William Powers is a clueless senator whose career is actually run by his manipulative wife Margaret, his smart chief of staff (and mistress) Jordan, and his political aide Bradley. At home, the senator also has to contend with his fussy daughter Caitlyn and her suicidal husband Theodore, who happens to be in love with the Powers' bumbling maid Charlotte. The arrival of the senator's illegitimate daughter, Sophie Lipkin, in the middle of a tough re-election campaign causes consternation for everyone, but Sophie ends up bonding quickly with her father and becomes an important part of his life and his workplace.

This was one of the funniest TV shows, ever. My husband and I loved it. When we found out it was going to be cancelled, I did something I had never done before, I called NBC to protest the cancellation. I was told that they had hoped it would succeed and tried a 2nd season but the viewership still did not improve. I told them I thought they should give it one more season and put it in a better time slot. I compare the loss of this show to the loss of "Arrested Development", another great show that middle America couldn't get it's mind around. I also would like to see "The Power that Be" again, its been 13 years since it ended. I hope NBC comes out with the DVD.
