  • Ritter and Segal are better than their material, but this is the sort of show (like "Home Improvement" or "Full House") that ABC used to do so well. [13 Sep 2002] show more

  • Ritter remains in top comic form ... But his show ... is a mediocre effort that falls short of such ABC milestones as Roseanne and Home Improvement. show more

  • I find Ritter's performance -- as a father besieged by a pop culture he no longer understands -- to be, within the confines of the series' dumb-dad punchlines, rousingly substantial. show more
