    Uninspired but competently workmanlike. [4 Mar 1997]

    Too many characters quip too wise, but San Giacomo has a nice way with a line, David Spade plays a good unctuous photographer and Segal is his normal exasperating self. [4 Mar 1997]

    Tonight's premiere traffics in strident put-downs before turning sticky. This show with a split personality needs analysis, not reviewing. [4 Mar 1997]

    A long shot to return in September... It won't be missed. [4 Mar 1997]

    It's an enigma, at the very least uneven.

    "Just Shoot Me" does score passing comic points, but all too seldom. [4 Mar 1997]

    Given how starved the show is for laughs, it's hard to believe that it was created by Steven Levitan, who established himself as a writer for such superior programs as "Frasier" and "The Larry Sanders Show." Add in the considerable comedic talents of George Segal and David Spade, and the failure of "Just Shoot Me" becomes even more troubling. [4 Mar 1997]
