"Commander In Chief" Taken off The Air
"Commander In Chief," which looked like the latest in a string of hits for ABC, will be pulled off the air starting March 7 to show back-to-back episodes of a new comedy called "Sons & Daughters." In logic that only a network executive could comprehend, ABC exec Stephen McPherson admitted to reporters last week that an earlier hiatus for "Commander In Chief" was a huge stumbling block. "I think being off for so long...has hurt it." Their solution? To take the troubled drama off the air for another six weeks. Brilliant.
