What The Critics Say (Metascore 54)

  • The promising White Famous delivers a more agreeable take on industry satire. … Floyd is almost too good to be true. — Matt Roush, TV Guide
  • Consistently watchable due to a versatile and charismatic lead performance by Jay Pharoah, White Famous still feels like an impersonal relic of television past. — Dan Fienberg, The Hollywood Reporter
  • White Famous is the oldest trick in Hollywood’s book, a phony Horatio Alger story that’s really a vanity project struggling to validate its own vanity. — Darren Franich, Entertainment Weekly
