"Commander" heads to Camp David

ABC is worried enough about the slipping ratings of "Commander In Chief" to give Geena Davis and company a six-week break beginning March 7.

ABC says the show will return, but we've heard that one before... Fox's "American Idol" just restarted on Tuesdays and is killing "Chief" in the ratings. And it's not like there are a bunch of friendly timeslots out there just waiting to be filled. Odds on "Chief" returning? I'd say 90 percent in its favor, at this stage.

Why blame everythinng on, "American Idol?" It has reached the point where it will become a "tuneout" factor for itself. Every reality show tries to mirror Idol and people can only take so much sarcasm a week.

I've read that Fox's early projections for this season called for a slight dip in "Idol's" ratings. Instead, they're up 15 percent. Snarky, sappy, annoying, whatever, "Idol" is the most succesful show on TV right now and it's showing no signs of flagging. If ABC wants "Commander" to have a future, it makes sense to get it out of the way of the oncoming freight train.

ABC is desperate for stuff on Monday, since the Heather Graham thing tanked. Maybe they should move "Commander" there. I really enjoy the show, I hope it doesn't go away forever.

I'm with you, Monday would be perfect for "Commander"
