Critic Consensus: The title is one of the best jokes of Schitt's Creek, but performances from Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara give the writing a comedic boost.

News & Interviews for Schitt's Creek: Season 1
They could use some sharper instruments, though, to deliver beyond a daring title that calls for more than just passing gas.
It's a no-frills production with modest, but pleasant rewards.
After a few episodes, viewers could stop expecting Schitt's Creek to have a point or a direction and thus could get a few chuckles out of it, but most viewers won't get past the first episode. It's too hard to watch a show float around without a paddle.
It hits a sweet spot of ensemble humor that happens to offer a satisfying answer to post-presidential election rhetorical grousing about what would happen if middle and bicoastal Americans really could get along.
It didn't make me laugh out loud. But it showed a glimmer of humour somewhere in this. If they can develop that and give some genuine personality to the horribly caricatured, spoilt rich characters - maybe, just maybe this will get better.
