Critic Reviews for Great News Season 2

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (6)

It's a funny show, but it's working through some growing pains, trying to find its voice and figure out its cast chemistry, which, to be fair, it took 30 Rock about a season to do as well.

There are enough laughs to match the talent involved. The well-utilized cast is charming, the writing a bit sharper, and, oddly enough, the arcs feel more original.

Great News has the hallmarks of another of those belated Netflix favorites. It's so rocket-paced that it almost demands multiple viewings to catch all the one-liners and oddball cultural references.

While the writing has its moments of brilliance, as a whole the show feels stagnant.

Dec 27, 2017 | Full Review…

Most things get significantly better when you add Tina Fey to them. So it makes sense that adding the 30 Rock alum to the Season 2 cast of NBC's Great News takes an already-fun sitcom and elevates it about a bazillion notches.

Sep 29, 2017 | Full Review…

Tina Fey puts a little more juice in her "Great News" (NBC, 9:30 p.m.) by joining the cast as a tough new executive and just like that the series moves from cute to genuinely funny...

Sep 28, 2017 | Full Review…

What sets Great News apart - aside from the quality of its writing and its unsung ensemble - is its uncommon sweetness.

Oct 4, 2018 | Full Review…

Great News has a screwball charm and a flair for rapid-fire jokes, built on a premise that amusingly literalizes the classic sitcom concept of co-workers as family.

Jan 25, 2018 | Full Review…

... the show is a fitting successor to the series that appears to have inspired it-fast and funny and appealingly strange, especially now that it's past the scene-setting of Season 1.

Sep 28, 2017 | Full Review…

What follows our introductory glimpse at Diana's creepiness is a perfect, not-so-subtle takedown of the way society as a whole treats women who have been preyed upon by their male superiors.
