    "The Sarah Silverman Program" is full of scenes that sound funny on paper... but in execution pass by without eliciting even a small chuckle.

    The Sarah Silverman Program isn't about anything but its own supposed daring and the hyperbolic smugness of its star.

    Silverman reminds us how quickly the novelty can wear off while watching a pixie with a potty mouth.

    "The Sarah Silverman Program" has all of the charms of a joke with an audible fart as the punch line.
  5. The word "juvenile" doesn't begin to describe "The Sarah Silverman Show." It completely describes it.

    This thing is a joke. And by that I mean a very bad one. Shes not a funny person, its poorly written and time wasting. And I cant help but ask myself how much Tim Goodman was paid to write his review of the show. Full Review »

    the word 'pointless' imidiately comes to mind. certainly a daring attempt at postmodern comedy, but this falls well short of clever. awful acting, stereotyped characters and absurd plot developments. the humour is SO low-brow my face hit the floor. in the opening credits, sarah sings "i need to film myself while i pee" or something. i mean, who actually finds that funny? a generous score of 1, simply because she's pretty hot, and a stoner :) Full Review »

    The Sarah Silverman Program is a masterpiece of vulgarity and racism. Sarah Silverman is unapologetically offensive and rude which makes her all the more hilarious. The show has its share of misses, but it usually hits right on target. I love it. Full Review »
