Critic Reviews for The Conners Season 2

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

It seems the show has returned to its roots as an exploration of the challenges facing a working-class family that mostly avoids partisanship and values diversity. The humor is stilted and awkward at times, but its emotional core remains.

Nov 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Altogether, these staples produce little flavor; maybe it's the lack of a shadow to emerge from, but "Preemies, Weed And Infidelity" is rarely ever more than just fine.

Sep 25, 2019 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

It's a stellar move that really allows these characters to expand their emotional depths a little bit further.

Sep 25, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

"The Conners" returns to remind us what primetime used to be. Producers Bruce Helford, Bruce Rasmussen, and Dave Caplan keep the "Roseanne" 90's format intact while still updating it for new viewers.

Sep 26, 2019 | Full Review…

This season premiere was far from perfect, but it did what I expect of the show, it made me laugh out loud, shake my head, and sometimes yell at the screen.

Sep 25, 2019 | Rating: 4.0/5.0 | Full Review…

It's got a strong cast... with Laurie Metcalf and John Goodman leading the way.

The Conners finally feels like the modern day Roseanne we've been waiting for.

    Once again weather this show is the funniest show on the telly wheather it is the most amazing piece of writing on the planet the best acting ever it doesn't count you fired its star and it's loyalty that keeps people watching a show and clearly people stopped watching in their millions in fact 25 million people stopped watching

    Trash. No Roseanne, no show.
  • Sep 03, 2020
    I think a lot of people rate this low because Roseanne was written out. I think the show still is funny because the supporting actors carry the show as they did in the 80s and 90s. Goodman and Metcalf carry their still funny interaction while the children and grandmother snip back and forth at each other. The first season was to test the waters I believe, but the second season was great. Every show had the same punch humor of the 90s without the leading star. I always thought the original show was better with the supporting cast rather than with Roseanne. I am glad they kept this on the air. Rate this for the comedic interaction and storytelling, not for what they did to Roseanne.

    First season was weird without Roseanne and a little forced. The second has been great. Everything that made the original great is firing again. So happy we're getting a third season.

    They did it without Rosanne. It still funny and well written.
  • May 05, 2020
    Basically running on fumes & desperate to stay relevant
  • Apr 28, 2020
    I don't like the new characters at all!
  • Mar 26, 2020
    different show but still witty. Roseanne was excellent until the last 2 years when the show got crazy as her, but this is still good.
  • Feb 27, 2020
    Really, really bad. Goodman should have left with Rosanne, he is a good actor. What's he doing there anyway?
  • Feb 25, 2020
    i love this show it makes me laugh so much I wish it were on for an hour :)
