Celebrity-driven restaurants, are they ever any good?

We have seen them come and go, celebrity driven restaurants and taverns (not to be confused on this post with eateries opened by celebrity chefs which is indeed another issue) question is: do they ever turn out good? In my area, greater New York City, we have and have had a number of these spots show up with big sports and Hollywood names involved and except for the opening excitement (hype), normally they do not last very long...Have you been to any celebrity establishments that are above average? Why do you think these places rarely display longevity...
