Critic Reviews for Worst Week Season 1

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (13)

It won't insult your intelligence, and it has a completely likable lead actor in Kyle Bornheimer; but "Worst Week" is nevertheless completely predictable and unambitious.

Nov 14, 2019 | Full Review…

"Worst Week" may not be the worst new show of this scrawny fall season. But whoever wants that title is going to have to pry it from the predictable, contrived fingers of this numbing exercise in the obvious.

Nov 14, 2019 | Full Review…

Still, the "Worst Week" pilot did something that rarely happens with American remakes of Britcoms: it made me laugh, several times.

Nov 14, 2019 | Full Review…

By the second episode, there are signs that the premise may not sustain for long (the title itself gives it only a week), but it still shows that a good pratfall is the universal language.

Nov 14, 2019 | Full Review…

And for all the cleverness of its compound disasters, the key to Worst Week is the good-guy appeal of its soon-to-be star, Kyle Bornheimer.

Nov 14, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

But it's all handled very well. The show moves fast without seeming to rush you. The timing, on the part of actors and editors alike, is excellent -- both Bornheimer and Smith are good physical comedians.

Nov 14, 2019 | Full Review…

It's too soon to declare "Worst Week" the fall's best new sitcom, but if the show's writers can find a way to sustain its seemingly unsustainable premise, it may overcome all doubts. It's certainly off to a strong start.

Nov 14, 2019 | Full Review…

There is still potential in Worst Week. It's a good cast and production team, and the idea itself seems to be fertile comic ground.

Nov 14, 2019 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

"Worst Week" isn't good, but it isn't terrible, either. Well, actually, it is at first.

Nov 14, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

But if copycats don't ruffle your feathers, this show offers plenty to chuckle over.

Nov 14, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

From the time we first meet Sam (Kyle Bornheimer), the laughs come fast and furious.

Nov 14, 2019 | Full Review…

What keeps Worst Week from being little more than a cheap, one-joke knock-off of Meet the Parents is its cast, particularly the men.
