    It's hard to imagine any other reason for NBC to go ahead with a noisy, unwatchable show like Night Shift except to fill holes in its schedule.

    The cast here is decent, especially Flint and Rodriguez, but the writing is unforgivably bad. Full Review
  • Lori Rackl

    The hodgepodge plot feels like an Obamacare ad rounded out with “Melrose Place” romance and “Untold Stories of the ER” weirdness. NBC would have been better off airing “Chicago Fire” repeats rather than fill this primetime slot with a summer burnoff series that’s D.O.A.

  • Brian Lowry

    Not surprisingly, the producers assemble a sizable, attractive and appropriately diverse cast, albeit without giving many of them much to distinguish their characters, who--whatever the color of their scrubs--simply blend together.

  • Rob Owen

    Sometimes the year’s warmest months remain a dumping ground for warmed-over series. Night Shift has all the earmarks of a show being dumped.

  • Matthew Gilbert

    The action may be as fast and persistent as a gurney on the way to an operating theater, but nothing can hide the wobbly scripting and weak characters it’s all riding on

  • Alan Sepinwall

    Its hero is so obnoxiously awesome and self-righteous that I could only make it through half of the whopping eight episodes NBC sent out for review.

  • Joanne Ostrow

    Both ["Undateable" and The Night Shift] are NBC series serving as spring-summer filler, adequate at what they do but not worth scheduling your life around.

  • Neil Genzlinger

    Don’t look for the depth of “House,” “Grey’s Anatomy” or other top-flight medical dramas here. But if preposterous, pulse-pounding pileups of bizarre accidents and obscure medical conditions appeal to you, sure, put the trashy beach novel aside and help yourself.

  • Ed Bark

    Night Shift won’t make anyone forget the glories of NBC’s ER at the height of its powers. It shows some signs of being a passable summertime drama series, though.

  • Robert Lloyd

    In some ways, it is like a placebo, lacking substance, but not ineffective. In others, it is a kind of gaily packaged generic equivalent to some better-known brand.

  • Tom Gliatto

    Shift is competent but useful mostly as a reminder to stay healthy at all costs and avoid this sort of place. [9 Jun 2014, p.34]

    People Weekly Full Review
  • Todd VanDerWerff

    Night Shift doesn’t really have another gear, but it refuses to go full Grey’s Anatomy and ramp up the sexy complications so much that it attains the lift off of fun melodrama.

  • Mark A. Perigard

    The Night Shift gets the X-ray right for a series. Now it just needs to find a way to pump some new blood.

    Boston Herald Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    With a relatively modest first order and a late May launch, The Night Shift may be seen by NBC as, realistically, a summer series. By that standard, it does its job and more.

    They are quirky--cookie-cutter quirky. But for summer TV drama, that's not the worst they could be.
