  • Hmmm…why so much interest in a fringe (pun intended) sci-fi show that’ll be on a lowly pay channel this summer??? What’s in it for you, Mr. A?

  • I am appalled that Donald Trump would have David Cassidy (i.e. alcohol addict) on his show. That’s exactly what we need to do…let’s support and give work and publicity to those who commit DUI’s!!! Is he kidding, how pathetic Trump is for offering a role to this dead-beat , non-talented alcoholic! I HAD respect for Trump, but after this stupidity, I won’t even watch the show. What is he teaching our children…”get a DUI, get a job”!

    • Donald Trump believes that people should be given a second (and sometimes third) chance. If you’re annoyed that alcoholic David Cassidy is on the show this time around, then I’m pretty sure you must have been annoyed the time that Dennis Rodman (also an alcoholic) was on it? They didn’t try to cover it up either – he was drinking constantly, and finally Dennis left……It will be interesting to see if David Cassidy will be drinking during the show as well.
