The Graham Norton Show Reviews
- Rotten Tomatoes score: N/A
- Metacritic score: N/A
What the critics are saying:
- “He [Norton] is so high-octane, even his ears, his eyebrows look animated. When you’ve been doing it so long, maybe the question is not how do you keep such a pitch of enthusiasm, but how do you stop?” –Zoe Williams, The Guardian
- “It’s almost a throwback to Johnny Carson putting multiple people on the same stage and finding the extra magic that comes from sitting back and letting them work off each other.” –Jenny Cohen, USA Today
