Moore says the show is a success due to the constant twists and turns featured on The Oval in a 2021 interview with Shadow and Act. "I think that Tyler has outdone himself with The Oval in that it's the first show of its kind, at least that I'm aware of," she said. "We're not dealing with politics, we're dealing with the relationships in the White House. We're dealing with pulling back the curtain on the First Family…and then we're following the support staff home into their personal lives and digging into what their experience has been like."

Anthony Brown about a man who takes over a rundown senior home and hilarity ensues.
