Critic Reviews for The Real O'Neals Season 2

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

In many ways, The Real O'Neals is Tuesday's version of Modern Family - a tad more real, perhaps, but just as funny.

Nov 28, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Last year's finale seemed to isolate the O'Neals as a group, but season two sees them branching out in a way that hints at promising secondary characters and relationships outside of the family.

Oct 12, 2016 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Both Kenny and his family have to learn to accept him the way he is, and thanks to The Real O'Neals' smart course corrections and Galvin's excellent comic timing, that story has really become something special.

    Season 2 was a big improvement, although the characters are still insufferable, there were some good oneliners.

    Was my favorite show. ABC was short sighted in cancelling The Real O'Neals. It was great having a show showing lgbt youths in a straight comedy. They had something special with the cast and the crew.

    This show sucks. Its the generic typical Hollywood sitcom and nothing stands out but making fun of the political right I would say which is ohh so brave. Watched 3 episodes and just rolled my eyes
