What Matthew Gilbert says: "What an irritating show! Almost every line is a bad joke! Its like reading a series of sentences that all end in exclamation points! 'Partners' is ham on a shtick, a broad sitcom that moves at the same Ritalin pace as '2 Broke Girls,' the vaudeville showcase that airs right after it. Every other gag on 'Partners' is a double entendre about sexual activity or, in the words of one character, the 'shmeckel,' and every funny one-liner is followed and preceded by three or four misses. Maybe five."
