Critic Reviews for Stark Raving Mad: Season 1

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

This sitcom is not off to a sidesplitting start. But its talented costars give hope of improvement, and its enviable time slot offers some expectation of survival.

Stark Raving Mad isn't a bad show. It just isn't very good. The pilot has its amusing moments but few that can't be seen coming.

June 17, 2019 | Full Review…

Its few real laughs look almost like accidents, since the premise itself strains plausibility. And unlike creator/executive producer Steven Levitan's other NBC shows, this lacks anything resembling magic.

You and I have seen too many book-lined studies filled with contrasting wisecrackers; no matter how good the actors and their material, these days we simply need something different.

"Stark Raving Mad" is an ugly little item on many levels.
