The critics have spoken

...and they love the Ferrell show too.

Their opinions are so much trivia at this point since "You're Welcome America" is pretty much sold out, but it's still nice to see that, e.g., Ben Brantley likes the show even though Ferrell-as-Bush doesn't think much of the New York Times.

Still, for the record, below are links to reviews from some leading press outlets. (I'd say David Rooney of Variety pretty much nailed it.)

Congrats! BTW, the NY Post headlines seems like a parody of a NY Post headline.
