Question: I have found a silver lining in all of this strike business. Getting desperate for some quality entertainment during this "dry spell", I started TiVo'ing old episodes of one of my favorite shows, Homicide: Life on the Streets. For me, this was one of the first breakout-quality series in this genre. I have been thoroughly enjoying reliving some fabulous episodes, particularly the Luther Mahoney storyline. It is especially satisfying since I get a new episode of the syndicated series every day. This brings me to my question: Why have Andre Braugher and Kyle Secor not been able to find new roles that show off their talent the way Pembleton and Bayliss did? Watching these old episodes has reminded me how much I enjoy these two actors. I even gave Women's Murder Club a few extra viewings after Secor showed up in the pilot, but I didn't see him again after that. I guess if the strike landscape doesn't improve soon, I'll be looking to revive some other long-gone favorites and ...

With all the behind-the-scenes turmoil during Commander in Chief’s freshman (and potentially only) season (Thursdays at 10 pm/ET on ABC), you’d think Roseanne had been named president. For a show to fall from Golden Globe-winning hit to on-the-bubble underdog in a single year is pretty remarkable. But that’s what's happened.
When Commander launched last fall, it was a glossy, entertaining melodrama about the turbulent adjustment to White House life for Mackenzie Allen (Geena Davis) — a glamorously and defiantly Independent vice president — and her young, telegenic family.
The mix of domestic and political drama was just different enough
You may wonder, as I do, just what Rebecca Calloway's problem is on ABC's Commander in Chief (returning tonight at 9 pm/ET). I mean, wouldn't it be the bee's knees to be the president's daughter? Even though she left us hanging for a full day, TVGuide.com was more than happy to talk — prehiatus, mind you — with the first daughter, aka Caitlin Wachs (pronounced "wax"), about life in the White House, a pregnancy shocker to come and that older costar she's been calling "sexy."
TVGuide.com: So, you blew off the hotshot TV Guide reporter....Caitlin Wachs: Oh, no! [Laughs] Maybe I'll win you back.

Question: I have a suggestion to save Commander in Chief: Kill the president's husband (or at least divorce them). The plotline that has erased my interest for Chief is the idea of watching Mackenzie's husband as a "supporting" chief of staff. The entire concept is boring and offensive to the original concept: a woman capable of being the president of the United States. I am sorry, but I signed up for a show that leaves the man in the house while his wife is running the country, not this annoying double team formed by a married couple. So by killing the husband, you'll add a huge dramatic twist, plus the chance to get back on track. What do you think about my suggestion? Is there another way to creatively save Commander in Chief? Hopefully ABC will give the show a chance. However, I think if ABC wants to save a show, they should go with Invasion, since that one is completely flawless. Thanks for taking the time to read my question.
