The Michael Richards Show: Season 1 (2000)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Hackneyed and unfunny, The Michael Richards Show is a disappointment on all counts.

Episodes

Tv Season Info

Misadventures of an unconventional L.A. PI, whose methods confounded clients and everyone else. Star Michael Richards hoped the character would become 'an American Inspector Clouseau,' but the series--the first starring a 'Seinfeld' alum after that classic ended--didn't make it past mid-season, thus beginning the so-called `Seinfeld curse.'

Critic Reviews for The Michael Richards Show: Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

If Seinfeld was a show about nothing, The Michael Richards Show is a nothing show.

The idea is to surround the star with solid performers while giving him free rein to do his brand of physical comedy, with its twitches, tics, stammers and squawks... this shtick isn't enough to fill out a show.

NBC should simplify Richards' life by quickly canceling this disaster.

NBC's cancellation of "The Michael Richards Show" was completely expected, given that the only thing worse than the show's ratings was its quality.

The nicest thing that can be said about The Michael Richards Show is, "Well, it isn't that bad." But that would be a kind and generous white lie. The truth is, it really is that bad.
