Commander in Chief Declines in Approval Ratings

Commander in Chief

As we’ve been hearing lately, the approval ratings for the President of the United States have been reaching all-time lows.  Now just one day before Pres. Bush’s State of the Union speech (snore!), ABC is delivering news about their own fictional POTUS:  her ratings stink too.

Despite early success for the first-term show - and a recent Golden Globe win for Geena Davis - it seems that the novelty may have worn off for President Allen’s constituents.  (Of course, the powerhouse better known as American Idol probably had something to do with that).  Not even bothering to stick it out through the upcoming February sweeps, ABC is already putting the show on hiatus to make room for the network’s new comedic offering: Sons & Daughters. 

Of course, ABC execs claim that they are not abandoning the show— they are simply allowing it to return in the spring with all new episodes.  Because watching new show uninterrupted, as opposed to

not at all

, makes a lot more sense?
