Welcome to the Family: Season 1 (2013)

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: Welcome to the Family features okay characters and an interesting premise, but overall, the show comes across as more calculated and formulaic than entertaining.

Critic Reviews for Welcome to the Family Season 1

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (16)

It's the sort of soft-centered mush -- at once back-pattingly liberal and inoffensively conservative -- that seems like a Hollywood focus group's idea of what a potato-fed yokel in, I don't know, Chicago might want to watch.

How about a parade of stale stereotypes?

The best of the witty bunch is NBC's Welcome to the Family, which will probably raise some hackles with its light-hearted look at teenage pregnancy... But it's hard to stay mad at a show this waggish.

Welcome to the Family plays like some "inspired" notion of a "cross-cultural" "modern" "single-camera comedy," and no, those quotes aren't typos.

Welcome to the Family is a passable half-hour that fends for itself without a laugh track and manages to deliver a few un-goosed grins.

While Family has predictable moments, it has the potential to provide some pleasant surprises.

Funny sitcom glosses over reality of teen pregnancy.

Oct 1, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

There isn't one plausible moment in the pilot of a series that seems to be seeking the Hispanic audience and is about as much fun as a forced marriage.

Oct 14, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Welcome to the Family just needs a little spark to go from an OK comedy to a really good one.

Oct 10, 2013 | Full Review…

Welcome to the Family finds greater interest in watching its characters scream at each other than in trying to get them to operate as a family.
