Critical reception

The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported a 33% approval rating, with a rating average of 6/10, based on 6 reviews On Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating, the series has a score of 55 out of 100, based on 5 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews"

In a positive review, Diane Werts of Newsday awarded the pilot a grade of a B+ and stated, "There's also a lot of craft behind "Clipped" That finally tips the scales in the Turner cable world, where TNT has found success with slick dramas like "Rizzoli & Isles" and "Major Crimes," while comedy sibling TBS more often seems to whiff Not this time" Similarly, Whitney Matheson of The Hollywood Reporter commended the cast's chemistry: "Clipped’s charm lies in distinctive performances by Lapkus and Cook Just as Wendt and Tisdale will attract their own admirers, so will these two comedians, whether it’s for Lapkus’ Orange Is the New Black role or the actors' respective podcasts" Conversely, Matthew Gilbert of The Boston Globe criticized the show as "forgettable — if not unpleasant", citing that the elements of "Clipped" might have "resonated and felt fresher" if Will & Grace hadn’t preceded it
