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

Skip has to go
21 February 2013 | by duraflexSee all my reviews

The incredibly stupid, obnoxious son of the President is Skip. Skip is a thoroughly unlikeable character who completely spoils a show that MIGHT otherwise have some comedic potential.

It's a small wonder that NBC is running low in the ratings with dreck like this. Whoever green lights crap like this at the network needs to be fired NOW. The tone of this show is along the lines of another NBC bomb called WHITNEY and a tasteless CBS entry titled 2 BROKE GIRLS.

NBC was once a broadcast pioneer with an incredible pool of talent and a great staff of journalists. Somewhere along the way, the network lost its way and turned into the uber-liberal cesspool it is today.
