SEASON:

Season 1
Kenan

Critics Consensus

Kenan benefits from the warmth of its endearing ensemble - led by a reliably solid Kenan Thompson - but its stale sitcom trappings leave something to be desired.

Audience Reviews for Kenan: Season 1

  • Apr 21, 2022
    This show is great! I love the fun, breezy vibe. I really enjoy the meta jokes. Kenan is always funny, and Don Johnson is superb as Rick!
  • Apr 19, 2022
    It's a funny and touching show. It's actually quite pleasant. I've seen Kenan on interviews and he's a genuinely sweet, down-to-earth gentleman, so wonderful for him.

    Horrible, not good!Stupid!
  • May 05, 2021
    I feel horrible because I love Keenan, he's a great guy! I just hate the show and it's not funny at all but I love Keenan!

    I like the cool black energy. It is a more laid back blackish. I like it more all the time and I hope it gets renewed. As someone who is white and worked in a school that was almost 100% black, I miss that unique flavor, the fun people willing to laugh at themselves and the generosity. I like this show.

    This show employs the worst writers and directors of all time. Top stars with loads of talent telling stale jokes, with bad, predictable story lines. It's just so bad.
  • Mar 17, 2021
    Kenan has deserved show for awhile and he delivers with this new show. The writers and supporting actors have also delivered. I've seen a few bad reviews and those who wrote those should stick to PBS. Thanks Kenan for delivering

    Had high hopes and it all fell short. Characters are not funny (especially his co anchor - woof), terrible chemistry, no laughs, and awkward writing. The only redeeming character is Fortune Feimster's. Would be surprised if this gets renewed for another season. Definitely don't know anyone who has enjoyed the show.
  • Mar 05, 2021
    To have the premis of a sitcom be the death of the main character's wife, who we never see is RIDICULOUS ! Can't the producers come up with ANYTHING better ? You have two (2) very funny stars with comedy backgrounds and this is the crap you come up with ? I couldn't take it every time they kept mentioning the DEAD wife. I hoped the next episode with cute this problem but no luck there. How soon can they CANCEL this mess or hopefully find a new writer or theme for this "comedy" ?

    Ufff, Kenan needs to go back to SNL
