Critic Reviews for The Middle Season 4

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

It doesn't attract the ratings and awards attention of Modern Family, but ABC's The Middle continues to carve out a comfortable place for itself amidst the... um, middle ground of the network's line-up.

Feb 26, 2014 | Full Review…

The Middle is on as solid footing as it's ever been.

Sep 26, 2012 | Full Review…

There's an admirable simplicity to how this plot works itself out.

Sep 17, 2013 | Rating: A | Full Review…

The real key to the show's success is focusing on the interaction between the core members of the cast.

Audience Reviews for The Middle: Season 4

  • Apr 12, 2014
    The fourth season of ABC's The Middle continues to offer smart writing and funny insight into the life of most middle class families, as well as having a lot of heart and sentimentality to it. The only problem is that at times, it's not funny enough.
