April 19, 2017
Comics struggle for success in this true-to-life series.

Yeah, it's amusing, but in a forgettable sort of way. Too much about it resembles too many other shows.

Later episodes, as personal business between the leads come into play, and wholly fictional characters arrive, do perk up.
March 29, 2017
Beyond correctly identifying Hollywood's core insecurity and layers of inferiority complexes, Nobodies isn't committed to being satire or parody, nor is it especially insightful.

Dorf, Davidson, and Ramras aren't interested in getting particularly deep. They are looking to provoke bigger laughs and more visceral cringes. And, for a few nobodies, they do a pretty good job.

Nobodies is OK. Some of it is quite funny. And some of it really isn't.
March 28, 2017
TV Land's latest offering joins a small-screen mini-boom in what could be called the showbiz cringe comedy: a sort of scrappy, Louis C.K.-style backlot vrit.

But even though Nobodies works from a familiar playbook and, like its bumbling heroes, can try a little too hard to ingratiate itself, it's still fun, zippy, and Seinfeldian in its ability to braid together plot based on various humiliations.

It's hard to envision Nobodies sustaining itself for even one season, let alone another one. The bumbling efforts to make Mr. First Lady a fame-and-fortune feature film already seem played out after just the first few episodes.

Nobodies is funny, and in a few specific details, it's quite original. In others, it does unfortunately fit a template that seems difficult to escape in the current cutting-edge comedy scene - self-conscious but deliberate navel-gazing.

The series could live on its ample supply of good jokes alone, if only the nobodies were properly elevated in a story meant to be about them.
