Bob Patterson: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Bob Patterson: Season 1 (2001)



Critic Consensus: Jason Alexander's talent for making narcissists endearing is ill-served in Bob Patterson, a surly and unfunny sitcom about a motivational guru that lacks much motivation.

Tv Season Info

'Seinfeld' alum Jason Alexander starred in this sitcom about 'America's No. 3 self-help guru.' Bob Patterson couldn't help himself (that's the the show's central irony), and Jason Alexander didn't help his career with this dud. Chalk it up to 'the Seinfeld curse' (Michael Richards and Julia Louis-Dreyfuss tanked in their series, too), or chalk it up to an unworkable concept, but it lasted less than two months.

Critic Reviews for Bob Patterson: Season 1

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (11)

Where is Seinfeld main muse Larry David when you need him? Alexander was funnier as a guest on David's laugh-filled new show (HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm) than he is on his own.

The Seinfeld stars were evidently so spoiled with first-rate scripts during a long run that they forgot how to spot stinkers.

This has to be the worst show of the season. Seinfeld alumnus Jason Alexander has never been less amusing.

March 19, 2020 | Full Review…

Bob Patterson is remarkably unfunny and embarrassingly crude.

March 3, 2020 | Full Review…

When early episodes of any series depend on tacky guest stars for yuks, something's clearly not working.

March 3, 2020 | Full Review…

The simple fact that TV critics label a show "troubled" isn't going to kill it. But being as bad as Bob Patterson is will be its death warrant.
