      Previous Ann Hodges Houston Chronicle From smart hip script to slick comedy acting -- good job on The Job. Jan 8, 2020 Full Review Ken Tucker Entertainment Weekly Shot on film with intentionally herky jerky camera work, "The Job" is surprisingly effective. C Jan 8, 2020 Full Review Linda Stasi New York Post "The Job," ABC's new sitcom produced, starring, written and overall done by Denis Leary, who may be the funniest man in town, is the funniest show since "I Love Lucy."
