  1. The best sitcom this year, and one of the best in a lot of years.
  2. Cute but not cloying, funny but not overflowing with gratuitous sex jokes, "The Class" earns a B+, which easily puts it in contention for valedictorian among fall 2006's freshman comedies.

    "The Class" is a good example of how any premise can be turned into good fiction, even if it's cluttered with tired cliches.

    Watch the first few minutes of "The Class" in its CBS sitcom debut tonight, and you may not believe me when I say this, but here goes. I think they might have something here.

    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. 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.
  7. 10
    "The Class" has very little. Considerably worse than being classless, however, is being laughless, at least if you happen to be a sitcom, and "The Class" does, albeit one that's about as rib-tickling as a migraine.

I would recommend watching last seasons episodes if you have time... they are all on the CBS website and you can watch the whole season online! You will not be disappointed in this show. Expand

I think the writing is very clever, and the cliffhangers are brilliant. I don't know who any of the cast is except Sam Harris, and he is hysterical. If anything, he makes the show. And David Keith was a blast from the past. If I had to say something negative, that would be about two too many characters. But at this point, I cannot imagine cutting anyone. In fact, Sam and Sara should be expanded. I hope they give it a very long shot. It's a really bad time slot and night. Expand

    Interesting characters. Some decent laughs but the show is very stiff and the acting largely questionable.
