Critic Consensus: Breezy to a fault, Norm MacDonald's wry variety of comedy finds mixed success in the sitcom format, scoring some offbeat laughs without gelling into a consistently fun farce.

The ultimate lesson of The Norm Show is that it should be The Laurie Show.
Inappropriateness aside, The Norm Show brings a new comedic voice to prime time. Macdonald's voice may not be to everyone's liking, but it's at least fresh, distinctive and funny.
It's awful. Macdonald is no actor, which doesn't preclude becoming a sitcom star. But the material here is so weak even Olivier couldn't make it look good.
The interplay and comic tension between the characters of Laurie and Norm is one of the more pleasant surprises of TV's midseason.
Why do I like Macdonald on this new sitcom? Maybe he comes across better when he's part of a team instead of smirking solo.
