    One of the best sitcoms of the 2012 season. An amazingly funny family comedy that is an explosion of fun for everyone. Watch this once and you will laugh as hard as you did in a long time. Every Wednesday at 10, watch it on TV Land.

    Something about this TV Land sitcom really evokes the "good old days" of the multi-camera format. The chemistry between Cedric The Entertainer and Niecy Nash is completely believable, and TV Land manages to throw in its standard racy lines here and there making it fit right in during its 10PM time slot.

    The Soul Man isn't great, but it's the best sitcom yet developed for TV Land. [2 Jul 2012, p.40]

    There's nothing wrong with TV Land trying to revive the old-school, multi-camera sitcom but the pilot for this show wouldn't have cut it in the 1980s.

    The show, warm and cheesy, fits right in as another nacho plate on the network's menu of comfort food, another new sitcom that plays like a re-enactment of an old one.
