Critic Consensus: Intriguingly cynical, The Comeback unfortunately lacks the sharp insight and sympathetic characters needed to skewer showbiz conventions.

There's a feeling that the makers of The Comeback have been too busy making comedy TV to watch much reality TV, so they aren't that attuned to the genre.
The Comeback is a worthy new configuration - the side-splittingly sad sitcom.
I saw this show and came away impressed by its mordant humor and bitter truth.
The set, crew and cast members of 'Room and Bored' feel like a spoof of a hundred mindless sitcoms, and the backstage double-dealings provide some of The Comeback's best moments.
The Comeback is funny, not in a side-splitting, "ha-ha" kind of way but more of a slow-burning, "yep" kind of way that makes you wince because it's so painfully true.
