The Conners: Season 1 (2018)

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: The Conners offers the comforts of its source show, but more focus on the family's ever-evolving dynamics adds a welcome layer of working-class empathy without losing any of the laughs.

Critic Reviews for The Conners Season 1

All Critics (53) | Top Critics (25)

It was noble to keep the show going for the unblemished cast and crew, but the resulting show doesn't feel right.

Nov 26, 2018 | Full Review…

By and large, the pilot episode had the feel of a throwback family sitcom, and it kept the salty edge to the interpersonal dynamics that always set Roseanne apart.

Oct 18, 2018 | Full Review…

Overt politics becomes secondary to character.

It's a sad irony that by stocking the show with great performers like Gilbert and Goodman, Roseanne Barr built a sitcom machine that could survive her departure. Goodman in particular gets a little more room to shine as Dan Conner.

The working-class sitcom leans more middle-of-the-road than its predecessor, and while that may help pull viewers from both sides of the aisle, it also makes it kind of boring. Now, The Conners looks just like every other run-of-the-mill sitcom on TV.

Oct 17, 2018 | Full Review…

There's certainly enough story with these characters to make a terrific show. But it needs to be funnier, or it won't survive as a comedy.

What remains is the often-humorous take on blue-collar family life that fans will remember from the early years of the show.

Jan 29, 2019 | Full Review…

The Conners is still quite watchable, if for no reason than the strong talent of Goodman, Metcalf and Gilbert as the acerbic heir to her mother Darlene.

Dec 17, 2018 | Full Review…

It's like I said: fine. It exists perfectly well without all the baggage of waiting for Barr...

Dec 10, 2018 | Full Review…

While it's specious to frame The Conners as the show most representative of working class America, it's certainly a show about working-class America, and a well-made one.
