Critic Reviews

  • It’s broad-brush stuff for the most part – especially when it comes to Gene and the co-workers, who are allocated about one and a half characteristics each and not given much to do with them. But Falcone and McCarthy are great to watch, and the central relationship between their alter egos gives the whole thing enough charm, warmth and heart to get by.

  • We’re still not sure of God’s Favorite Idiot will right itself or just become a train wreck. The second episode definitely gave us signs that it will try to make McCarthy’s character more than an ad-lib machine.

  • For every witty move there is a terrible attempt at getting laughs, such as a running joke about Clark’s bowel movements. I suspect this will be no one’s favourite show.

    The Telegraph
  • So many moments in “God’s Favorite Idiot” feel brutally underconsidered. ... “God’s Favorite Idiot” is just sad. What a waste of precious time in the career of a talented performer.
