News & Interviews for The Weekly: Season 1

Critic Reviews for The Weekly Season 1

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

"The Weekly" may reach more viewers than does the daily news report, but it's a forbiddingly closed circuit standing in for a paper that brings its readers the world.

Jun 4, 2019 | Full Review…

The Weekly is less a raw, immersive VICE-style docuseries than a smug, hammy marketing tool.

Jun 3, 2019 | Full Review…

This is inarguably significant and meticulous work. But these many moves to repeatedly make us understand how real this news is feels like the wrong play. If anything, it serves to highlight and polarize the discourse.

Feb 25, 2020 | Full Review…

Smart, emotional news show digs into hot topics.

Jun 11, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The Weekly has tremendous potential... But the people calling the shots for the show need to decide whether they are going to celebrate journalism and the role it plays in democracy first and foremost -- or mostly just promote the Times.

Jun 7, 2019 | Full Review…

The Weekly is slickly produced and takes pains to walk the viewer through the shoe-leather reporting process with clever visuals and innovative editing.

Jun 3, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Glossy and slick, it frankly looks like some of the reports on Vice.

Jun 3, 2019 | Full Review…

Its an unimaginable story told detailing physical and emotional abuse, and the owners' sordid past.

Audience Reviews for The Weekly: Season 1

  • Aug 13, 2019
    It's great to see a show that presents the in-depth investigative journalism that is a staple of the NY Times. It makes me think and brings attention to issues that would otherwise fail to catch my attention. I'm glad that someone is out there still trying to report the facts.
  • Jul 23, 2019
    A great New York Times docuseries about a variety of stories. They're interesting to watch and there's great analysis in just 25 minutes. It's informative and you get to see real journalism happen. It's relieving to see that good journalism still exists in the era of BuzzFeed, Breitbart, and Vice. As a New York Times subscriber, this is a pleasant addition to what is already quality journalism, and another way to support the Times.
