Sitcom about the POTUS played by George C. Scott. If he sounds like an unlikely sitcom star to you, you're right. This show was often serious, though it was structured like a sitcom and fits better into that tradition. That's not to say it wasn't funny too, but it dealt more realistically with the goings-on in the Oval Office than farces like "Hail to the Chief." George C. Scott was a great actor, and he did fine here. The tone of the show would've been a delicate matter in any situation, but it especially didn't fit with Fox in its early years. Perhaps it might have worked better on CBS.
