On every level, Guys With Kids fails to meet even the most basic standards of mediocre studio sitcoms.

Shows a profound misunderstanding not only of what entertainment is but also of the last 30 years in the evolution of the American family.

Guys With Kids never really succeeds at being particularly funny, but had it not focused so heavily on Chris and Sheila's dysfunctional relationship, it might have avoided being actively offensive.
September 26, 2012
Truly, all the actors on Guys With Kids - even the unknown children used as props - deserve better writing than what they get in this crummy, unimaginative sitcom.
September 26, 2012
Unfortunately, the show offers few genuine laughs.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

Guys with Kids is the sitcom equivalent of a loaded diaper.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/4
September 26, 2012
It's far too mediocre to be truly provocative even if the premise is a carefully camouflaged bit of retrograde.
September 26, 2012
The show certainly couldn't survive on the basis of its humor, because there is none.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

If this is the ideal of a "broad" comedy, we'll be waiting for something more specific.
September 26, 2012
There are some adorable tots mugging hard on NBC's Guys with Kids. The adults muck it all up.

As an actual guy with kids, I feel I can say with some authority that NBC's new Jimmy Fallon-created sitcom Guys with Kids is terrible.
September 26, 2012
Modern guys may have all manner of hilarious, disturbing and conflicting feelings about their children and the role of caregiver, but none of them make it into the pilot.
September 26, 2012
Not that it's a well-oiled farcical machine like Friends, mind you - not yet, anyway. But it has that sort of light, peppy feeling.
September 26, 2012
Parenting can be a tough slog, but I've always found it to come with more laughs than this sorry show.
September 26, 2012
NBC wants broad comedy and this is pretty much as broad as it gets; riddled with cliches and tired humor about men being stupid.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
September 26, 2012
The grating laugh track works against the show.

September 26, 2012
Jimmy Fallon must be in it for the money, (not the funny.)
September 26, 2012
The people on Guys With Kids are fun to be with, but real people with real time constraints might decide they have better things to do.
September 26, 2012
A brutally awful sitcom that carries the stench of a fully loaded diaper.
September 26, 2012
The storylines in the episode are as old as the sitcom itself: pissing off a wife and then making it up to her, and crashing and burning on a date, but now...it's with kids!
