriguing.
  4. 50
    "Run's House" doesn't offer anything new to the genre.
  5. 50
    This show may convince us the Simmonses are good people. But there's not much catchy drama in following the evolution of a teenager's party planning.
  6. Whether audiences will find the show's consumerism-as-reward message interesting enough to keep coming back is tough to predict.
  7. Reviewed by: Diane Werts
    This is pretty tedious viewing.

    I loved this show! It was 2005 meets 1985... Cosby's becomes Reality TV. It's hysterical, positive and just plain fun to watch. It's a feel good show that allowed a peek into the lives of a wealthy, grounded and loving African-American family. I'll definitely be tuning in next week. Expand
