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.
Answer: Is anyone listening? Fan as I have been of Kyle Secor since Homicide: Life on the Street and all the way back to St. Elsewhere, this seems like the best, most dramatic option to rescue this series from the doldrums in which Steven Bochco and his new team have put it. If not kill Rod, split them up. Making him more or less an equal partner has been more than detrimental — it may have been fatal.
