Critic Reviews for The Carmichael Show: Season 3

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

In the end, The Carmichael Show is a rare sitcom that isn't afraid to call out its characters when they start acting like sitcom characters. And it makes for quite the conversation starter.

Uneven, but the core strength remains -- a sitcom that embraces the uncomfortable, and sometimes the unmentionable.

The Carmichael Show was really dynamic...

June 26, 2018 | Full Review…

The show has settled into a comfortable rhythm at this point in its life cycle. The strengths of the show are they way it can open up discussions about tricky or touchy subjects.

June 7, 2017 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Surprise: the show that likes to think of itself as topical presents almost exactly the same wrongheaded script in which rape is the topic for the jokes.

May 31, 2017 | Full Review…

Even when it's preachy, the show is always engaging, and I'd recommend it to anyone who likes a sitcom with a sting.
