    "The Class" will never be smart, or clever, or original, but it does have a chance of becoming inoffensive and diverting.
  2. 40
    The crass elements of “The Class” threaten to drag the whole show down.
  3. If "The Class" feels calculated, unrelated to life outside sitcoms, and encased in amber, it's a competent American product, ultimately, no harder to watch than, say, a Dodge is to drive.
  4. The best thing to say about "The Class" is that it improves by quite a few notches as it goes along.... The worst thing to say about "The Class" is that requiring viewers to come back and try, try again is asking a lot.
  5. 50
    There's a nice idea in there somewhere. Now, if CBS and the show's producers can get together on changing most of it, they might have something.
  6. A sometimes-promising, sometimes-frustrating, always-overpopulated new sitcom that kicks off this season's odd new trend of shows about relative strangers who become best pals in a hurry.
  7. “The Class” has appealing characters and funny lines, but it has some problems. The jokes move along slowly, and at times the acting turns very broad and very loud, as if it were dinner theater.

I laughed out loud ever single episode!!! I have been waiting for it and didn't believe when someone told me it wasn't coming back. I just looked it up! TERRIBLE! It is almost like a show has to have dirty comedy for people to watch it. This show was good clean fun! :( It replaced my Will & Grace (even though that was a little dirty. Full Review »
