    Generally an appealing little comedy, able to juggle things like identity and success and privilege and a general terror of aging with some nimble skill in a way that felt actually fresh.

    The series feels familiar but also fresh; predictable but not without character.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Molly Eichel

    There is potential for Lopez, but George has to stop relying on old tricks.

  • Diane Werts

    Should Lopez go big and broad with cultural comedy, trafficking so hard in stereotypes they seem all the more absurd? Or stay subtle and let its less-enlightened characters hang themselves? “Lopez” can’t decide, overloading its pilot with maid/valet/parole jokes (those crazy Mexicans!) vs. “white-man problems.”

    Many jokes are barely smile-worthy, and the show still feels broad and sitcom-y, despite its single-camera format. Sometimes, Lopez seems to be recycling lines from his stand-up act. But it's another step forward for TV Land.

  • Tim Goodman

    The first three episodes are good if a little erratic, but that's true of most sitcoms.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Ray Rahman

    Some [single-camera semiautobiographical comedies] were bad (The Paul Reiser Show), others were not so bad (The Jim Gaffigan Showe). I wish I could say George Lopez's effort is on the higher end of things. [1/8 Apr 2016, p.99]

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Margaret Lyons

    Lopez works best when it settles into being a mostly warm show with a bit of a bite, not a mostly biting show with a bit of warmth.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    It's not that Lopez is terrible, just terribly unoriginal as it depicts its lead character as slightly out-of-touch, overly concerned with his image, etc.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Despite a few references to well-publicized aspects of his biography--like divorcing his wife after she donated a kidney to him--the show is largely flavorless, with the funniest gag being a StarLine Tour bus that keeps swinging by his house and insulting him.
