Howard Rosenberg of the Los Angeles Times called the series "routine sitcomdom" with "some occasional bright dialogue". John Carman of the San Francisco Chronicle was also unimpressed, and thought the show was "almost an exact copy of It Had to Be You", which lasted a month. Matthew Gilbert of The Boston Globe said the series was "neither horrible nor promising, just kind of generic and bland". David Bianculli of the Daily News rated the series one and a half stars, and called the scripts "painfully predictable and not even sporadically amusing". Kevin D. Thompson of The Palm Beach Post also rated the series one and a half stars saying that the show is "a bland family comedy we've seen too many times before". Elaine Liner of the Boston Herald gave the series no stars, as well as grading it "an F as a two-alarm failure".
