      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Assembling a likable troop of actresses and giving them vacantly crude material to work with, Three Sisters is an unfunny waste of comedic talent.

      Linda Stasi New York Post I assume Lewis and LaNasa will dominate the show because they are clearly the most strongly written characters. They need to make Annie a more real and less one-dimensional caricature. Ditto for the hubby. Jan 8, 2020 Full Review John Carman San Francisco Chronicle The Peacock has always been feathered, but rarely has it been so tarred... It's possible that Three Sisters is an integral part of NBC's continuing, and thus far unsuccessful, campaign to kill Frasier. Rated: 1/4 Jan 8, 2020 Full Review Steven Oxman Variety Creators DeAnn Heline and Eileen Heisler deliver a nicely calibrated blend of gentle and biting humor, and an able cast. Jan 8, 2020 Full Review Rob Owen Pittsburgh Post-Gazette In addition to decent comedic dialogue in its first three episodes, Three Sisters also manages heartfelt moments without getting too icky sweet. Jan 8, 2020 Full Review Tom Jicha South Florida Sun-Sentinel The new NBC sitcom is blessed with more talent than the insipid material warrants. There has to be a better show out there for Vicki Lewis. Jan 8, 2020 Full Review Alan Pergament Buffalo News Three Sisters manages to waste the considerable talent of the dry-witted Lewis and the considerable charm of Langer. Rated: 2/4 Jan 8, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
