President Allen's Numbers are Dropping

For those Commander In Chief fans out there - spread the word! Mac may not get through her first term, let alone re-elected for a second if the numbers keep dropping... only 10 million viewers this week, for a great show.

I guess a lot of people have been saying that the show lost its soul when the new producer stepped in... but here are my retaliations to people's issues with the show:

1. Too much like West Wing - I've never seen the West Wing, but I've heard great things about it. As the saying goes, "if it ain't broke..." Although it seems different, Lost is very much like Alias in the way the plot and character development is handled, but it is still a great show on its own. I bet this is the same.

2. Why did they make the husband the chief of staff? To be controversial! This makes for tension in the White House, and there is only so much you can do with the joke of a man playing the "first lady"...

3. Why is Templeton so buddy buddy with Allen now? I have a feeling that this will soon change, now that Allen has announced she is running for re-election. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer, right?

In conclusion - watch this show! Its quality TV, something we don't get much of these days - although you wouldn't know it from the length of my picks list... :)
