Critical response[edit]

The review aggregator web site Rotten Tomatoes reported a 69% approval rating for the first season, based on 26 reviews, with an average rating of 5.19/10. The website's critical consensus reads, "9-1-1 occasionally veers into melodrama, but is redeemed with a top-tier cast, adrenaline-pumping action, and a dash of trashy camp that pushes the show into addictive guilty pleasure territory."[32] Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned a score of 60 out of 100 based on 21 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".[33]
