Critic Reviews for Telenovela Season 1

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (13)

Telenovela may not have depth, but watching Longoria mug for the camera ain't a bad way to spend half an hour.

Fun, light, colorful and original.

The show also wears well, with Longoria vigorously in the forefront and a solid supporting cast led by scene-stealers Diana Maria Riva and Alex Meneses.

Top Critic

Writers Chrissy Pietrosh and Jessica Goldstein, from "Cougar Town" and "My Name Is Earl," find a way to create an ensemble of characters around Longoria who are broad caricatures and yet recognizably human.

Telenovela manages to mine a few culturally specific tropes for some genuinely universal laughs.

Jan 6, 2016 | Full Review…

A comedy that strains for fizzy yet comes off as frantic, like so many other network comedies this show wastes great actors -- in particular the divine Eva Longoria -- on bad writing.

Dec 9, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Silly and eccentric but not quite graceful enough to be considered irreverent, producer/star Eva Longoria's eager commitment to the premise still allows Telenovela to crackle with great jokes and solid physical comedy.

Dec 7, 2015 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Longoria and most of the cast are charming; if you're looking for well-performed, lightweight entertainment, here it is.

Dec 7, 2015 | Full Review…

Although Telenovela takes its name from an exuberantly dramatic genre of soap opera, its plots are mundane.

Jan 7, 2016 | Full Review…

While Telenovela employs a lot of Latin actors, it doesn't give them enough good lines to make the latest entry in the Too Much Television universe worth your time.
