Malibu Country: Season 1 (2012 - 2013)


Critic Consensus: Reba McEntire and Lily Tomlin are fun to watch, but they don't have much to work with in Malibu Country, a largely generic fish-out-of-water sitcom.

Critic Reviews for Malibu Country Season 1

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (16)

Malibu Country is full of likable characters and charming actors. The problem is that they're given nothing to do. Nothing interesting, anyway.

Despite the animated efforts of these actors, all these characters appear to have been pulled from some cobwebbed storage room at TVLand

The show's performances and punchlines mostly fall flat.

McEntire's fans will probably enjoy seeing her in anything, but it would be nice for her to get a sitcom that's as good as she gives.

Saucy Reba and a tart-tongued Tomlin are for the most part a sad turn of events in Malibu Country.

Malibu Country is nothing great. But its studio-shot sitcom style sure suits Reba.

I'd hoped a show on a bigger network that paired McEntire and Tomlin might be even better. No such luck.

The similarity to McEntire's old series makes for an uncanny vibe in the new one, not to mention an obvious retreading.

Nov 10, 2012 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

If you like exaggerated Southern accents, cookie-cutter comedy puns, and single mom/teenager melodramatics, all laced with a painful laugh track, Malibu Country is for you.

Nov 10, 2012 | Rating: 2/10 | Full Review…

It feels much longer than its 22 minutes and it's just sad to watch someone as talented as Lily Tomlin caught up in this mess.
