ABC made the pilot for The Mayor available on abcgo.
Officially premiers on October 3
The pilot is charming as hell, with sharp writing and solid performances. Definitely surpassed my expectations. Excited for the rest of the season, although the show would have worked better on FX, Netflix or HBO.September 14, 2017 at 4:04 am #1202212444
Haven’t watched the pilot yet as I hate watching something then having to wait weeks for episode 2 but from what I’ve been reading this is the only worthwhile new network show this year so maybe a potential Globe contender if it kicks off ratings wise.September 14, 2017 at 11:02 am #1202212793
Very good pilot. Funny, fresh, charming, and it didn’t feel like an ABC comedy at all, so I’m glad they took the risk. I’ve been rooting for Yvette Nicole Brown for a long time, so I hope she can get something good out of this. Also, the MVP for me were the friends. They were hilarious. Solid pilot. Some moments were a bit comedy cliche and very cheesy but for the most part it was very funny and fresh.

I enjoyed the pilot. It seemed different compared to the other ABC comedies. The friends were the best part of the show.October 4, 2017 at 12:56 pm #1202230075

This was great fun. The whole cast is fantastic and immediately engaging. Is it very cheesy? Yes but it’s also too charming to matter.

I really enjoyed the pilot. The supporting players are spot on, and very engaging. Brandon Micheal Hall is too cute, and if the pilot is any indication, he seems to be a natural. Love Yvette Nicole Brown, and hoping she gets some great supporting material to bask in.

The show isn’t very good but Brandon Michal Hall is absolutely excellent. This reminds me of how the first season of Parks and Rec wasn’t great despite Poehler being amazing, but it ended up becoming a great show.October 13, 2017 at 3:32 pm #1202236623
This show makes me chuckle a lot. Nothing has yet been absolutely hilarious but it’s still so enjoyable and all of the actors nail their roles so well (particularly Hall). The storylines are also really engaging which helps.

2 for 2. I’m really liking this show! Brandon is great! The supporting players are too good to be true!!November 10, 2017 at 5:07 am #1202407045
I so did not expect to like this show as much as I do, but i’ve watched every episode, and I love it! This last one sealed the deal. I wondered when they were going to get Courtney some romance poppin, and they did. Though the plot has been done before, it still had a fresh take, and the three dudes re-enacting the Soulja Boy dance for “Crank That” was hilarious and fun to watch. Yvette Nicole Brown continues to shine and is hilarious, and his best friends/employees are some of the best things to emerge on the television scene in a long time. They are absolutely hilarious!! I hope this show gets some Golden Globe nomination love.
