Kevin (Probably) Saves the World

Critics Consensus

Breezily entertaining, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World relies on its likable lead to carry its still-sketchy premise, hinting at deeper potential that's yet to develop.

Critic Reviews for Kevin (Probably) Saves the World Season 1

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (12)

Whatever the potholes in the plot, Saves the World commendably aspires to be bracing and uplifting in times when a second coming of Touched By An Angel might just do a world of good.

Oct 4, 2017 | Rating: B | Full Review…

A huggable charmer with a big heart that can't decide whether to go deep or skim the surface.

Oct 2, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The first episode is so sappy it belongs on pancakes - and, yes, I realize the world is hurting, but patronizingly low-grade inspirational junk like this is not the answer to anyone's problems.

Sep 25, 2017 | Full Review…

... the biggest obstacle that Kevin (Probably) Saves the World has to overcome is its tendency to descend into mawkishness.

Oct 4, 2017 | Full Review…

Jason Ritter is so likeable in his sadness and Kevin (Probably) Saves the World so directed in its mission it might work.

Oct 4, 2017 | Full Review…

Kevin (Probably) Saves the World isn't perfect, but as it waffles between natural charisma and a slightly forced concept, it's better than it could be.

Oct 4, 2017 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

The logline for this light drama ... suggests an offbeat show with potential, but it does not work well in execution.

Oct 25, 2017 | Full Review…

[Jason] Ritter and the rest of the cast are certainly likable; 'Kevin' tries to be heartfelt and somehow meaningful - but it just doesn't come together.

Oct 21, 2017 | Full Review…

There's a kind of celestial vagueness over the proceedings in which, like The Good Place, there's just supposed to be a universal ethical understanding of good and bad. it comes off as half-baked theology and television drama.

Oct 4, 2017 | Full Review…

The Touched by an Angel-esque setup is pretty hokey, and the show's tone is a bit scattered between sweet drama and sci-fi thriller, but ultra-charming actors put this one over.

Oct 4, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's a show that, while serious at times, also had a lot of humor. I may not have been bursting out laughing, but I had a smile on my face throughout the hour.

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

Quibbles about the premise aside, Ritter makes and sells this show. He balances the pathos and the comedy. In lesser hands, this hour just would not be appealing.

    I love this show I can't believe they cancel it. There is nothing clean and funny to watch with your young kids on T.V anymore That's why we Stream all our TV shows and movies I hope Netflix or hulu picks this show up so there is another show that we can watch with our children. This is one of the shows we did watch on Hulu with our son.
