[Paula Marshall] gestures so madly with her hands, as if somehow motion equals funny, as if she could magically make the new CBS sitcom take flight.

The comedic equivalent of the phrase ''Hey, I just work here.''

The premiere episode is pretty lackluster overall, with obvious punchlines and predictable characterizations.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Women are shrill killjoys out to destroy fun. That's the concept that animates the formulaic new CBS comedy "Gary Unmarried."

The domestic family jokes flow easily on "Gary Unmarried."

Boiled down to a personal ad, "Gary Unmarried" would read as follows: "Divorced white male seeks audience. Has two kids, quarrelsome ex-wife, and one-night stand/possible g.f. Those looking for anything fresh, new or consistently amusing need not apply."
