Season 1
Men at Work

Critics Consensus

Lack of humor and mildly unlikable characters make Men at Work an exercise in how to make a generic sitcom.

It's a gamy live-audience howler, with overt line readings and sledgehammer timing.

We get that it's tough for people in their 20s as they work out dating and relationships. But no tougher than it is for the rest of us who have to watch sitcoms about it.

You might not want to have a TV relationship with these guys They're just not much fun on any level.

This men's magazine-set guy comedy is about as funny as you'd imagine any TBS series not named Cougar Town to be: which is to say, not very.

Men at Work is mostly an unfunny, uninteresting look at four work buddies.

May 24, 2012 | Full Review…

It's just too depressing to watch them try to tickle the laugh track by talking junk about their junk.

May 24, 2012 | Full Review…

None of Men at Work is funny, but the greater sin is how uninspired it feels.

May 24, 2012 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

It's so much of a big, forgettable, innocuous shrug, it's not even worth any actual vitriol.

May 24, 2012 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

It's as if everyone behind Men at Work missed a recent evolution in TV comedy.

May 24, 2012 | Full Review…

The pilot provides scant incentive to invest in a weekly subscription.

Audience Reviews for Men at Work: Season 1

  • Aug 21, 2018
    Our entire family still thinks this is the funniest sitcoms, with a cast that gels and has great chemistry. We just re-watched all three seasons and it still works. Writing and delivery was on point right until the end.
