Critic Consensus: The Jim Gaffigan Show benefits from an abundantly likable star in a setting that, albeit familiar, adds a new, natural energy to the standard struggling-dad-sitcom genre.

I can't remember laughing out loud so consistently at a situation comedy maybe, um, ever.

The Jim Gaffigan Show showcases its star at his exasperated best, putting his now well-honed spin on the befuddled dad genre from which many a sitcom has supped.

Jim Gaffigan doesn't seem to be acting at all. That may sound easy, but not all comedians playing themselves have pulled it off.

Consider this the anti-Louie.

Gaffigan exudes a relaxed, unpretentious air, no doubt helped by the dozens of TV shows and films on which he's appeared. But the dopey-guy persona he's crafted in his stand-up doesn't completely translate to a sitcom.

The Jim Gaffigan Show isn't the next Louie or Seinfeld, but it's low-key and charming, with a good balance of home life (the kids are truly adorable) and work.

Funnier than any of the recent CBS comedies - but also darker, too, which may be why CBS passed - The Jim Gaffigan Show offers an ideal showcase for its titular star.

[Gaffigan's] show's definitely a winner.

Kneecapped by a desperation for inoffensiveness and broadly-written characters, there is quite literally nothing residing within the homogeneous world of The Jim Gaffigan Show that you haven't already seen before from a Jim, a Raymond, or a Tim.

He tweaks both his nice-guy image and the family-sitcom formula just enough to make his show feel new - yet he retains the sense of familiarity that beckons viewers and keeps them watching.
