But the kick of self-satirizing attempts to mock pampered, self-absorbed media types – such as Deutsch picking up his kids with a driver – feels about as dated as those “Where’s the beef? (Speaking of ads, Deutsch’s willingness to stop the show dead in its tracks to deliver them doesn’t help matters either, proving more confusing than cheeky.) Frankly, if Deutsch wasn’t at the center of the whole exercise, the show (which is being paired with “Chrisley Knows Best”) would probably have been built around his producer, who has to tell him that he can’t keep returning to lesbians as a topic, shamelessly flirt with guests or pretend to have cancer just to goose his ratings.Of course, that would have been “30 Rock,” instead of what emerges, which is a watered-down version of Starz’s “Blunt Talk,” already a watered-down version of “The Larry Sanders Show.” The second episode focuses on Donny needing to find an age-appropriate celebrity to date, somewhat amusingly running through a list of names before he lands on Christie Brinkley.
