AUDIENCE SCORE

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 (48) | Top Critics (22)

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.

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.

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.

The indignities and gallows humor remain. That should be enough to sustain The Conners.
