Review of "Miracle Workers" 2/23/18 by Suzanne
airs Tuesdays, 10:30/9:30pm on TBS

This is a quirky, funny show. The premise is that heaven is a big, useless bureaucracy, and that god is an old bored, slightly-crazy guy who watches multiple TV's of what's going on down on Earth.  Steve Buscemi plays God.  Daniel Radcliffe of the "Harry Potter" movies plays Craig, whose job is to grant wishes.  His world is changed when a new worker, Eliza (Geraldine Viswanathan) arrives. She wants to help people and answer big wishes, but Craig is stuck in his thousands-of-years rut. He'll only grant small wishes that don't affect the world very much. Eliza stirs up trouble, not satisfied with the way things are run. God gets involved and makes them a bet. The fate of the Earth rests on whether they can get two people to date and fall in love.

TBS comedies are usually hit-or-miss. They haven't had a lot of success in their original comedies until fairly recently with "The Detour." I thought some of their other shows were funny, like "Angie Tribeca" and "The Last O.G."  Hopefully, this new one will be successful. I think it's worth watching. The characters are great and very funny.


The first season of Miracle Workers is a Heaven-set workplace comedy based on Simon Rich's book What in God's Name. Radcliffe plays Craig, a low-level angel responsible for handling all of humanity's prayers, and Steve Buscemi plays Craig's boss God, who has pretty much checked out and is ready to move on to his next project. To prevent Earth's destruction, Craig and fellow angel Eliza (Geraldine Viswanathan) must answer a seemingly impossible prayer: help two humans fall in love. Karan Soni plays Sanjay, God's right-hand man.

The series is created by Man Seeking Woman creator Simon Rich and executive produced by Lorne Michaels and Andrew Singer of Michaels’ Broadway Video, Simon Rich, Daniel Radcliffe and Steve Buscemi. Broadway Video produces the series in association with Turner’s Studio T.
