Work It: Season 1 (2012)


Critic Consensus: Work It is offensive not simply because it traffics in absurd and outmoded stereotypes, but because it brings nothing fresh or funny to the workplace comedy.

Critic Reviews for Work It Season 1

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (15)

[Work It is] a retrograde shame-spiral of a series that hates women nearly as much as its viewers will hate themselves. But this detestable disasterpiece doesn't even have the courtesy to be interesting in its inanity.

Early word-of-mouth has it that ABC's new Work It isn't very good. Early word-of-mouth is right.

In addition to ethnic stereotyping there are cheap, lazily constructed jokes about women taking over the workforce resulting in a "mancession,'' the apparent indignity of a man grocery shopping for his family.

Work It is just about as subtle as you'd expect - a knuckle-dragging sitcom that parlays racial and gender stereotypes about as adroitly as a chimp parlays Chekhov.

Work It may prompt a grin or two with its initial sight gags. That's not nearly enough to hold this thing together, though. Toot toot tootsie goodbye.

ABC, you can do better than this drivel you call Work It.

Cross-dressing has never seemed less funny.

Jan 3, 2012 | Full Review…

Some like it hot, but more like it funny. By either or any standard, ABC's atrocious Work It fails miserably.

Jan 3, 2012 | Full Review…

When you add to that a string of obvious, unfunny cross-dressing jokes and a set of female characters that are barely even one-dimensional, the premise pretty much collapses entirely.

Work It doesn't work. It's not only not funny, but it's also not original.
