Critic Consensus: At times, the laugh track is distracting, but the talented cast in Ground Floor makes the most of the script and delivers first-rate jokes with an underlying vulnerability.

Tv Season Info
The series becomes a slick, professionally made comedy with skilled actors making the most of one-note characters.
An instantly appealing ensemble, from Astin's "soulless upstairs tool" to Rory Scovel as the downstairs dude from "a very competitive community college."
We like the people and the jokes are funny. We know there's something vulnerable and even poignant behind that barrage of one-liners.
It's not such a bad thing to have a TV comedy that hearkens back to the time when everyone sat home watching sitcoms on Thursday nights.
One thing that might improve this office comedy is a few pink slips - upstairs, downstairs and off-camera.
As someone who despairs for humanity watching most of the current crop of them [multi-cam sitcoms], basic competence with the form is enormously welcome. Ground Floor already has that, and quickly demonstrates the potential for much more.
