Season 2, Episode 4 – The show adds a little more reliability to its characters in this week’s episode that addresses assumptions.
Season 2, Episode 3 – In a very topical third episode of the second season, the show’s comedic stylings shine as the team takes on sexual harassment in the workplace.
Season 2, Episode 2 – The show embraces parody in a really strong second episode, but Diana and Portia still outshine the rest of the cast.
Season 2, Episode 1 – While the show still defines its voice, the episode promises a funny second season is in store.
Season 1, Episode 9-10 – It’s time to say goodbye to Great News, but not forever—the show will be returning in the fall. These last two episodes prove that NBC was absolutely right to renew it, as they prove that it can sustain a story throughout several episodes.
Season 1, Episode 7-8 – Great News delivers its funniest two episodes of the season, with “The Red Door” being a near perfect half hour of comedy ending with some of the show’s biggest laughs yet. This promising show seems to have finally hit its stride.
Season 1, Episode 5-6 – Great News continues to be enjoyable, especially for a network comedy, but it’s over halfway through the season and it hasn’t completely found its footing yet. The ensemble gets a chance to shine this week, but Katie remains the weakest link.
Season 1, Episode 3-4 – Chuck continues to be the MVP of Great News, as the show delivers two amusing, but uneven episodes. Katie’s character needs some improvement, but the show’s capable of absurdly hilarious moments.
Season 1, Episode 1-2 – Great News premiered this week with a promising two episodes. While the 30 Rock comparisons are inevitable, as the shows share an executive producer (Tina Fey), writer (creator Tracey Wigfield), and a similar setting, Great News is strong enough to stand on its own.
