The series is one of the few new shows to have caught the public imagination-it airs Tuesdays from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m.-and won a 4.3/10 on its first outing and 4.8/12 on its second in adults aged 18-49.
What Buzz is wondering, however, is whether Bochco might loosen up the humorless Mackenzie Allen, the first female president, played by Oscar winner Geena Davis. So far this series, Mackenzie and her straight-laced husband have offered little about their own relationship. Let's see Mrs. President letting out a few choice expletives as Templeton tries to undermine her. Bring on the interns ... maybe "Desperate Housewives" gardener Jesse Metcalfe could start delivering the pizza.
