February 14, 2019
As with All in the Family, we've never seen anything quite like this on a Big Four broadcast network, let alone CBS.

Tired comedy full of drug references, teen stereotypes.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

It's a technically proficient, otherwise promising sitcom that wastes these merits on the disastrous decision to let trauma become the driving force of its comedy.

The show feels like it cobbled together pieces of other shows - especially The WB's "What I Like About You" - to become its own perfectly pleasant sitcom Frankenstein. Even when it doesn't do much to distinguish itself, it's just fine.

Fam is a potentially good sitcom loaded down by horrible, broad jokes. Perhaps the good sitcom will appear before viewers tune out.

[A] bland new sitcom.

Fam boasts an almost outrageously good cast, one plugged into the most hollow and familiar of premises and then fed with a broad assortment of reheated multi-generational punchlines.

It's a widely held belief that networks premiere their B-list shows in midseason. If they were any good, they would premiere in the fall, right? Fam proves that across the board.

It works often enough; a beachhead has been established.
