From inciting treason to telling poop jokes, Sarah Silverman has created her fair share of online chatter. With I Love You, America, she's looking to connect with people who may not agree with her personal opinions through honesty, humor, genuine interest in others, and not taking herself too seriously. While it's great to connect with like-minded people, Silverman feels it's crucial, now more than ever, to connect with un-like-minded people.

I Love You, America - Reception - Netflix
I Love You, America has been met with a positive reception from critics since its premiere. On the review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes, the first season holds a 92% approval rating with an average rating of 7 out of 10 based on 12 reviews. The website's critical consensus reads, “Earnest and sarcastic, crude but compassionate, I Love You America is a welcome dose of optimism in an overly cynical late-night landscape.” Joyce Slaton of Common Sense Media praised the series saying that it is “an entertaining shell of a show, hosted by a woman so charming and quick that she can make you think and laugh instead of roll your eyes.” Justin Charity of The Ringer commented that, “In a world of unrelenting political hostility, I Love You, America rides the distinction between empathy and condescension as well as it hits the sweet spot between relevance and relief.” Brett White of The Decider said in positive review that, “Sarah Silverman's going for something unique in the political commentary world: genuine compassion. And, with her interviews, she seems eager to prove that compassion is the only thing that can really make change.” Vanity Fair's Laura Bradley offered comment on Silverman's interviews when saying, “Some viewers will find these conversations galling and ill-considered; for those willing to stick around, however, I Love You, America is a fascinating, if occasionally challenging exploration of what, precisely, a streaming talk show can do.” Darren Franich of Entertainment Weekly positively compared Silverman to other late night hosts saying, “I'm glad Silverman has a venue for this because we should have a venue for this. The other political late night hosts can feel like they're preaching.”
