Critic Reviews for Great News: Season 2

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5)

Great News has a screwball charm and a flair for rapid-fire jokes, built on a premise that amusingly literalizes the classic sitcom concept of co-workers as family.

Top Critic

While the writing has its moments of brilliance, as a whole the show feels stagnant.

December 27, 2017 | Full Review…

It's a funny show, but it's working through some growing pains, trying to find its voice and figure out its cast chemistry, which, to be fair, it took 30 Rock about a season to do as well.

Top Critic

What follows our introductory glimpse at Diana's creepiness is a perfect, not-so-subtle takedown of the way society as a whole treats women who have been preyed upon by their male superiors.

October 20, 2017 | Full Review…

By pushing the story line into unexpected directions, it is more pointedly satirical and it makes us reassess the way we handle such abuses.

New York Magazine/Vulture
Top Critic

This show is underhyped and excellent, bursting with media-savvy jokes in the manner of Fey's 30 Rock.
