Wow, lunch with Joe Biden and then TV time? It’ll be nice to kick back and relax a bit after that grueling Hawaiian vacation. And Biden did say he’d be meeting with representatives from Hollywood this week to talk gun control.

So, what’s playing? The White House has invited the cast of “1600 Penn” over for a screening of NBC’s latest mid-season replacement. It’s a comedy set in the Oval Office — the TV show, that is.

Know your place, lapdogs! So what’s so special about this show that warrants a White House invitation? Mid-season replacements are usually the leftovers that didn’t make the cut in the fall.

    This show was prepared to be able to mock President Romney on every issue of the day. Now that Obumbler is back, the show will have no direction to focus the hatred. Naturally they couldn’t mock a half black President.

    oh this is bad, Obama will say he’ll watch the show and so will his drones. After that? we’ll be stuck with it for god knows how long

    pretend show for a pretend president.

    The twitterverse panned it in Dec after a preview on SNF. And has anyone noticed how nearly lily white the cast is? But I suppose all the low-info morons will be tuning in after Obamuh’s endorsement.

    Too lazy to Google, Twitchy? The show was co-created by one of his former speechwriters.

    “1600 Penn”. One the myriad and countless reasons I try to avoid NBC prime time shows like the plague. Hasn’t had a decent series I would stay up for since ‘Hill Street Blues’.

    Oh, isn’t Obama’s flunky, Jeff Immelt associated with NBC and GE?

    From what I saw, they were planning on Romney winning (note the grey hair at the temples). Trying to make fun of the president without actually managing to be funny. If they really wanted a funny show, just write down some Joe Biden’s comments for the script.

    Ditto on the Hill Street Blues comment.
