Tv Season Info

Failed sitcom about--where have we seen this before?--a widower trying to raise three sons, aided by his somewhat odd live-in dad. Danny Jacobson (`Mad About You') was one of the series creators.

Critic Reviews for Davis Rules: Season 1

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

Let's just hope they find better writers. The only funny thing about Davis Rules was Winters' performance -- and we know he wasn't working from the script.

June 7, 2019 | Full Review…

Davis Rules is the type of show that could flounder about with no visible direction or it could jell into a tight, funny, well-done comedy. Though the point spread is close, smart money is moving toward floundering.

The part gives Winters plenty of latitude for ad-libs, and his trademark flood-of-consciousness riffing still tickles. Quaid is a terrific foil -- warm, engaging and facile.

June 7, 2019 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

A relaxed, ingratiating trifle with flashes of magical energy -- virtually all of those provided by series regular Jonathan Winters.

[Jonathan Winters'] few minutes of comic bizarreness scattered through each episode seem to belong in another show, and are not nearly enough to save this one.

To watch and listen to Winters is to understand where Robin Williams came from, and to appreciate Winters` gifts. He's the ultimate man-child, and I envy the generation that will be encountering him for the first time.
