So far, MVP is a critical hit for SOAPnet.
Star Magazine lauded the primetime series, writing:
"While American viewers may not be so vested in the reputation of Canada's ice heroes, the juicy storylines and tasty eye candy should be more than enough for those who don't know a hockey puck from a basketball."
Queerty.com, a popular gay and lesbian website, wasn't quite as gushing in its praise - but it did predict the show could become a big hit among gay men.
"Yes, it's terribly overacted, trite and a blatantly low-budget imitation of Footballer's Wives, but those faults make it all the more fun. What's more, it's positively brimming with attractive men. Thus, like other series before it, MVP seems poised to become a gay favorite."
