    At best, it reminds sitcom fans that quality work is still being done in multi-camera; at worst, it’s a decent distraction during the hiatus for Heelan’s other show, the final link to a comic dynasty that wasn’t meant to be.

    Undateable, a show that does not set out to reinvent the multi-camera hangout comedy but execute that format reasonably well, turned out to be a generally pleasant surprise.

    Amusing, dumb, silly--exactly what you'd expect.

    Both [Undateable and "The Night Shift"] are NBC series serving as spring-summer filler, adequate at what they do but not worth scheduling your life around.

    It's still hard to expect much out of a sitcom arriving on broadcast TV in summer. In the case of NBC's Undateable, that's a good attitude. If you get a few laughs out of it, great. Otherwise, no hopes will be dashed.

    Since just about every character is neurotic, cartoonish or annoying, you end up rooting for them to remain dateless.

    Undateable probably isn’t a show many sitcom fans will want to make a standing date to watch.

    NONE of the critic reviews for this show have been since it went LIVE. This was a great show since season 1. It's an even BETTER show now. ANONE of the critic reviews for this show have been since it went LIVE. This was a great show since season 1. It's an even BETTER show now. A brilliant cast, with great actors and hilarious comedians...given free reign to improv - LIVE on national tv. No other "sitcom" on television does this.
    Plus- the writers and cast use social media in ways that have never been done before. You can tweet with them, see a periscope from the writers room DAILY, and even call a dedicated phone (the Danny phone) and often talk to a cast member - or get pictures via text. It offers an experience for the fans that is truly unique.
    While I'm sure it's easy for someone to watch ONE episode and verbally bash it to oblivion on the internet (negative reviews are so much more fun to write), if they would at least take the time to give it a chance - I'm almost sure they would fall in love with the show, just as the rest of us have. The UndateableLive cast/crew have certainly put in more heart, time and effort into creating this 30 min of entertainment than any other show I have ever watched. I truly hope NBC can see that and give it another season (and better time slot) for others to enjoy it as well.

Isn't that what they're supposed to be? There is nothing complicated or pretentious about this show, it's just a bunch of funny people doing/saying a bunch of funny things. The perfect way to unwind after a long day.
    Ron Funches might be the best thing about this show with his one-liners, but the gay character is funny too and the two leads (Danny and Justin) make a great odd-couple pairing.
    I will season pass this show for sure. NBC could have their Big Bang Theory is they give this a shot.

One thing to note, I did not start with episode one, but rather episode 8 or so. The cast is fantastic, and have great chemistry together. Hopefully the people who make show decisions read the FAN reviews and ignore the critics.

    Honestly one of the best sitcom groups I've come across is years.
