    Nice to see him doing some comedy. His ep sounds cute.

  2. Can’t wait to see President David Palmer showing his soft and comedic side. Hope Haysbert better another TV pilot in the near future since Backstrom failed to pick up as a series by CBS.

    I haven’t made a decision on Trophy Wife. I’m not really a sitcom person because I like deeper character development and deeper storylines but so far I’ve watched every episode. It remains very much a bubble show for me though so depending on the next few episodes, I may or may not stick around.

    I loved President Palmer, but, I’m done with Trophy Wife. I’ll catch him on the Allstate commercials.
