We gave it a B+

We’re living in a golden age of genre parody. And the Hotwives redux—which for purely nonsensical reasons has moved from Orlando to Sin City—earns a spot at the top of the pack. It spoofs its source material (anything and everything Real Housewives) so well, you might expect a Manzo to pop up. They don’t, but what we get is better: top comic talent like Casey Wilson, Tymberlee Hill, and Andrea Savage digging into the fun-house-mirror America we see on cable TV every day. Not sold? The first episode weaves together Weird Al, puppets, and a wedding. Brava. B+
