TONIGHT: Live-Blogging Commander-in-Chief
Somebody’s got to do it: Commander-in-Chief got huge ratings last week. Tonight. 9:00. Live-blogging here. Come on by and join in!
8:54 I’m asking myself: why bother with this silly show? The answer is that first, the show won its time slot last week. So there are a lot of people interested in, I’m guessing, the premise. A woman president. And that’s my second answer — this is an important topic. If they are going to do a show about female leadership, they ought to get it right.
9:03 Given the events of this week — it’s very interesting to see the Speaker of the House handing his suggestions for VP to the Chief of Staff. . .
9:04 Sniper on the roof. That’s real.
9:05 “First Gentleman” — I hope they don’t play his role for laughs the whole time. Such great serious possibilities.
9:13 So the Democrats are the majority in the Senate, huh? Funny.
9:14 He won a war without losing a single American life? (Her preferred Vice Presidential pick.) Good one.
9:43 Be sure to follow the comments with great observations from the Drill Sergeant!
9:48 It strikes me that a theme running through this show is a lack of professionalism. The Press Secretary is struggling. And the Chief of Staff just yelled at the President? Never. Ever. Not going to happen.
The collagen lips are still terribly distracting, but the Mackenzie Allen character is better than last week.
9:54 Hah. So now we get to have Wesley Clark as Vice President. It is interesting to see Hollywood dream.
9:58 I don’t think that actor is believable as a general. Looks a little lightweight.
The Speaker of the House says the General “will never be confirmed.” So they’re setting up a confirmation battle to parallel real life. Clever.
