      Steve Johnson Chicago Tribune The show is hackneyed about Winters learning to live on her own, saying it with such obvious moments as having Ford deliver a resounding I-am-woman speech and then lead a dance to Walk Like an Egyptian. Aug 21, 2019 Full Review Tom Shales Washington Post Maggie Winters will have you rooting for Faith Ford but not for Maggie Winters, the character she plays, and overplays, in this forced sitcom: Aug 21, 2019 Full Review Howard Rosenberg Los Angeles Times A decade as ditzy Corky on Murphy Brown showcased [Faith] Ford's flair for comedy. She's at her best in Maggie Winters when mellowing and not trying to top her material. Aug 21, 2019 Full Review Scott D. Pierce Deseret News (Salt Lake City) [Faith] Ford is as appealing as ever, but there's not much of a show built around her. Aug 21, 2019 Full Review David Zurawik Baltimore Sun [Faith] Ford is a nice supporting player, but this leading role looks to be too much for her. Ford's two or three Corky moves start wearing thin by the first commercial break. Aug 21, 2019 Full Review Alan Pergament Buffalo News A better idea for [Faith] Ford after Murphy Brown would have been to take a year off or attend her high school reunion.
