    You know men who devote an absurd amount of time to mocking one another? I do, and I call them ''me and my friends.'' Maybe that's why I so enjoyed this sitcom about a group of thirtysomething pals and their fantasy football league....Or maybe it's just darn funny.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Troy Patterson

    Steadfastly crass in content, The League is generally subtle in execution.

    Slate Full Review
  • Neil Genzlinger

    In its astonishingly raunchy way, The League is pretty funny whether or not you’re a fantasy geek, assuming you’re a TV-MA kind of person.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    The League comes close to the goal of creating a TV show with "The Hangover"-type appeal.

    Variety Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    As in "Sunny," they are almost-lovable losers, and that's a formula FX is now perfecting.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Glenn Garvin

    The testosterone-infused interplay as they taunt each other over career potholes, curdled marriages and sexual depravities and deprivations is scathing and hilarious, though an astonishing percentage of it cannot even be alluded to here.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    If you're easily offended, you will be appalled by The League. If you chuckle at smutty, raunchy humor and profanity, this show offers dirty-minded comedic rewards.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Heather Havrilesky

    Did I mention that The League is occasionally pretty funny? Forget that it's basically a Bud Light commercial stretched out to fit a half-hour of broadcast time.

    Salon Full Review
  • Paige Wiser

    The dialogue is entirely composed of trash talk, and as far as that goes, it's pretty creative.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    FX has always had a good idea what viewers it's after, and the way TV works these days, a loyal cult can be enough. The League certainly has the goods to get one of those.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    The raunchy comedy on The League had me laughing out loud a few times, but mostly I felt as though I’d seen it all done better before.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Barry Garron

    It can be funny at times, like when a draft pick becomes part of a negotiated plea bargain in a criminal case. And there's no denying the strong chemistry among the little-known cast. At other times, though the one-dimensional humor wears thin and the guys nearly become parodies of themselves.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Verne Gay

    Even with endless talk about genitalia and the things people can do to them, The League is surprisingly dull and slack - without snap or payoff.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Mary McNamara

    There's nothing wrong with a show about lovable losers, but they have to be, you know, lovable. Here, the men seem to be products of their writers' contempt; they're such babies that even their profanity doesn't rise from the potty.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    If you're going to do a show about fantasy football, then do it. Go big, or go home. As constructed, The League will leave no one happy.

    Newark Star-Ledger Full Review
  • Jonathan Storm

    Cable's FX, which has reliably churned out good watching for most of this decade, drives off a cliff tonight with an offensive and shockingly unfunny sitcom, The League.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Ellen Gray

    A single-camera sitcom about guys in a fantasy football league whose cluelessness is only matched by their crudeness.

    Philadelphia Daily News Full Review
  • Neely Tucker

    Why would you want to watch a show about this lame league when you could just use the time to play in one yourself, or, good heavens, just watch the game?

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Maureen Ryan

    Not much about this show rang true to me, except the moment when the league commissioner begged players to get their fees in on time.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • James Poniewozik

    The show is weak, sometimes plain creepy, when it moves from fantasy football to male fantasy.

    Time Full Review
  • Aaron Barnhart

    If I tell you that The League is a reprehensible show, I’m not really telling you that much. The new improvised-comedy series airing at 9:30 tonight on FX wears its reprehensibility with pride.
