  • Reception

    Proof received mixed reviews. Review aggregator site Metacritic gave the first season a "mixed or average" score of 59 out of 100, based on 11 critics' ratings. On another review aggregator site, Rotten Tomatoes, it held a 57% rating, based on 14 reviews, with an average score of 7.1/10. The Rotten Tomatoes consensus reads: "Proof's intriguing premise – and Jennifer Beals' strong starring performance – can't compensate for a lack of compelling stories."

    Brian Lowry of Variety said the show is exploring the mysteries of the afterlife in uninspiring and banal ways. Keith Uhlich writing for The Hollywood Reporter said that on paper, the show sounds like disaster, but it is revealed to be a beguiling object.
