Lurie Gets the Boot

Remember last week when I trashed the premiere of "Commander-in-Chief," and mostly blamed its lack of quality on creator Rod Lurie? Well, apparently someone else agrees, because Lurie has been fired from the show, replaced by Steven Bochco.

The move, which supposedly came because Lurie was taking too long producing each episode, is a surprise, considering it came only after two episodes had aired, both of which fared quite well in the ratings. But regardless, it makes me considerably more likely to watch the show.

I have watched this show allready for both episodes. While I was not a huge fan of The Contender, I am a fan of Geena Davis. I am also a fan of many Bochco shows, so I think this will be a great match up. Keep watching BLOGGER!!!
