News & Interviews for Single Parents: Season 1
Single Parents is an ensemble, and one that should get better, whether it embraces the formula or breaks it.
Will's maturation, if it ever really comes to that, is the show's core objective. Otherwise the kids so far are stealing the show -- and this time it's a pleasure watching them do so.
Single Parents takes its cues from the network's other family comedies, such as black-ish, but the jokes are too sophomoric to come close to the brilliance and humor of that award-winning show or the Emmy-amassing Modern Family.
Single Parents feels like a comedy that goes for simple snark and believes it's a little more clever than it really is, but then had a bunch of network notes stuck to it about softening those right angles.
There's plenty of material there; hopefully, with a strong cast and writing team behind it, Single Parents can tap into it and find a specific groove all its own.
Seriously, whoever cast these little too-wise for their size moppets is a genius... the child actors own and deliver each line like well-seasoned comedy pros with masterful timing.
While the show doesn't exactly feel fresh, it does have heart and what feels like the bones of a show that could go bolder and nuttier if it gets a chance to find its way over a full season.
Genuinely funny network sitcoms are nearing extinction these days, so let's make sure this one sticks around to see Season 2, huh?
Audience Reviews for Single Parents: Season 1
Jun 24, 2020This is one of my favorite shows, it's such a comfort show and I just finished the series finale. I'm absolutely heartbroken, it was such a good show and didn't deserve to end so quickly, especially ending with such a cliffhanger. I'll admit, it's obviously not perfect, but I often find myself binging it again and again. It's a wonderful family show as well, something that's great for both parents and children. I'm really disappointed that ABC decided to chop it. It could've gone on for at least one more season. The show is amazing and it has a huge rewatchability factor, so I'm desperately hoping that Hulu or some other service steps up to save it. Every single person in the cast does an amazing job in their role, and while I can agree it is at times cheesy and artificial, overall the great moments of the show outweigh the lackluster ones. It's a definite watch for anyone of any age, and it's sad to see it go so soon.
Nov 15, 2019Doesn't really bring anything new to the table. Seems like Taran could do better then this with his abilities.
Oct 20, 2019I'm really trying to like the show. I really like the adult actors, but the biggest distraction is Rory.. I fast forward all of his scenes.
May 09, 2019Really innovative and funny! Can't wait for Season 2.
May 07, 2019so funny and great acting! hope it gets renewed
Apr 19, 2019Love it! Please renew this show.
Apr 11, 2019I have a feeling this show will be cancelled after two seasons. Why? They picked a great cast and a great premise and gave them crap writing. This show doesn't have relaywable storylines or character arcs. It's like eating pudding. Filler.
Mar 31, 2019One of the most creative shows Iï¿½Â?Â?ve ever watched. Itï¿½Â?Â?ï¿½Â?ï¿½Â?s hilarious, and fun to look forward to and watch with my family.
Mar 14, 2019If you haven't watched Single Parents, I absolutely suggest that you do. Not only is the show hilarious, but every single episode the kids steal the show. Everyone on the show has wonderful chemistry and every punchline hits harder than the one before. Brad Garrett as Douglas is quite literally one of the best castings on ABC to date, not to mention long time game player Taran Killam finally having his own show is more than overdue! Personally I find this show to be an absolute national treasure and I'm praying like never before that they renew it for another season. This cast deserves it!
Feb 28, 2019This is the only show I look forward to watching every week! The cast is amazingly balanced and the kids are adorable without being overly pretentious or annoying.
