Perhaps the absolutely worst tee-vee show of all time

That's a big distinction we're talking about here.

Geena Davis will "star" (yeah, I realize that's a relative term here) in a show I'm sure was pitched in the following manner: Judging Amy meets the West Wing, Desparate Housewives on Pennsylvania Avenue. Geena Davis as president? That's an insult to fake tee-vee presidents everywhere! Where's CJ Craig when I need her to put a lid on this story?

Geena Davis as president makes the quioxtic campaign of "Matt Santos" on this year's lame West Wing seem downright believable.

Will this stink more than Cutthroat Island, the chick pirate flick that, if there were any justice in the world, would have ended her career once and for all? Can it stink more than "The Court" featuring Sally Field as a perky, veal-fed gosh-darn loveable liberal Supreme Court Justice?

Only time will tell.

This tee-vee show alone has the potential to set back the election of an actual woman to the presidency by years.

Her name on the show is Mackenzie Allen? Who names their daughter Mackenzie?

And hey - Matt Santos is going to beat Alan Alda, that (kudos to hollywood for having their finger on the pulse of America yet again) atheist Republican!

There is Mackenzie Philips, once of One Day at a Time (bad 70s t.v. show) until drugs forced her into a long detour. Her dad was one of the Papas in the Mamas & the Papas, hippie folk singers. That's the type of people who name their daughter Mackenkie.

No contest. "Worst TV show ever" was, is, and always will be, "Manimal."

Hey- you don't think Geena's TV lady Prez will be a Democrat by any chance, do ya?

And how many episodes til the one where a Secret Service agent accidently sees her nekkid?
