More charming than clever, Miracle Workers functions as a palatable showcase of Daniel Radcliffe and Steve Buscemi's quirky star power.

The show stars Daniel Radcliffe, Steve Buscemi, Geraldine Viswanathan and Karan Soni. Radcliffe plays Craig, a low-level angel responsible for handling all of humanity's prayers, and Steve Buscemi plays Craig's boss God, who has pretty much checked out and is ready to move on to his next project.

Karan Soni plays Sanjay, God's right-hand man.

Critic Reviews for Miracle Workers Season 1

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (18)

The concept never comes together even with a talented cast and the resulting show is an unfunny comedy that's as dour as it is underwhelming.

Full of grace it's not.

The laughs aren't plentiful enough, the ideas aren't exciting enough, and the story isn't gripping enough.

A show that you keep waiting to click into gear, to get funnier, smarter, more enjoyable.

Feb 11, 2019 | Full Review…

After sitting through almost four hours of "Miracle Workers"...you may come to the same conclusion I did. This joke runs long and eventually dry, too. One season is more than enough.

Despite the epic premise, this was essentially an amusingly oddball workplace comedy. It showcased the quirky comedic talents of both Radcliffe and Buscemi, who were excellent.

A classic comedy in all the sense of the word, but it does leave you with a sense that there could be more to it. [Full Review in Spanish]

Another reason why you should not miss this program is the somewhat ironic representation of what is believed to happen in heaven. [Full review in Spanish]

Its saving grace is the excellent Buscemi, who wonderfully conveys the subtlest shades of irritation, idiocy, shallowness and sloth.

[Simon Rich's] bolstered by a terrific cast that includes an incredibly game Daniel Radcliffe, who finds laughs even in lines that aren't explicitly jokes.

Feb 28, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

TBS' new limited series Miracle Workers presents us with massive problems, but it suggests that we can do our part to make it better if we focus on the little things.

Feb 27, 2019 | Full Review…

Mild existential comedy is fun and light, has room to grow.

Audience Reviews for Miracle Workers: Season 1

    funny...inventive...Buscemi is great..the Lazy Susan's restaurant stuff just gets better and better. I'm willing to bet most bad reviews are from people who can't take a joke about Jesus...for those people, here's an idea, don't watch a comedy that has a character named God in it!
  • Aug 29, 2020
    Both seasons are great! I wished they had continued the story from season one, so that we could see more character development, but it is still humorous. It is a fun show, and all of the actors do a great job. I love Steve Buscemi in both seasons.
  • Jul 30, 2020
    I gave it chance but ITS NOT FUNNY! I didn't laugh once! I watched 1st and 2nd episode thinking it might warm up a bit! Good concept potentially funny but NOT! As fan of Big Bang Theory , South Park , Friends and Family Guy, I like a giggle! This was pants! Don't waste ur time! It missed the mark!
  • May 14, 2020
    as a fan of Daniel Radcliffe I really have to like It. miracle workers mixers comedy with sort of team work feel good thing. It works I am going to watch season two that will be good.
  • May 11, 2020
    Poor story, poor cast, poor humor. Why tell something that was already told so many times?
  • Mar 15, 2020
    It was so funny I was in tears. Clever with a message and great cast! My new favorite show!!!
  • Feb 12, 2020
    The acting was great. The show felt a little bit like Beatlejuice meets Good Omens. The sets and costumes were not bad, they weren't spectacular, but I don't think they were supposed to be, so good job there. The larger story felt a bit contrived, though it had some nice smaller elements (I liked when he visited his family.)
  • Feb 02, 2020
    Overall there where some very funny moments. The cast is great. Not sure about the mean spiritedness of God in the show. I am definitely a fan and will be watching season 2!
  • Jan 29, 2020
    The premise of the show seems funny but the dialogue is filled with junior-high profanity leaving it so offensive it's hard to appreciate any of the story line. We often feel sorry for the poor actors wanting to work so badly they lower their moral standards to accommodate the immature producers and writers. I think what these producers do not get is that television and movies are used as an escape from what is often a cruel and challenging life, not a place to experience verbal abuse and crass behavior. – The Maxwell Family, Greenville, SC

    It shocks me that anyone found a laugh out of this abysmally written show.
