    This feels like the kind of show ABC used to churn out in its sleep.

    There's a sort of comfort that comes from knowing you won't run into anything disruptively unconventional in a sitcom, and that would make Engvall as pleasantly lumpy as a dying couch.
  3. The show isn't particularly funny.
  4. You know a show needs work when its show-stopper is the mime.
  5. There is a sense throughout that Mr. Engvall is betraying his core audience, and the whole blue-collar comedy ethos in particular, trading in one category of cliché for another.

    This is decidedly slim and rarely funny fare.
  7. 30
    The wacky situations and jokes on The Bill Engvall Show seem almost willfully dated.

    This is one of a few sitcoms I have seen that have managed to make me angry that anyone would think I would find the show the least bit funny or enjoyable in any way. Are these people even trying? Full Review »
