    Wilson, who writes and serves as co-­executive producer, brings a sense of innocence to the sometimes ribald shenanigans.

    [An] amusing, endearing, female-buddy sitcom.

    The jokes fly furiously during the first episode, and the delivery is impeccable all around.

    This is a series about outcasts trying to find their way in, and it's often at its best in its quieter moments.

    Super Fun Night isn't the world's greatest show, but it has some serious potential.

    There's a glimmer of hope here, and her name is Rebel Wilson. Now, the show needs to match her talents.

    More risk-taking with the jokes and stepping up to the comedy from the rest of the cast and the show might eventually become something--and that's only if they can come up with enough stories for what is essentially a thin, workplace/home life crossover sitcom.

    Unfortunately, though Wilson remains gorgeously fearless in her willingness to go all in, neither the network nor Wilson (she is an executive producer) know quite what to do with that.

    This is one that is built so thoroughly around a personality that it seems like someone forgot to fill the actual show in around the edges of that personality.

    The humor is generally broad, although Wilson doesn't always play it that way, and when she showcases a bit of wry, knowing wit we remember from "Pitch Perfect," I see glimmers of hope.

    Super Fun Night isn’t entirely super-bad, but so far that’s about the good thing to be said about it.

    Don’t be a version of a sitcom character that we’ve seen before. And be a character. Don’t just be Rebel Wilson in a star vehicle.

    The grotesque extremes to which Wilson stoops to get laughs in this frenetic vehicle have a whiff of desperation.... Her workplace feels like a retread of elements of Sara Rue's Less Than Perfect.

    It's a slight enough premise but one that could work if Kimmie had even a quarter of the confidence of her creator.

    Ms. Wilson is an original who has proved that she can be very funny, and a premiere episode is rarely the best indicator of how a show will develop. But the first glimpse of Super Fun Night is disappointing.

    While Wilson’s boisterous personality can’t help but occasionally charm, the material is relatively slight, and having now seen two stabs at establishing the central trio, one fears the idea bank isn’t nearly as deep as it should be.

    It's all too cringe-worthy, even as Wilson goes all out to show us that she's happy the joke's on her. Even if you applaud her for that, Super Fun Night is not funny enough to be so sad.

    As a package, Super Fun Night isn't much fun at all. The Kendall character is just too obviously mean and pretty and successful.

    Once more we plunge into the unsettling, split-personality narrative of today’s post-feminist young women, whose theme song may as well be 'You Are 27 Going on 12.'

    I don't know who the girl in the fat suit is but the jokes on me because I don't get it at all. I did not laugh a single time from beginning to end. If this is the future of network sitcoms, then just stop making them. This and the Michael J Fox show are abysmal. The Asian girl was funny in apt. 23, in this she looks like shes struggling through a bad Saturday Night Live sketch. Cringe worthy performances across the board. Full Review »
