My Favorite TV Show Got Cancelled

Well, I just found out that my favorite TV show The West Wing, was just cancelled.

While I may not have always agreed with the political decisions and direction the show took, I very much enjoyed the show and cast. Apparently once the show moved to Sunday nights, the ratings tanked.

The decision to cancel it was made before actor John Spencer, who played former presidential chief of staff Leo McGarry, died of a heart attack Dec. 16, said Kevin Reilly, NBC entertainment president.

"There's a point when you look at the ratings and say, it feels like it's time," Reilly said.

The series finale will be May 14, preceded by a one-hour retrospective. The campaign to replace the fictional Josiah Bartlet as president will be settled, NBC said.

John Spencer, R.I.P.

Today, "West Wing" Actor John Spencer died, he was 58. Spencer was best known for his role as Leo McGarry. It is no secret that I love the show "West Wing". Spencer was one of my favorite actors on the show.

LOS ANGELES - John Spencer, who played a tough and dedicated politico on "The West Wing" who survived a serious illness to run for vice president, died of a heart attack Friday. He was 58.

Spencer died after being admitted to a Los Angeles hospital during the night, said his publicist, Ron Hofmann. He would have been 59 on Tuesday.

He was "one of those rare combinations of divinely gifted and incredibly generous," said actor Richard Schiff, who played Toby Ziegler on the NBC series.

"There are very few personal treasures that you put in your knapsack to carry with you for the rest of your life, and he's one of those," Schiff said. He said Spencer had been struggling with health issues but seemed to have rebounded.

Spencer played Leo McGarry, the savvy and powerful chief of staff to President Josiah "Jed" Bartlet (Martin Sheen). In a sad parallel to life, Spencer's character suffered a heart attack that forced him to give up his White House job.

Sleeper Cell

Last night on Showtime, a new show called Sleeper Cell debuted. While this show still has some of the "Hollywood hype", I think it was a good show. It does not play the politically correct role that most TV shows do.

I am not going to spoil what has happened on the show in case you watch it. But suffice to say that it could happen. In fact, I think it is happening.

“Sleeper Cell”

Definition: A small cell that isn't involved in any active terrorist activities until it is alerted, then begins it's predetermined preparation for an attack.

I am a firm believer that this is happening right now. I do not think it is solely one race or group of people doing this. I will certainly be watching tonight and I will report on tonights show either later this evening or tomorrow morning.

Commander in Chief - I LIKED IT

In the first 15 minutes of the show, Vice- President Mackenzie Allen (Geena Davis) was pushed around by the Presidents Chief of Staff, told to resign, and raised the alert status of the United States. She continued to catch flack from almost everyone. Then, she took the Oath of Office and started running the country. The way she thought it should be. I have always been a HUGE fan of the tv show "The West Wing." There are changes coming on "The West Wing" and I am not a big fan so farof these changes. I don't think this show will be the next "West Wing", but I think it will certainly be descent. So I look forward to reading other bloggers opinions as well as the media, and of course to see the upcoming episodes of "Commander in Chief".
