Oscar winner Geena Davis starring as the first female president and Donald Sutherland as her first husband seemed like a capitol idea (get it?), but a change of show runners and behind-the-scenes messiness doomed this series after two quick seasons.
It turns out that the former 'SNL' star wasn't a ready to be a prime time player — his sketch show only lasted one season in 1996. But props for his co-stars, like the yet-to-make-it comedians Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert. Plus, the head writer was a funny man named Louis CK.
