The Jim Gaffigan Show follows the life of stand-up comedian & father of five, Jim Gaffigan. The single-camera sitcom is a fictionalized version of the comedian's real life, and chronicles "One man's struggle in New York City to find a balance between fatherhood, stand-up comedy, and an insatiable appetite." In the meta-style series, Jim and Jeannie Gaffigan live with their five children in a two-bedroom apartment in New York City.

  • Diane Werts

    What you will certainly see is how finely tuned both the marital observations and comic timing are.... This summer's must-see comedy smash.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Jeff Korbelik

    Gaffigan is a master of self-deprecation, and the jokes here, at his expense, come fast and furious. The banter between Gaffigan and the supporting characters is extremely well orchestrated.

    The Lincoln Journal Star Full Review
  • Gwen Ihnat

    What helps bring The Jim Gaffigan Show up to another level are its eponymous star and the cast he’s chosen to surround himself with. Gaffigan takes his own self-deprecation to absolute artistic heights.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Robert Lloyd

    A humane, human comedy, fun and funny.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

    It gets better with each episode--and it’s not as though Wednesday night’s premiere isn’t very funny.

    Yahoo TV Full Review
  • Molly Eichel

    He tweaks both his nice-guy image and the family-sitcom formula just enough to make his show feel new--yet he retains the sense of familiarity that beckons viewers and keeps them watching.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    As this glutton for self-punishment bumbles through bizarre misadventures, celebrity cameos by the likes of Chris Rock and Jon Stewart remind us that Gaffigan is more a player than a loser. His show's definitely a winner. [13-26 Jul 2015, p.12]

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Ed Bark

    The Jim Gaffigan Show showcases its star at his exasperated best, putting his now well-honed spin on the befuddled dad genre from which many a sitcom has supped.

    Uncle Barky Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    The Jim Gaffigan Show is a likable and good one--and it gets livelier and more confident as it goes along. It isn’t trying to knock you out by reinventing the form.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    Like its affable leading man, the series is an overall genial affair.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Neil Genzlinger

    Lots of amusing cameos add to the fun.... Mr. Gaffigan may not be the greatest actor, but he has a genial charm, which is the first prerequisite to making a show like this work.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Ray Rahman

    Mostly his adventuress result in stray one-liners and stilted semi-riffs. Imagine a less nourishing Louie or Curb Your Enthusiasm, full of empty calories. [24 Jul 2015, p.54]

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Mark A. Perigard

    Gaffigan plays a tubby man-child version of himself, and in the classic TV marriage cliche (see “King of Queens,” “According to Jim”), he just happens to be married to an insanely hot woman (Ashley Williams, “How I Met Your Mother”) who is loving and supportive beyond rational means. But Gaffigan has ambition.

    Boston Herald Full Review
  • Gail Pennington

    The Jim Gaffigan Show isn't cutting edge or hilarious. It doesn't make us cringe in embarrassment. It's just cute, and sometimes, that's enjoyable enough.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    Neither The Jim Gaffigan Show or “Impastor” forget to be funny. Both shows have clever banter that makes us laugh.... [But] many scenes start to feel like setups.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Ellen Gray

    Maybe there's an edgier Gaffigan crying to get out, but the edgiest thing about the show is its approach to his family's religion, which is matter-of-fact and specific.

    Philadelphia Daily News Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    The show is at its slightest when it slides into the “dumb daddy” territory previously mined by “According to Jim” and myriad other sitcoms. But at its best, The Jim Gaffigan Show manages to be cleverer despite a familiar conceit.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    Onstage, Gaffigan can be winning as a regular guy. But The Jim Gaffigan Show is merely ordinary.

    The Wrap Full Review
  • Hank Stuever

    The set-up is fine and the humor is mostly mac-and-cheese-flavored, but the first few episodes of The Jim Gaffigan Show struggle to nail down the “Modern Family”-like precision that seems to be the desired goal.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    The comedy is gentle, a bit musty here and there, but the show grows on you. One reason is that everyone is so gosh darn likable.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Like Gaffigan, the series has an affable quality to it; still, the premise generally feels a lot slimmer than its star is, as those around the self-deprecating comic constantly remind him.

    Variety Full Review
  • Josh Bell

    Gaffigan’s show was originally developed for CBS, and it has the safe, middle-of-the-road quality of most CBS sitcoms, which makes it just right for TV Land’s mild reinvention.
