News & Interviews for Donny!: Season 1
The only thing worse than spending time with a loudmouth who thinks he's charming is when the loudmouth actually charms you. This is painful to admit, but that actually happens with USA's new sitcom Donny!
It's no big surprise that the new USA sitcom, Donny!, is underwhelming.
Where Donny! stumbles will be with the inevitable comparisons to David's Curb Your Enthusiasm, the benchmark of success for improvised sitcoms... Donny is more difficult to relate to.
But Donny! feels more like penance -- personal penance, full of self-loathing and vapid, creepy one-liners directly aimed at the guy saying them. As such, this becomes penance for viewers, too.
Donny! is a singularly unfunny self-referential show about a rich ad exec turned celeb named Donny Deutsch who hosts a successful talk show. The result is just as bad as the concept.
