Critic Reviews for Baby Daddy Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (7)

A recycled premise is delivered in a script full of flat, lazy jokes, many of which we wouldn't even recognize as jokes if the actors weren't hitting the punch lines so hard.

They're actually all sitcom pros here. Baby Daddy knows the drill, and borrows from the best.

It does well what standard sitcoms do.

While Baby Daddy never ventures into obnoxiousness, the show may actually be too saccharine for most audiences.

What easily could be a trite rehashing of the man-learns-to-cope-with-baby's-bodily-functions quips (of which there are plenty) turns out to have some heart.

A stench, not unlike that of a dirty diaper, hangs hot and heavy over ABC Family's Baby Daddy.

Keep trying, guys. It can't be that hard to make me and teenage girls laugh.

Everything is stiff and off-putting and weird.

Baby Daddy is as stale as an old Diaper Genie, a series of poopy one-liners, powdered with little "Aw"-inducing moments of heart.

Even if you could forgive its lack of creativity, it's difficult to overlook its absurdly clunky execution. Oh, and the fact that it isn't very funny.
