Season 1
Normal, Ohio

Critics Consensus

John Goodman is an incredible character actor, but even he cannot save Normal Ohio from its terrible writing and reliance on offensive stereotypes.

Critic Reviews for Normal, Ohio Season 1

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (12)

Normal, Ohio will be either a half-hour to celebrate diversity or an excuse for another funeral about the depths morality has sunk to in the mass.

Well, if Michael Richards looks as if he's working way too hard, John Goodman gives the impression of someone nonchalantly sauntering through a mess he didn't make.

Sep 3, 2019 | Rating: D- | Full Review…

Mr. [John] Goodman tries to give the material an ironic gloss, but it soon becomes clear that irony and lead don't mix. They sink together.

Sep 3, 2019 | Full Review…

Maybe TV can stand another dysfunctional family, but it really doesn't need another dysfunctional show.

Sep 3, 2019 | Full Review…

It's nice that the show tries to be matter-of-fact about his homosexuality, but the drive to get beyond political correctness leads it too often into mockery.

Sep 3, 2019 | Full Review…

The cast is first rate, and deserves first-rate material.

Sep 3, 2019 | Full Review…

The show's stale comedy likely accounts for its very short life span.

Sep 3, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Normal, Ohio has its moments, but too often the show suffers from SKS - Sassy Kid Syndrome. The children of Butch's sister are the culprits.

Sep 3, 2019 | Full Review…

Will & Grace this show isn't. It's shrill and graceless, the actors screeching their lines at each other. Only [John] Goodman stands out -- in more ways than one.

Sep 3, 2019 | Full Review…

This new Fox sitcom is unbearable because it's loud, crude, obnoxious and pretty much without any redeeming value whatsoever.

Sep 3, 2019 | Full Review…

The series looks and sounds like a bad Norman Lear sitcom from the 1970s.

Sep 3, 2019 | Full Review…

[John] Goodman seems to instinctively know where the program's heart and focus should be. Too bad "Normal, Ohio's" writers, busy churning out the same ol' unfunny sitcom dross, are operating under a different notion.
