Jeers: What a Strain!

Jeers to Eric McCormack for his laughable performance in The Andromeda Strain. The Emmy-winner was clearly looking for a change of pace after playing straight-laced Will Truman for eight seasons on Will & Grace, but his role as drug-addicted, unshaven TV muckraker Jack Nash in A&E's overheated adaptation of Michael Crichton's viral thriller is far from intoxicating.

Even Geraldo isn't this ridiculous.• Share your own raves and rants about other shows on the Reader Cheers & Jeers discussion board.• We may feature your Cheer or Jeer on TVGuide.com or in TV Guide magazine!  Read Full Article
