TV Talk response

I'm hearing from a lot of "Commander In Chief" fans. I'm sorry guys, ABC doesn't believe in your show anymore. It's not your fault, it's not the show's fault, it's the network's fault (and I should add that it isn't dead yet, although it ain't looking good).

Also hearing from a few "E-Ring" fans. That one's dead and buried, although not officially. Most of them have switched their allegiance to CBS' "The Unit," which is doing just fine and has already been renewed.

Meanwhile, Monday's story on television indecency continues to draw responses. Almost every parent I've spoken with has complained about commercials. They all say many commercials are in poor taste and that they have no way of monitoring what ads their kids see. That may be worth following up on.

Yes in a since its the fault of Disney that Commander In Chief is failing. The real problem is that their was so much backroom issues that did not help the show.

It also should be noted that the show attracted an older audience and its something that a network is not crazy about.

Don't lose heart, Hillary Clinton could still be the realworld first woman President. The show was more/less an informercial for her.

It was an infomercial for Hillary. However she still doesn't have a chance.

It was an infomercial because a show about a woman president makes no dramatic sense? That's silly. Yeah, advancing the idea that a woman could be president would naturally benefit Clinton -- assuming Condi is really out -- but if the show remained on through the 2008 election, it would be a millstone around her neck, because she would be incessantly compared to a fictional character. My take is that Hillary will shed no tears for CIC's demise.

Hillary is not going to shed tears over the loss of CIC no doubt about it. You move on with your life. It should be noted that their people that were very close to Hillary that were involved in this show, and I am not talking about Geena Davis.

CIC in a since was ABC's attempt at a West Wing of their own.
