Critic Reviews for Single Parents Season 1

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (6)

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.

Lively, sometimes-cheesy sitcom has some sexy stuff.

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?

Sep 24, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

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.

Sep 26, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

Sep 26, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

Sep 24, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

    Love it! Please renew this show.

    I 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.

    One of the most creative shows I���ve ever watched. It�������s hilarious, and fun to look forward to and watch with my family.

    If 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!

    This 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.
  • Feb 28, 2019
    It's an amazing show...I honestly recommend it to anyone who's looking for something to watch
  • Feb 23, 2019
    The show is okay, but the little boy who plays Rory makes me wanna vomit. If they wanted Poppy to have a girl, they should have cast a girl. I'm over this show!

    Funny lighthearted comedy. All single parents should be on a grid with a group of friends like this
