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

Terrible Show!
11 January 2013 | by punjabikiddSee all my reviews

Individually, all of these Actors/Actresses are very good. They're great comedians, and even at times, have moments where a "serious" role does them well. However, in this instance, where you bring them altogether into a "melting pot" of comedy...it's just down right painful to watch. The only reason to watch is the hope, that it will become less terrible; only to find out...it never does! NBC should free these Actors/Actresses from this show before it becomes detrimental to their futures.

And Bill Pullman...I liked you better as a Command-In-Chief in "Independence Day," than as a JOKE of a C-i-C in this laughing stock of a show!
