The Critic

The Critic

This show follows Jay Sherman, voiced by Jon Lovitz, who is a movie critic on TV. He is forced to review the most dumbest, insane films to which he always says this line "It stinks" for his reviews, that's his catch phrase. In addition to the film parodies, the show also deals with Jay's personal life, his son which he has to raise alone, working his tyrannical media mogul boss and his love-life and family.

The show had minor controversial moments, in some of its episodes. It was canceled after two years, though ten 2 minute brief "Internet only" episodes or "webisodes" were produced later on bring total number of episodes to 33 and were included as a bonus on the DVD box set. Today, cable's Comedy Central airs reruns of the show. But it is currently inactive on Comedy Central's line up.
