Critic Reviews for Great News: Season 2

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

This show is underhyped and excellent, bursting with media-savvy jokes in the manner of Fey's 30 Rock.

Great News takes a big leap in the direction of its forbearer, not just by bringing Tina Fey on to guest star as Diana St. Tropez, the new president of MMN, but also to essentially mold her in the vein of Alec Baldwin's brash but caring Jack Donaghy.

Most things get significantly better when you add Tina Fey to them. So it makes sense that adding the 30 Rock alum to the Season 2 cast of NBC's Great News takes an already-fun sitcom and elevates it about a bazillion notches.

TV Line

There are enough laughs to match the talent involved. The well-utilized cast is charming, the writing a bit sharper, and, oddly enough, the arcs feel more original.

September 28, 2017 | Full Review…

... the show is a fitting successor to the series that appears to have inspired it-fast and funny and appealingly strange, especially now that it's past the scene-setting of Season 1.
