Critical reception

The show was met with mixed reviews from critics, with a score of 43 out of 100 based on 18 reviews from Metacritic. Despite stating that it "sounds from a bare-bones description as if it were a cloddish comedy that deserves immediate cancellation," Neil Genzlinger of The New York Times added that "if the show's writers can deepen the characters, Made in Jersey just might continue to be worth watching."

International broadcasts

In Canada, the show has been picked up by Global Television Network, where it will air on the same night as the American broadcast, but will air at different times depending on the region and simultaneous substitution opportunities. In Portugal, it premiered on TVSéries on October 18, 2012.
