At one point she fosters a child to work as her assistant. She's precisely as awful as every scheming antihero from the golden age of TV, and it's brilliant.

Raunchy and at times genuinely funny, Apartment 23 is jam-packed with promise - and inconsistencies.

April 11, 2012
One of the funniest of the new batch of female-centric comedies, with a fine supporting cast.
April 11, 2012
Strong ensemble, wit and James Van Der Beek as BFF make this one to watch.
April 11, 2012
Unlike some of the more uneven odd-couple series that have premiered in recent years, Apartment 23 could turn into a trustworthy address for laughs.
April 11, 2012
It's intriguing for how it balances sweetness and sleaze.
April 11, 2012
That isn't to say the show lacks charm, only that its irreverence and madcap energy disguises a conventional mismatched buddy comedy.
April 11, 2012
It's an unpretentiously low-down sitcom about a female odd couple - morally speaking, that is - with characters sufficiently odd, plots that unfold with sufficient zest, to lure a viewer in.
April 11, 2012
There's material and promise here. The show's quirky supporting characters already don't seem to be just caricatures who set up sex jokes.

While there are moments of snappy dialogue, it's sometimes snappier than the characters themselves.
April 11, 2012
Isn't particularly funny, but at least it doesn't have a laugh track to beat you over the head with this fact.
April 11, 2012
Even though there are some inspired quips zinging past, I found it all kind of shrivel-hearted and limp.
April 11, 2012
For the sake of this enjoyable little half-hour, let's hope it never tries to get too good.
April 11, 2012
I'm eager to follow Apartment 23 because it brings a unique, surreal tone to ABC's sitcom stable that I haven't felt from any of the network's offerings since Better Off Ted.

The title would be less irritating if it didn't clash with the show itself, which is promising and, so far, seems pretty aware of what it is and what it isn't.

You can trust that this B- is pretty d- funny.

April 11, 2012
This tart and tangy comedy earns its attitude.
April 11, 2012
A deliciously nasty comedy that takes a well-worn formula and whips it to life with clever writing and an engaging cast.

While the show generally maneuvers well, it occasionally stumbles.
