Critic Consensus: Romantically Challenged suffers from both a shopworn premise and an outmoded approach to setting up its gags.

Critic Reviews for Romantically Challenged: Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (8)

Overall it felt like an example of the set-up/joke/set-up/joke style that's deservedly close to extinction.

You can dress up a rat and set it loose in prime time, but it will always only squeak.

The most ill-defined character in the new show is, unfortunately, the one played by its star, Alyssa Milano.

Finding romance again is challenging, but so is this comedy's half-baked premise.

April 19, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Romantically Challenged feels like it was beamed in from the mid-'90s, a leftover hammock show that would have filled time on NBC's Thursday night schedule while viewers waited for Friends or Seinfeld to come on.

Romantically Challenged as a whole adds up to less than the sum of its parts.
