I Love You, America with Sarah Silverman

Critics Consensus

Earnest and sarcastic, crude but compassionate, I Love You America is a welcome dose of optimism in an overly cynical late-night landscape.

Critic Reviews for I Love You, America with Sarah Silverman Season 1

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (4)

I'm glad Silverman has a venue for this because we should have a venue for this. The other political late night hosts can feel like they're preaching.

Dec 27, 2017 | Full Review…

In short, contemporary politics is all feeling; what it lacks is empathy. Thus, Silverman's task - to use the former as a vehicle for the latter - is a noble one. And she most certainly has her work cut out for her.

Dec 27, 2017 | Full Review…

Shouldn't we have minimum expectations that the show can minimally fulfill its implied mandate by inspiring viewers to truly find common ground beyond a shared affection for scatological humor.

Oct 26, 2017 | Full Review…

Silverman has tapped into a surprisingly vibrant strain of broadness at an otherwise disruptive time for television.

Sep 6, 2018 | Full Review…

It's short, it's quick, it hits good beats... She's definitely coming in with a bang.

Aug 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Instead, Sarah Silverman's going for something unique in the political commentary world: genuine compassion. And, with her interviews, she seems eager to prove that compassion is the only thing that can really make change.

Dec 19, 2017 | Full Review…

I Love You, America really comes alive when Silverman leaves the studio.

Dec 27, 2017 | Full Review…

Some viewers will find these conversations galling and ill-considered; for those willing to stick around, however, I Love You, America is a fascinating, if occasionally challenging exploration of what, precisely, a streaming talk show can do.

Dec 27, 2017 | Full Review…

But the strange cocktail of earnestness and sarcasm, sincerity and self-awareness, political commentary and dumb gags, is like nothing else on television or streaming.

Dec 27, 2017 | Full Review…

Talk show offers hilarious, profane food for thought.

Oct 24, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

In a world of unrelenting political hostility, I Love You, America rides the distinction between empathy and condescension as well as it hits the sweet spot between relevance and relief.

Oct 16, 2017 | Full Review…

I Love You, America is trying to get us through something, offer some currency. The way Silverman's doing it just might take some getting used to.

Audience Reviews for I Love You, America with Sarah Silverman: Season 1

  • Mar 27, 2019
    What a piece of garbage, this show is terrible, just idiotic rants from a far left perspective.
  • Jan 09, 2019
    Another shining example of how the rotten tomatoes 'critics' are out of touch, full of crap hacks. Hulu just cancelled this pile of garbage that the audience scored 54%. Good riddance.
  • Dec 10, 2018
    I think people who expect to like this show will like it. People who expect to hate it will hate it. Anyone else should consider that this is a low production value, personal show. Sarah says some things that even her friends don't agree with. She gives voice to people that she definitely disagrees with. She tries to take it down a notch and let the viewer know that "both sides" (because all real issues have only two options) are made up of actual people. Probably not as funny or serious as it could be, so maybe it's just right.
  • Nov 08, 2018
    I used to love Sarah Silverman, but she's just not funny anymore. This is show is more political and I'd rather laugh at the end of the end. I don't laugh at this show. It just makes me severely depressed.
  • Sep 28, 2018
    Terrible attempts at humor by the left. I watched the episode with bill burr because he's hilarious but she managed to ruin that too. She just kept telling him who she thought he was and making up stories of how they are really best friends but its obvious by his body language and his comments he doesn't like her anymore than the rest of us.
  • Sep 27, 2018
    The critics are so f... up.
  • Sep 02, 2018
    Silverman continues to grab at straws while her "comedy" hobby goes down in flames. She uses hate and insults as substitutes for jokes. She would take offense if people make fun of her but it's fully okay for her to do that. Don't waste your time.

    Ihave just lost all faith in Rotten Tomatoes. Yes, we have all figured out that some people are paid to create enough fake profiles and bogus reviews to increase a movie or shows, but I had no idea it had gotten this bad. This show is not merely bad; it's painful to watch. Instead of laughing, thanks to the blatantly offensive and deeply bigoted things Silverman says, the entire thing elicits one cringe after another. Still, worse than the lack of humor and overall offensiveness of the show, is Silverman's attitude. How someone so clueless can also be condescending is beyond me/ Honestly, the only value I can see this show having is for viewers who already despise Silverman because they would probably get a kick out of watching her embarrass herself. Alas, the larger issue remains, the ratings here serve as irrefutable proof that Rotten Tomatoes scores are devoid of credibility because there is absolutely no way the public would score this vile nonsense so high. In fact, I wish negative stars was an option because a negative score might save someone of exposing themselves to this rather toxic show.

    Painful to watch. Too bad Sarah is so high on pot she doesn't realize how far she's fallen.
  • Oct 13, 2017
    A fervant forray into an uncomfortable yet hilarious experience. Sarah Silverman presents us with yet another measure of comic genius. With a fresh take on what is and isnt acceptable in comedy; this show takes spot on aim at the horror of the human body in shame based societies; and the political tropes of the undereducated far right. If you are coming expecting any sort of show you have seen before; this isn't. This is a fresh take on modern comedy/late night interviews from a comedianess that still hasn't lost her touch.
