  1. 100
    Not only the funniest new show this season, but the strangest one since "Get A Life."
  2. 75
    Funnier and unexpectedly sweeter than the current norm.
  3. Reviewed by: Matt Roush

    Deeply silly, endearingly sweet, a little creepy and undeniably weird.
  4. There's something ominous about running out of fresh ideas in the second or third episode.
  5. So far, it’s only abrasive.
  6. You can only hope that Blitt, a first-time executive producer, will tire of middle-school humor and move to something a little more satisfying for grown-ups.
  7. 0
    Probably the most mistitled sitcom of the decade.

    Another Daily Show anchor goes on to star in a show. Cordry now joins the likes of Colbert and Carell. The only difference is that The Office Another Daily Show anchor goes on to star in a show. Cordry now joins the likes of Colbert and Carell. The only difference is that The Office and Colbert Report are easily the most hilarious shows you'll find. The Winner is all out crap. The most unfunny sitcom I have seen since The War At Home. And that is very unfunny. I can't wait to see this show fail, and oh, it will fail. The only thing I enjoyed was seeing Cordry, my least favorite Daily Show correspondent, end up in a pile of vile smelling burning trash like this. Atleast with a laugh track, guys like Jeff H and Dave M won't feel so alone in their laughter, even though they desperately and hopelessly are. I avoid watching Fox now because I might see a comercial for this offensively bad show, a comercial which would only promise another 30 minutes in television hell. Expand
