Critic Reviews for The Job Season 1

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4)

From smart hip script to slick comedy acting -- good job on The Job.

Jan 8, 2020 | Full Review…

Shot on film with intentionally herky jerky camera work, "The Job" is surprisingly effective.

Jan 8, 2020 | Rating: C | Full Review…

"The Job," ABC's new sitcom produced, starring, written and overall done by Denis Leary, who may be the funniest man in town, is the funniest show since "I Love Lucy."

Jan 8, 2020 | Full Review…

"The Job" is "Bad Lieutenant" with a wink and with none of the rawness diluted. It is certainly the darkest comedy on TV and simultaneously the most hilarious.

Jan 8, 2020 | Full Review…

More than anything, The Job is about those cops' efforts to deal with and sometimes avoid their difficult "job." To that end, it deploys a strong ensemble cast.

Jan 8, 2020 | Full Review…

[A] comedy full of ranting that you're going to hear a lot of raving about.
