Critic Reviews for Welcome to the Family: Season 1

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (16) | Fresh (13) | Rotten (18)

There isn't one plausible moment in the pilot of a series that seems to be seeking the Hispanic audience and is about as much fun as a forced marriage.

Full Review… | October 14, 2013
Buffalo News

Welcome to the Family just needs a little spark to go from an OK comedy to a really good one.

Full Review… | October 10, 2013
E! Online

Welcome to the Family finds greater interest in watching its characters scream at each other than in trying to get them to operate as a family.

Full Review… | October 8, 2013
Time Out Chicago

The antipathy the writers have for Molly kills a lot of the show's already deficient sense of humor, not to mention its supposedly positive "up with family" messaging.

Television Without Pity
Top Critic

Welcome to the Family has no edge at all, not even a pretend edge.

Full Review… | October 4, 2013
New York Magazine/Vulture

Welcome is more successful for the situation it establishes than it is for any comedic moments.

Full Review… | October 4, 2013
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

It fits in with the other new entries in NBC's Thursday night comedy lineup and could easily grow into a strong show that sticks around for quite a while. That's all dependent on you giving it a chance, though.

How about a parade of stale stereotypes?

Full Review… | October 3, 2013
Philadelphia Inquirer

Welcome to the Family's storyline is so predictable, it doesn't warrant watching.

Full Review… | October 3, 2013
Under the Radar

This is the kind of exaggerated, cliched humor more common to CBS, laugh-track sitcoms despite the best efforts of a talented cast.

Full Review… | October 3, 2013
HollywoodChicago.com

There's nothing terrible about the pilot of NBC's "Welcome to the Family," but nothing that explains how it attracted Mike O'Malley, Mary McCormack, Ricardo A. Chavira and Justina Machado.

Philadelphia Daily News

I like Welcome to the Family. I like the actors, I like the characters. It feels comfortable.

Salt Lake Tribune

[It's] agreeably forgettable.

Full Review… | October 3, 2013
TV Guide

Welcome to the Family is a miscarriage of comedy.

Full Review… | October 3, 2013
Boston Herald

Welcome to the Family is not as bad as it sounds, mostly because some of the writing is clever, and all the actors are good.

Full Review… | October 3, 2013
New York Times

At times, this feels like the edgiest comedy of 1970, and at others it's just trying to figure out what exactly to do with appealing performers like O'Malley, Chavira...[etc]. The end result is inoffensive and mostly forgettable.

Full Review… | October 3, 2013

The best of the witty bunch is NBC's Welcome to the Family, which will probably raise some hackles with its light-hearted look at teenage pregnancy... But it's hard to stay mad at a show this waggish.

Full Review… | October 3, 2013
Miami Herald

Welcome to the Family plays like some "inspired" notion of a "cross-cultural" "modern" "single-camera comedy," and no, those quotes aren't typos.

Top Critic

[O'Malley] and McCormack instantly create a dryly endearing couple, while he and Chavira may turn out to have the most fruitful antagonism since Maude met Archie Bunker.

Full Review… | October 3, 2013
Los Angeles Times

Gets off to an ok start, but this is a series that needs time to grow and figure out how to get the best out of its characters.

CinemaBlend.com

I have no idea how Welcome to the Family will pan out, but I do know that O'Malley and Chavira and McCormack elevated the material they were given.

Full Review… | October 2, 2013
Hollywood Reporter

There are no awful characters and no bad actors; this is a cute little show that exceeds expectations.

Full Review… | October 2, 2013
USA Today

Welcome to the Family is a passable half-hour that fends for itself without a laugh track and manages to deliver a few un-goosed grins.

Full Review… | October 2, 2013
Uncle Barky

While Family has predictable moments, it has the potential to provide some pleasant surprises.

Full Review… | October 2, 2013
New York Daily News

NBC's new sitcom Welcome to the Family is a laboriously constructed piece of fluff.

Full Review… | October 1, 2013
Media Life

Welcome to the Family may have the most potential of the new Thursday comedies, for the simple reason that it depends largely on careful character development as the grounding for its humor.

Full Review… | October 1, 2013
San Francisco Chronicle

Just when you're about to dismiss it... there's a late plot twist that promises to take the story in an intriguing new direction.

Full Review… | October 1, 2013
Associated Press

Funny sitcom glosses over reality of teen pregnancy.

Full Review… | October 1, 2013
Common Sense Media
Top Critic

A sitcom with all the depth of a knock-knock joke.

Full Review… | September 27, 2013
Variety

It's the sort of soft-centered mush -- at once back-pattingly liberal and inoffensively conservative -- that seems like a Hollywood focus group's idea of what a potato-fed yokel in, I don't know, Chicago might want to watch.

What a limp and unfunny show; it's just more Thursday-night clutter.
