Critic Reviews for Desus & Mero Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

Raucous newcomer that can be highly entertaining, at other moments off-putting -- caveat emptor -- but the future does look promising.

But perhaps what Desus and Mero did best was keep their new show feeling familiar, yet fun and exciting, for longtime Bodega Hive members, while also welcoming new viewers to their particular (and rather strong) brand of comedy.

New voices in late night TV are fresh, smart, topical.

The brand is strong. It's early to make pronouncements, but the premiere of Showtime's Desus & Mero still feels like a breath of fresh air, even in the ever-more-crowded landscape of late-night comedy.

The Showtime version, god bless, is just professional enough, but no more. Which is why I found myself laughing like an idiot...

That Ocasio-Cortez would be the new iteration's first guest couldn't be more appropriate: she's also won a following for breaking into a white-dominated institution with frankness, reason, and a refreshing contempt for the 1%.

The show, like the snack, is salty and slightly sweet, and its crispness is a sign of its authenticity.

The initial outing revealed a few weaknesses in the new format, but it retained the humor, point of view, and boisterous energy that makes Desus and Mero an essential late-night addition.

They don't obsess about politics and are happy to take swipes at whatever low-hanging fruit they can find.

I've always got room for another weekly half-hour, though, and after this promising debut, I'm ready to add Showtime's Desus & Mero to my rotation.

Audience Reviews for Desus & Mero: Season 1

Not able to keep my interest. I want my old show back. You can take this 30 min a week bull! Plus Showtime sucks.
