Critic Consensus: Go On's ensemble cast is terrific, but the show's focus is stretched very thin between a crowded stable of characters.

Silveri aims so hard to please that he ends up missing the target entirely.

Go On had better do more to support Perry or this will go down as a terrible waste of his talent.

Sep 11, 2012 | Full Review…

Go On gives Matthew Perry fresh material that suits his style: bemused, exasperated, impatient, quick, droll, hiding something.

Sep 11, 2012 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Beneath its estimable comic trappings, Go On is something larger: a meditation on what makes life worth living.

Sep 11, 2012 | Full Review…

The ensemble is talented, but there's no heart.

Sep 11, 2012 | Full Review…

Go On obviously won't be off the charts ratings-wise, as Friends was for most of its run. It might settle in, though, with Perry still a solidly capable comedic actor looking to nest a while.

By the end I was convinced that the joke is actually on us, that in order to empathize with these people they had to make you depressed with the wasted potential in the pilot.

Perry embraces what we all loved about Chandler (cynicism, sarcasm, and heart) and takes it in a new direction.

I find myself laughing quite a bit.

Sep 11, 2012 | Full Review…

As much as I laughed during the pilot, I also received goosebumps during some of the more heartfelt moments that occurred.
