Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This coarse behind-the-scenes series offers lots of crass humor to deliver on laughs. The writing isn't particularly smart, thanks to its "soft" scripted approach (incorporating lines that the actor would probably say in real life), but it gives room for the real Donny Deutsch to incorporate what makes him a well-known TV personality. As a result, it's hard to tell whether he's supposed to be a parody of himself or this is Donny.

It's meant to be lighthearted, and the cameo appearances by various TV personalities add a bit of mirth. But the banter gets stale, and the timing of the jokes is often off, because despite the fact that Donny Deutsch is no stranger to TV, he's not a comedian. His fans might be drawn to it, but overall the show just isn't very funny.
