    Maybe it is because I never really watched Will and Grace, or maybe it is because I'm not that familiar with Lavin, either way I actually enjoy this show. I've seen a few episodes of Will and Grace and I'm able to completely separate Sean Hayes' characters. This newer character is much more toned down in comparison while there are still hints of Jack I don't see it nearly as much as other people do. On an already packed Thursday night I have to sift through all the mediocrity and find a show that truly shines with humor that I can both appreciate, understand, and enjoy. To me, Sean Saves the World is my 9:00pm winner. Expand

    I love Sean save the world. I had my doubts at the beginning but the show is growing on me as well as the character of Sean's boss. The cast is funny, the situations are funny and of course Sean Hayes is hilarious. I don't care about the critics reviews, the show should stay. It's 30 minutes of relaxing, laughing and feeling good show and I love it. I was wondering why Sean Hayes didn't have his own show. I'm happy he has it now. Expand

    I love this show! Not crazy about the title, but the show concept is great, different from anything on TV. The Entire cast is amazing. Great to see Linda Lavin again. She looks amazing!! Sean is the best! Glad to see him back on TV. Can't wait for Season 2 of 'Sean Saves the World'.

    It's meaningful that a gay dad with a teen daughter can be conventional--it's a just not great comedy. [14 Oct 2013, p.44]

    It's more of a kindhearted family show--but it does need some kind of edge.

    [Sean Hayes is] the consummate pro, with impeccable comedic timing, fluid verbal and physical dexterity--a nod to Ball’s slapstick shtick--and a tendency to let others around him share in the laughs. That’s all on display in Sean Saves the World.
