A New York Observer review described the show as "the 'Moose Murders' of sitcoms -- it won't be here past Halloween, but the recollection of its awfulness will give you untold delight for years to come." In contrast, the New York Times gave a very positive review to the show's debut, saying it possessed the "most accomplished, high-powered cast on television."
