  • The pilot snaps through the premise in such short order that there’s no effort involved from the viewer except to sit back and enjoy the hijinks. Show More

  • What sets The Mayor apart, though, is its conviction. It’s the kind of earnestness not seen since Parks and Recreation. ... Hall gives a winning performance as Courtney that makes it easy to believe he’s more thoughtful than he seems. ... All in all, it’s one of the more promising debuts of the fall TV season. Show More

  • The degree to which the show succeeds will probably rest on how many viewers tune in and like what they see in Hall’s brash, energetic performance. Show More
