William Powers is a clueless senator whose career is run by his manipulative wife Margaret, his chief of staff/mistress Jordan and his political aide Bradley. Along for the ride are the senator's shrill daughter Caitlyn and her suicidal husband Theodore, who happens to be in love with the Powers' bumbling maid Charlotte. Last but not least is the senator's illegitimate daughter, Sophie Lipkin, who takes a job at her father's office. Written by

I agree with everyone in that this show was very funny not to mention very smart and witty. The funny thing is, I remember watching the show a long time ago with my family when I was about eleven or twelve years old and it was so hilarious that I found myself wondering about that show just the other day when I was watching a rerun of Frasier. I had since long forgotten the name of the show but was compelled to look it up on the internet. I agree that this show should have never been cancelled. However, the network should consider airing the episodes and also releasing it on DVD. I don't buy a lot of videos but this one would be worthwhile. A lot of very smart comedic shows get cancelled. A notable one would be "Arrested Development"- what a shame that was. Just when I had faith in great television again, they go and cancel a show that was finally worthy of being on TV. Now all we're left with is literally garbage. At least I have "The Office" to look forward to.
