It's not such a bad thing to have a TV comedy that hearkens back to the time when everyone sat home watching sitcoms on Thursday nights.

One thing that might improve this office comedy is a few pink slips - upstairs, downstairs and off-camera.

The breezy new TBS sitcom Ground Floor sometimes seems to have taken its premise from the scene in Titanic where Leonardo DiCaprio takes Kate Winslet down below deck to show her how the lower classes have fun.

By Episode 3 all of this is clicking nicely.

As someone who despairs for humanity watching most of the current crop of them [multi-cam sitcoms], basic competence with the form is enormously welcome. Ground Floor already has that, and quickly demonstrates the potential for much more.

Don't sell this sleeper short. It's the best original comedy TBS has yet produced

We like the people and the jokes are funny. We know there's something vulnerable and even poignant behind that barrage of one-liners.

There is a professional efficiency to much of the comedy. (It is funny sometimes.) But [Briga] Heelan is remarkably alive and in the moment; she makes real all that she touches. I could easily recommend tuning in just to watch her work - and hereby do.

The show succeeds with a likable cast and some good jokes and manages to overcome the premise and the laugh track. It's not revolutionary, but it was never meant to be.

Hollywood Reporter

Most of the young, relatively untested actors in Ground Floor are not nearly as talented at creating endearing characters; in the first two episodes the characters are mostly just ciphers.

To: TBS... It has come to our attention... that the network leaves itself open for legal action with the continued use of its slogan "Very Funny" if it persists in airing such painfully unfunny dreck as this show

It's the undercurrent of resentment flowing in two directions that raises Ground Floor, if not to TV comedy's penthouse, at least to its second floor.

The series becomes a slick, professionally made comedy with skilled actors making the most of one-note characters.

An instantly appealing ensemble, from Astin's "soulless upstairs tool" to Rory Scovel as the downstairs dude from "a very competitive community college."

It's too bad the series doesn't have a little bit more courage, or the creative ambition to deliver genuine satiric bite.
