Critics Consensus

Even seriously funny comedian George Wendt is unable to prevent this poorly written sitcom from becoming a dud.

Critic Reviews for The George Wendt Show Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

David Regal's script misses out not only on taste but on humor.

On The George Wendt Show, Wendt looks uncomfortable and disgruntled, and well he should be. Nothing really works.

Overall the episode is down a few quarts. [George] Wendt needs the lubrication of a strong ensemble to really shine, and it does not seem to be there.

Jul 25, 2019 | Full Review…

While you can't judge a series entirely on one episode, this one appears about 10 gallons shy of a full tank.

Jul 25, 2019 | Full Review…

George and his dopey brother, Danny, have been sidetracked by plotlines about a gambling night at their old Catholic high school and a flume ride that forced the relocation of their father's remains. Not exactly fertile ground for comedy.

The George Wendt Show is no Frasier yet, but it does get off to a snappy little start as George and Dan [Coleman] return to their childhood church for a little gambling and some major guilt trips.

Jul 25, 2019 | Full Review…

Overall, there just isn't much to The George Wendt Show. Certainly not enough to keep viewers coming back week after week.

Jul 25, 2019 | Full Review…

The move for [George] Wendt after Cheers couldn't have been simpler -- a spinoff called Norm! to star America's favorite beer-swilling fat guy. Put it on right after Frasier and you'd be in business. But no, he had to go for this clunker.

Jul 25, 2019 | Full Review…

[George] Wendt is a fine third or fourth wheel in an ensemble sitcom, but he's nowhere up to the task of carrying one.

Jul 25, 2019 | Full Review…

Combine the running-on-empty humor with a woeful supporting cast, and you have a sitcom hitting on about two cylinders.
