      Noel Holston and Neal Justin Minneapolis Star Tribune Despite [Jamie Foxx's] talent and the presence of some good old pros in supporting roles, there's nothing new in his showing off for the hotel's gorgeous marketing director or his putdowns of its Cornell-educated buppie accountant. Oct 19, 2021 Full Review Caryn James New York Times The characters think it's a wild success, but it doesn't look that way from the other side of the television screen. Jul 16, 2019 Full Review Rick Kushman Sacramento Bee Mindless if harmless silliness Not a lot to recommend and it commits the crime of wasting Garrett Morris Rated: 1.5/4 Oct 21, 2021 Full Review James Endrst Hartford Courant It's very broad, very loud and not very entertaining... The talent is here. The show is nowhere. Oct 19, 2021 Full Review Diane Holloway Austin American-Statesman Foxx's talent is wasted in the pilot... Unamusing insult and sex jokes abound. Oct 14, 2021 Full Review Melissa Camacho Common Sense Media Featuring an all-African-American cast, The Jamie Foxx Show's humor relies more on good comedy writing than strong or demeaning racial stereotypes. Rated: 3/5 May 28, 2019 Full Review
