    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.

    If there were a Match.com for sitcoms, this show would be blocked, banned and forgotten.

    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.

    This is outstanding comedy. Chris D'Elia subtley brings in an impressive level of physical comedy to his ultra hilarious alpha guy act. The nerd is not a TV nerd in the chiseled troupe sense (Big Bang, 2 and a Half Men, etc, etc, etc). These characters are real and they are really funny. Susan Sarandon's daughter bites the big one, every other character I enjoy... some profusely. Well written, tight and with a tendency to err on the real side as opposed to stereotype, this show was a revelation. If it does not get picked up and run 8 seasons, there is no TV justice in this world. Expand

    This show is by far one of the funniest shows on television. I really hope that it has a second season because I can't do without this show. Best show ever! Expand

    Finally a network comedy that is FUNNY! 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.

    This show is absolutely hilarious! I have a weird sense of humor and everything about it is so funny. Can't wait to see what next season brings. Undateable is new, funny, catchy, not to mention smart. There is definitely chemistry between the actors/actresses! SO funny, definitely watch it :) Expand

    This show is hilarious! The cast clearly improvs frequently and it just works well. Chris D'Elia shines in his character as does the rest of the cast. I laugh continuously!! Expand

    Undateable is a show that i could see a bright future for, it has well developed characters, its very dang funny and a fairly decent plot towards it as well. I think it could be the next "How i Met Your Mother" if given the opportunity. Expand

    Undateable? More like UN-WATCHABLE. And I won't fault the actors on this one, the lines they were given were titanic...in their tragic-ness. Were these writers trained under Stephanie Meyer because after only watching 7 minutes of it, I feel like I'm in the twilight-zone of bad television. Expand
