Season 1
Carol's Second Act

Critics Consensus

While Carol's Second Act earns high marks for bringing Patricia Heaton front and center, awkward plotting and lackluster jokes hold it back from living up to its star's high standards.

Audience Reviews for Carol's Second Act: Season 1

  • Jul 16, 2021
    Love Patricia Heaton, but this show was a disaster.
  • Jul 12, 2021
    CBS again screws the pooch! GREAT SHOW, DIFFERENT AND STARTING HITTING THE STRIDE, THEN CANCELLED. Don't worry they will renew B Positive.........like how?
  • Sep 10, 2020
    The jokes are horrible and the standard multi-camera, standard sitcom format, computer generated laughter only serves to obviate the lazy writing and lazier acting. Patricia Heaton did The Middle for 8 years and it was awesome by comparison. I do not know why she would go out of her way to move backwards.
  • May 10, 2020
    I love this show. I'm hoping that they reconsider.
  • Mar 07, 2020
    In my opinion, It's the worst show of the season.
  • Feb 14, 2020
    I love it!!!! So funny!
  • Jan 26, 2020
    Carol's Second Act is a horrible show. It's supposed to be a comedy, yet there's nothing funny to laugh at - the jokes all fall flat. Time to cancel this series.
  • Jan 23, 2020
    Expected more from Patricia Heaton. Love her in Raymond & The Middle. This was a disappointment.
  • Jan 17, 2020
    I love Patricia Heaton, but this new show was not funny.
  • Jan 15, 2020
    Patricia Heaton definitely carries the show. The supporting characters seem to be forcing out lackluster, forced jokes. It's just not that funny.
