‘Commander in Chief’ Gets Early Send Off

TV network ABC is pulling Commander in Chief off its schedule even earlier than anticipated, due to poor ratings.

The Geena Davis drama was scheduled to go on hiatus on February 28, but network executives decided to make the break effective immediately.

ABC’s scheduling chief Jeff Bader insists the network was trying to do “what we think is best for its long-term prospects”.

Bader says, “With this new schedule, (Commander) will return with a healthy run of seven straight episodes in the spring.”

The show has been plagued by problems including production delays and the show’s original creator being replaced last year, but there have been some bright moments – Davis claimed a Best Actress Golden Globe award last month for her portrayal of President Mackenzie Allen.
