Nikki Fre$h: Season 1 Reviews

April 6, 2020
Richie is clever, and yet the show's humor never finds a sharp sense of purpose. It falls just short of timely, a nagging delay in its topical references that kills a series aimed right at the zeitgeist.

If you watched the dearly departed Tina Fey sitcom Great News, you know that Richie's comedic talents are underrated and they are put to great use here as she tries to peddle "crystal granola."
April 6, 2020
Nicole Richie half-jokingly transforms into a musical artist making a trap album for "mostly moms and gays." Possibly a masterwork?
April 6, 2020
The videos are the best part of the whole affair... The rest of Nikki Fre$h is rote and unfunny, with gags like Richie and her "assistant" focus-testing Crystal Granola and leafy tampons at an upscale grocery store landing with a resounding thud.

As first demonstrated in her aughts reality show with Paris Hilton, The Simple Life, [Nicole] Richie is a scamp with a great deadpan.
April 6, 2020
Richie is funny and the music videos that end each episode are good, but the "sketches" are oddly tedious.
April 6, 2020
A dreary effort that merely demonstrates just how long six minutes can seem when they're devoted to something this tedious.
April 6, 2020
Even when it feels like a relic from YouTube circa 2016 (we were so young then), a 6-minute shot of "Nikki Fre$h" feels like exactly the kind of silly entertainment that a platform like Quibi needs.
April 6, 2020
It's sort of a Tori Spelling show with better guest-stars, and every episode ends with a pretty solid music video.
