Critic Consensus: Mistresses offers fleeting moments of trashy fun, but it's mostly a soapy melodrama that's lacking a strong narrative pull.

Critic Reviews for Mistresses: Season 1

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (10)

Do you think what TV really needs is more cheesy, sleazy melodrama with lots of soft-core sex scenes? Then welcome Mistresses.

June 3, 2013 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Mistresses is a fair bit better than a sack of s. Sometimes it even gives off a pleasant Desperate Housewives fragrance.

Top Critic

Mistresses is the kind of heated-up summertime soap opera that could become a popular guilty pleasure.

June 2, 2013 | Full Review…

This mopey melodrama about four women wrestling with infidelities in their relationships should have stayed on the shelf.

July 2, 2018 | Full Review…

Mistresses is the perfect ride for a long, hot summer.

June 3, 2013 | Rating: 4.3/5 | Full Review…

Is it smart? No. But then, who wants to think too much about a show focused on screwing around? Relax, pour a drink, and be glad you're not paying to watch.
