Critical reception

The Haunted Hathaways has generally received a positive reception. David Hinckley of the New York Daily News says that it has the traditions of "smashing two very different families together" and "having a normal level of sitcom zaniness compounded by the unexpected appearance of the supernatural." He enjoyed the idea of a traditional sitcom every once in a while.[9] Sonia Saraiya of The A.V. Club claims it to be "unique and slightly convoluted" She also said that it has an "interesting" gender and racial breakdown.[10]
