The show is very similar to talk shows but include monologues, interviews, and pre-taped segments. The first season included an ongoing storyline featuring Mather Zickel focusing on the male ego, says EW.

The Hulu show was renewed following positive reception since its premiere. With review aggregation websites racking up over 90% approval ratings, both the critical and audience consensus has been largely positive. Despite the sarcastic and crude humor, Sarah Silverman is compassionate, and the welcome dose of optimism has raked in many viewers to the show.

Before I Love You, America Silverman had her scripted series The Sarah Silverman Program on Comedy Central, for which she won an Emmy. She has also acted in the series Masters of Sex and the movies The Book of Henry and The Battle of the Sexes.

The visual style of the show is led by J.P. Connelly who designed the set to feel like a “union between traditional late-night show and sitcom looks, Americana, and patriotism that simultaneously manages to pay homage to Silverman's personality”.

Excited about the renewal, Sarah Silverman said, “I am fundamentally changed with each episode, each interview, each encounter. By the end of this, I will likely be a butterfly. Or a colorful moth.”
