NBC may have found a scapegoat for The West Wing's declining ratings: Martin Sheen. The show's commander in chief told the Los Angeles Times that Peacock execs "let it be known they're very uncomfortable" with his rather public opposition to a U.S.-led war against Iraq. A network spokeswoman, however, told The Associated Press that she knows of "no concern among top management at NBC regarding Mr. Sheen's stand against the war or fear that it could impact the show." Someone here is lying, and I'm going to go out on a limb and say it's the publicist.
