Critic Reviews

    The show is too close to a comedy routine to be successful, although future episodes may feel less practiced. But whether or not the show makes it, one thing is clear: Sherri Shepherd is a star. An original.
  2. Lifetime busts out a new sitcom Monday night, and while Sherri isn't an instant classic, it should spark more than a few "Right on, sister" responses from the Lifetime audience.

    Shepherd is the star, and she does a good job of, er, Shepherding the show and making her character very likeable and accessable. I only wish the women characters were deliberately funny, instead of being accidentally funny from being stupid.
  4. If you're looking for a smart, brain-massaging sitcom, watch NBC's Thursday night lineup. If you're just seeking a few (sometimes cheap) laughs, Sherri provides.

    So while Sherri doesn't rock any better than "Rita" does, for Lifetime, that's probably enough.

    A ridiculous attempt at mainstream sitcoms; and that's saying a mouthful when you consider the quality of mainstream sitcoms, or lack A ridiculous attempt at mainstream sitcoms; and that's saying a mouthful when you consider the quality of mainstream sitcoms, or lack thereof. Sherri Shepherd is painful to watch as she attempt to deliver sassy one-line 'zingers' in hopes of eliciting side-aching belly laughs from what the show's producers expect to be wide-eyed, adoring female viewers. It's a swing and a miss and sadly I can't even recommend a "check it out for yourself" suggestion. Full Review »
