  • Ed Bark

    Together they [Patrick Warburbon and Carrie Preston] put a fair amount of zing into NBC’s New York City-set Crowded, which otherwise has a thoroughly shopworn premise and an increasingly outdated laugh track.

  • Robert Bianco

    The series may lean on them [Patrick Warburton and Carrie Preston] to bolster a faltering script more than it should, but there’s no question that when they’re on screen (which is most of the time), Crowded manages to chug along.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Erik Adams

    Like Hot In Cleveland, it’s throwback TV, with all the unfussy charms that implies. Some weak conceptual components aside, what it offers is the warm comfort of the familiar.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Verne Gay

    A genial, old-fashioned--nay, prehistoric--family sitcom on the wrong network.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Gail Pennington

    Every single thing about Crowded feels familiar, as if we've seen it many times, which we have.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    The series is not crowded with laughter, but things begin to look up by the third episode.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Jeff Korbelik

    The comedy comes off as a less funny “Modern Family,” with the daughters uncannily similar (one’s dim and fashionable; the other is smart and geeky) to the “MF” girls.

    The Lincoln Journal Star Full Review
  • Scott D. Pierce

    It's a new show that feels very much like an old show. Like shows we've seen umpteen times before.

    The Salt Lake Tribune Full Review
  • Ellen Gray

    Preston and Warburton have enough genuine chemistry to make me wish Crowded were a show about middle-age people trying to figure out who they are beyond parents, instead of one about parents trying to find a quiet place to fool around where their annoying children won't interrupt them.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    Crowded has a couple of laughs--mostly due to Warburton’s deadpan reactions --but mostly it mines well-trod sitcom ground with jokes on parents smoking pot (they get the munchies!) and old people yelling.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

    Really, it’s only Warburton who’s able to muster the rare amusing moment, and that’s not because of his lines, but rather the way he delivers them, with his unique combination of squints and grimaces and slow-drawl responses.

    Yahoo TV Full Review
  • Neil Genzlinger

    Mr. Warburton is his usual deadpan self as Mike, which makes him seem decidedly out of place in this household, where everyone else is over-energized and overacting. This series, created by Suzanne Martin and inspired by her own life, has a throwback feel, with lots of quick gags and not much depth.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Crowded feels like a throwback on every conceivable level.

    Variety Full Review
  • Glenn Garvin

    Warburton's expressionlessly ironic delivery turns repetitious; the situations unfunny and even creepy (do daughters really announce their alternative sexual proclivities by making out with a girlfriend in front of dad?) By the end of the second episode, you may even find yourself longing for a good Bill Cosby rape joke. Full Review
  • Mitchel Broussard

    It combos clichéd plots like marriage problems and familial discord with attempted stabs at topical hot-button issues (Stella is gay for a scene), but does justice to neither and appears disinterested in its own goings-on in the process.

    We Got This Covered Full Review
  • Bruce Miller

    Filled with predictable jokes, stereotypical characters and situations that wouldn’t have been fresh two decades ago, the new comedy wastes its premise and all but deserts star Patrick Warburton, the only one who appears to be making an effort.

    Sioux City Journal Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    A new sitcom on NBC that feels like it aired in the early 1990s and is a huge disappointment and groaning mistake.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Terry Terrones

    Instead of poking fun of modern families with millennials who return home and the awkwardness that can create, viewers are treated to over involved parents who placate their kids and exacerbate their own problems. This is not only frustrating to watch but completely unfunny.
