Critic Reviews for The Bernie Mac Show Season 1

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (13)

Bernie Mac is one funny fellow and The Bernie Mac Show is about as funny as it gets this stressful, strung-out TV season.

Jan 29, 2020 | Rating: A | Full Review…

The Bernie Mac Show is a snappy, daring series that bends family sitcoms in bracing, unsentimental directions.

Jan 29, 2020 | Full Review…

Series' creator, Larry Wilmore, has retained Mac's stand-up voice, but fleshed it out with strong supporting characters, especially the kids, who convey their rough history without falling into ghetto stereotypes.

Jan 29, 2020 | Full Review…

Bernie has a lot to learn from the kids, and the opening episodes indicate it'll be a pleasure, and a joy, watching him learn it.

Jan 29, 2020 | Full Review…

It's not the funniest show I've ever seen, but it could get there. And I besides, I laughed out loud. That's a good and a rare thing in these biblical times we're living through.

Jan 29, 2020 | Full Review…

Stylishly produced, this show is a rollicking good time.

Jan 8, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

It is a family sitcom that is smart, clever, irreverent and funny.

Jan 29, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

The Bernie Mac Show is the smartest, most appealing new half-hour of the season. Which it is, and then some.

Jan 29, 2020 | Full Review…

Move over, Homer Simpson and Malcolm's mom. Bernie Mac is here.

Jan 29, 2020 | Full Review…

Mac translates his stand-up act (and his life) into a rather unusual - and quite amusing - family sitcom.

Jan 29, 2020 | Full Review…

Some of the humor here won't go down well in every home. But if you stick with the show through episode two, you'll see it's about the gap between Bernie's defiantly unsentimental attitude and the reality of his new role as a surrogate parent.

Jan 29, 2020 | Full Review…

Family sitcom with grouchy, lovable dad is funny, creative.

Jan 29, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
