Storyline

President Gilcrest may be foremost the US head of state and government, his reassembled family complicates life in the White House considerably, often interfering with his image or even with matters of state. Eldest son Skip is as goofy as self-absorbed, his (step-)siblings are rather ambitious but socially awkward. Eldest daughter Becca's ruthless march to career is suddenly questionable when she has a fertile affair with irresistible 'simpleton' D.B. Written by KGF Vissers

Don't Waste Your Time
16 January 2013 | by (Wenonah, NJ) – See all my reviews

NBC is very clever, trying to make viewers think that surrounding such a bland show (allegedly a comedy) with shows that are truly funny will magically turn this dud into a success. I was curious; having seen way too many promos for this show that did not make me laugh, I thought that maybe the lines that would cause me to chuckle were being saved for the pilot. Nope. Okay, maybe the next episode will be funny. No, again. This show is cringe-worthy. The oldest son, the doofus, makes one uncomfortable and not the awkward, comedic uncomfortable that Michael Scott would induce. I've seen bad shows before, but none that made me wish for my time back. Don't watch this show! Find anything else to do!
