Season 1
LA to Vegas

Critics Consensus

Refreshingly lewd humor and funny, relatable characters are crammed into LA to Vegas alongside pacing problems and a dearth of punchlines, leaving this sitcom's high-flying potential stuck in an amiable holding pattern.

The few remnant shards do hint at something that was very tired and very unfunny. I believe the shards are accurate.

There's more than enough here to justify watching.

A strikingly unfunny piece of television.

Dec 29, 2017 | Full Review…

LA to Vegas is shockingly bad. Not the kind of show you should watch just to see how awful it is, but definitely a show so bad that someone at Fox should be fired over it.

Jan 2, 2018 | Full Review…

The three episodes sent to critics for review are funny, and much of the humor is based on what I hope are unlikely situations on an actual airliner.

Jan 2, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Rude jokes, lovable characters on zesty airline comedy.

Jan 9, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

... a largely unfunny exercise populated by one-dimensional characters.

Jan 4, 2018 | Full Review…

LA to Vegas delivers an honestly funny and promising comedy. The series effectively gives stock workplace comedy scenarios a fresh spin by successfully turning the cramped confines of a commercial jetliner into a place you actually want to spend time in.

Jan 3, 2018 | Full Review…

LA To Vegas has the potential to be the season's best new comedy thanks to smart writing and a glowing cast.

Jan 2, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

With LA to Vegas, it's time for McDermott to go the Nielsen/Lowe route(*), and to do it shockingly well.

Jan 2, 2018 | Full Review…

Comedies on an airplane can be very funny (Surely you've seen Airplane!; Yes, I have, and don't call me Shirley), but this isn't one of them.

    This show is hilarious. Hope someone picks this show up, since FOX is too stupid to realize what they have.
