  • Its kindly spirit and those performances [from Graynor, Hansen and Grier] help prevent Bad Teacher from falling into the increasingly raunchy trap of its network predecessor, “Two and a Half Men.” Show More

  • It’s not about a “bad” teacher, just a slightly irreverent one. Show More

  • Leached of the original's tart sense of humor, the series quickly settles into lowest-common-denominator boilerplate, an unintended critique of the declining sitcom formula. Show More
