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.

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.

February 1, 2007 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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.
