Critic Reviews for Desus & Mero Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (8)

Despite the kinks, Desus & Mero is still a joy and even a potential game-changer.

Aug 9, 2019 | Full Review…

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

Mar 5, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

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%.

Jun 4, 2019 | Full Review…

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

Jun 4, 2019 | Full Review…

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.

Jun 4, 2019 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

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

Mar 27, 2019 | Full Review…

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.

Feb 22, 2019 | Full Review…

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.

Feb 22, 2019 | Full Review…

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.

Feb 27, 2019 | Full Review…

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

Feb 26, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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

    How on earth do you screw up an interview with Bill Burr? He is comedy gold, but their interview with him was just painfully awkward. These guys just aren't funny. But props to them for not getting overly political.

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