Critic Consensus: Splitting Up Together tries to make light of divorce, but its commitment to genre tropes keeps it from being very fun or funny, despite the always charming Jenna Fischer's best efforts.

News & Interviews for Splitting Up Together: Season 1
ABC has far more family-driven sitcoms than any of its rivals. Splitting Up Together shows that the network is still finding new ways to make them work just fine.
Oh, the romantic comedy series. Such a vexing format. When did this work? Does it ever?
...the attractive leads... argue with irritating regularity. They fell out of love, and the sitcom feels like a long, forced push to get them back together.
This is what happens when you try to adapt something remotely edgy for a network (ABC in the US) and timeslot that requires not only bleeping out the F-word put pixelating the swearee's mouth when they say it.
Of course, each show needs to find its niche, but there are some shows that will make you want more and Splitting Up Together isn't one of these shows yet as it still hasn't found its footing.
