The Sarah Silverman Program: Season 1 (2007)



Critic Consensus: While Silverman herself isn't the most likable sitcom character, that's also part of what makes this clever, outrageously offensive, bizarre, and relentlessly hilarious comedy tick.

Tv Season Info

Sarah Silverman stars in this irreverent comedy following the trials and tribulations of a self-absorbed slacker , her sister (played by real life sister Laura Silverman) and her gay neighbors (comedians Brian Posehn and Steve Agee). Musical farce and animated segments help fuel the show's playful absurdity.

Critic Reviews for The Sarah Silverman Program Season 1

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (12)

The Sarah Silverman Program isn't about anything but its own supposed daring and the hyperbolic smugness of its star.

Silverman's fans will find some joyously bent, politically incorrect amusement, including jokes about wheelchair athletes, the Holocaust, cancer kids and the psychological reverberations of female body hair.

Anyone who watches The Sarah Silverman Program surely is going straight to hell. It's way too late for this reviewer, who's already both laughed and cringed his way through the first two episodes of Comedy Central's diciest effort ever.

Love this strange concoction or hate it -- and I loved it -- you'll still find it hard to reduce to a simple description, especially when the occasional musical sequence pops up.

Silverman... liberally embroiders the truth, engineering exploits in which Silverman's biting, outrageous, and often disturbing humor can shine.

The Sarah Silverman Program fails to directly translate the insanity of Silverman's stand-up. You might as well drug a playful, charismatic chimp and put it in a straitjacket.

[Silverman's] TV show persona is selfish, insensitive and a jerk -- but also bizarre and funny, as she exemplifies all the worst traits of human behavior.

Although at first, it may not seem to be Comedy Central's new must-see sitcom, The Sarah Silverman Program shows great promise and should get better in the future as the cast and the writers get more comfortable with the format.

It's not funny enough. Furthermore, I find Silverman's character on the show grating and unlikable.

That shock-them-into-submission approach might work for a comedy film or album, but for an ongoing series, there has to be more going on.

Audience Reviews for The Sarah Silverman Program: Season 1

Sarah Silverman's Program stars a fictional version of Sarah Silverman who is an unemployed single Jewish woman in her late 30s living in an apartment funded by her sister, her gay neighbours and various characters have outrageous adventures. Season 1 was not that great until it got to the last episode.
