“Well, well, well, The Comedians, we’re getting a little introspective, eh? This week’s ‘Celebrity Guest’ isn’t quite as funny as last week’s ‘The Red Carpet’, but it definitely has a lot to say about itself: Start with Denis O’Hare’s opening sentiment and end, chapter by chapter, with multiple guest appearances by the legendary Mel Brooks. ‘A show needs to find itself here at FX,” O’Hare tells us. ‘We’re interested in getting it right.’ Is that so? How very meta of you. There are missed opportunities for FX to make a few self-deprecating jokes at its own expense here, but maybe the writers are trying to tell us something. ‘We’re doing our best. Thanks for sticking with us while we find our groove.'” (Via Paste Magazine.)
