Splitting Up Together: Season 1 (2018)




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.

Tv Season Info

Lena (Jenna Fischer) and Martin (Oliver Hudson) are a couple going through a divorce. Their financial situation, however, prevents them from completely splitting their household. So, they come up with a supposedly amicable solution -- for one week, one takes on the parent role, while the other lives a responsibility-free life as a single. At the end of the week, they switch roles. With this arrangement, though, they learn to become better parents and better partners, and they reignite their attraction for each other. But they realize the complicated status of their relationship confuses their kids, their friends, and their new significant others.

Critic Reviews for Splitting Up Together: Season 1

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (9)

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.

April 2, 2018 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

Consider it conscious uncoupling for the somewhat financially strapped set.
