      Season 2 – The Real O'Neals

      2016 Comedy List
      Reviews 95% Fewer than 50 Ratings Audience Score The close-knit, Chicago-based O'Neals seem to be the perfect Catholic family, but when surprising truths come to light, some lives take an unexpected turn. Eileen, Pat, Kenny, Jimmy, Shannon and Jodi decide to let the honesty ring in a new, less tidy chapter of their story, where they all drop their carefully honed facades and discover the unexpected freedom that accompanies just acting real. Instead of being torn apart, the O'Neals find that their newfound way of life actually brings them closer together. Read More Read Less Watch on Vudu Premiered Oct 12 Buy Now

      Previous David Wiegand San Francisco Chronicle In many ways, The Real O'Neals is Tuesday's version of Modern Family - a tad more real, perhaps, but just as funny. 3/4 Nov 28, 2016 Full Review Ashley Ray-Harris AV Club Last year's finale seemed to isolate the O'Neals as a group, but season two sees them branching out in a way that hints at promising secondary characters and relationships outside of the family. B Oct 12, 2016 Full Review Caroline Framke Vox Both Kenny and his family have to learn to accept him the way he is, and thanks to The Real O'Neals' smart course corrections and Galvin's excellent comic timing, that story has really become something special.

      Previous Chad B A funny show that wasn't given a chance. It was smart, touching, and hilarious. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Was my favorite show. ABC was short sighted in cancelling The Real O'Neals. It was great having a show showing lgbt youths in a straight comedy. They had something special with the cast and the crew. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Season 2 was a big improvement, although the characters are still insufferable, there were some good oneliners. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member new favorite comedy <3 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Another hilarious season, our family's fave.
