Critic Reviews for Daytime Divas Season 1

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (6)

There's hugging and learning, as well as stabs at campy, sudsy fun. But to me it's a lost opportunity to dig into any truths about how women work together. We get plenty of outfits and outsized egos, but little insight.

Aug 9, 2017 | Full Review…

Daytime Divas never settles on a tone, never finds anything really interesting to say about its world and only occasionally rises to the level of mediocrity.

Jun 7, 2017 | Full Review…

The cat fights might be fun if there weren't so many "twists" and the plot points weren't so messy.

Jun 7, 2017 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

It's like diva turned up to 11: If you're here for the fancy clothes, issues, scandals, insults, and catfights, you are definitely watching the right television program.

Jun 7, 2017 | Rating: B | Full Review…

If the show can maintain that tricky balance, while remaining entertaining and fun, Daytime Divas could be your perfect summer escape.

Jun 5, 2017 | Rating: 7.8/10 | Full Review…

If you just admire any send-up of television itself, it is very entertaining.

Jun 2, 2017 | Full Review…

What makes Daytime Divas appealing is the idea that the over-the-top behavior it features might actually be reality.

Jun 8, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Monday's series premiere, an hourlong parade of brawls, backstabs and bitchy one-liners, is a solid sampling of what the grade-A guilty pleasure has to offer.

Jun 6, 2017 | Full Review…

The series begins to feel more rote and like something we've seen before and don't necessarily need to see again.

    I love this show! It is fast paced and has some funny one liners in addition to the soapy plots.

    They've got my attention hopefully they'll keep it

    absolutely delightful. it´s a show written by women, about women. The female protagonists are strong with well developed arcs, they are friends, they support each other, grow, compete, have goal, dreams, secrets.... It is hard to watch comedy shows with female protagonists without too much stereotypes. Which is really irritating because those funny, competent can talk about anything women are everywhere in real life. It is interesting to note that in the critics, so many MEN wrote that the show don´t have anything interesting to say and also that is something "already seen before".

    Best show I have seen in a long time. Love the shade. Love Vanessa Williams. First couple of episodes were a little slow but they got their groove and the scripts and cast work well.

    I just watched the very first episode of "Daytime Divas" and I have to say that overall it's a pretty interesting show with lots of drama for sure! I feel like this show could be a great summer guilty pleasure for many people but it's also neat because it gives you a look at behind the scenes of TV talk shows!
