Critic Reviews for Running Wilde: Season 1

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (18)

While the show isn't must-see TV, it isn't must-change-the-channel either.

There's not a whiff of actual life here, no grounding character. There's just frantic, false and tiresome.

Instead of a sparkling gem, Running Wilde is a rusty lug nut.

September 21, 2010 | Full Review…

Running Wilde gets off to an unpromising start by creating a complicated, tortured premise that many labored minutes later delivers us to a simple rom-com.

September 21, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Wilde completes a one-hour, laugh track-free, absurdist block that gives Fox its best chance at comedy success since The Bernie Mac Show and Malcolm in the Middle.

"Running Wilde," is a sitcom that you want to like more than you actually do, unfortunately.
