News & Interviews for Rel: Season 1
"Rel" may not have to grow to be a hit, but at least there's a hint of where it could go if it truly wants to set itself apart.
Diversity in prime-time is both laudable and necessary. But when this is the end result, it's better left undone. C'mon, Fox, do better. Do much, much better than this.
"Rel" feels like it's gone through the dreaded Network Comedy Blender rendering it "networkized," which means the setups are obvious, the payoffs conspicuous.
This feels like a show given too many notes, and the laughs were left somewhere in rewrites.
If Rel is short on surprises it does not lack charm, and is funny in waves. It's good-natured, a little whimsical and not at all cynical.
Divorced dad rebuilds life in not-quite-funny enough show.
In all, it's easy to see why FOX would hand Rel its post double-header slot, as the new sitcom delivers an impressive pilot... and manages to introduce a stellar supporting cast that makes this an entertaining bright spot in the network's fall lineup.
As much good will as Lil Red Howery has engendered in his standup and on "The Carmichaels" and in "Get Out," his new sitcom about a man whose wife left him for his barber is rather flat.
Rel's pretty good at delivering laughs, but his pathos is, well, pathetic.
Audience Reviews for Rel: Season 1
Jan 13, 2019Contrived and formulaic. Humor is predictable and misses, badly.
Oct 30, 2018After seeing the previews of this show, it drew me in to actually add this on my to-watch list. I don't watch too many comedy shows, but Rel caught my attention. The first few episodes were ok. Had some great laughs in between. I really want to see more in the show such as maybe a new love interest or the kids more often.
Oct 22, 2018This show in it's first season has touched on some serious topics while providing just enough humor to soften the blow. I'm not sure if the world is ready for the truth, but I love it !!!
Oct 21, 2018#REL I love the show
Oct 19, 2018This show was setup to fail. Rel was a solid stand up, but not a great actor. I feel the networks can walk away from this show and say "We gave the black show a try and it didn't work". The cast has zero chemistry and the comedy seemed forced and not very funny!
Oct 16, 2018'Rel' My Seem Generic And Ordinary, But All Trains Start Slow Before They Reach Their Destinations. (Plus I like watching that dyke looking bitch on their, damn she look good) Lol)
Oct 07, 2018Solid new sitcom. Embraces classic sitcom elements but is also unique. Great cast. Worth watching.
Oct 02, 2018i liked it a bunch! felt like an updated version of late 70s sitcomes. i'm excited to watch it progress.
Oct 01, 2018The most standard sitcom jokes you'll ever hear. It feels like it was written for the 70s.
Oct 01, 2018This show is a throwback to sitcoms like Good Times and What's Happening? Uplifting with a whole lot of tough love. Black folk don't coddle their loved ones. It's a tough old world and the sooner you can laugh about it the better off you'll be. With suicide rates far lower than whites maybe they're on to something. Sure it can be hokay at times, but it's also damned funny. And to that clueless reviewer who accused Fox of making a show Just for black folks? So what!? They don't do they for us? Besides, I'm white and I really enjoy it.
