AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Though the sitcom elements of The Jack and Triumph Show restrict the overall quality of the humor, the dog-on-the-street sequences evoke enough belly laughs to make it howl-worthy.

Tv Season Info

In The Jack and Triumph Show - Jack (McBrayer) is a former child star of a popular Lassie-type series that ran in the '80s and '90s. After it was cancelled, his crude but beloved co-star (Triumph) spiraled into decadence and got Jack in trouble with him. Fifteen years later, with Jack finally self-sufficient, happy, and away from show business, Triumph finds his way back into Jack's life. -- (C) Adult Swim

Critic Reviews for The Jack and Triumph Show: Season One

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

Is it fair for a comedy to mock others for milking an old act when the comedy itself is milking an old act? Probably not, but it can be funny.

Weirdly, the show is primarily a scripted, multi-camera sitcom, which is substantially less funny than Triumph's usual comedy routine.

Smigel's ad-lib style is no less sharp or scathing in this show, but the sitcom format really constricts how much of it he can do since most of the show is scripted.

February 26, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

As always Triumph is too absurd of a concept to ever feel truly mean-spirited, and the deeply likable Squibb and McBrayer help smooth out those edges even more.

February 25, 2015 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

The Jack and Triumph Show is more successful when it hews closer to the old sketches on Late Night With Conan O'Brien.

February 25, 2015 | Full Review…

The show's most memorable moments occur when Triumph veers from the script and ventures into the real world, much like he first did on Late Night with Conan O'Brien almost two decades ago.
