A Moment Of National Mourning

I hate to be the bearer of such sad news, but I’ve little other choice. I know many of you will be horribly, horribly, inconsolably upset, but there’s nothing that can be done. Sadly, it’s over.

Yes folks, they finally cancelled Commander in Chief.

Try not to spend the rest of the day in a fog, sobbing constantly, or attempting to jump off a tall building. But the Clinton 2008 campaign commercial critically-acclaimed family/political drama is now consigned to television history.

Sure, you may say, the premise was hackneyed, and the whole show was like a Fisher-Price version of The West Wing, but what cold and heartless TV executive would be so cruel as to cut down a sapling of a show before it’s time? Well, apparently the good people at ABC just don’t have the heart to let Geena Davis look conflicted and Donald Sutherland look like, well, Donald Sutherland any longer.

So, the three of you who cared for that show (one of which is undoubtedly Hillary Clinton) will just need to move on…

  1. I never watched this show, but at times wish I had taken a giant bite out of this piece of political cheese early on. NBC had a fun little short-lived show called “Mr. Sterling” back in 2003, starring Josh Brolin (yeah, the same guy from “The Goonies” and “The Young Riders”!) as a maverick Senator that was a blast while it lasted. As for “Commander in Chief”, it would most likely still be going strong if not for problems on the set triggering production delays and keeping the series off of ABC’s schedule for more than a month back in December and January. The ratings started plunging and never bounced back. Given its fate, I guess it’s a good thing that I didn’t start watching the show. It will nonetheless be sad to see it replaced with another mindless reality show or cookie-cutter forensic crime show.

  2. Bah, that’s nothing compared to the other horiffic entertainment news that emerged yesterday…

    Paramount wants Ben Affleck to play Captain Kirk on an upcoming Star Trek movie.

    The 13-year old boy inside me just held a glock to his skull and pulled the trigger…
