    "Commander" loses another "Chief" - FilmStew.com March 8, 2006

    Another Commander Leaves Chief

    Steven Bochco will be stepping down from his duties as showrunner on ABC's Commander in Chief, which is set to return in April.

    The Bush administration may be the most secretive in reality, but ABC's Commander in Chief is giving it a run for its money in the fictional dimension. The show has apparently lost…and not lost…another showrunner. Daily Variety reports television veteran Steven Bochco is no longer the day-to-day boss at the show.
    Bochco is, however, still listed as executive producer of the series, and Steven Bochco Productions is still the production company of record. Bochco took over as showrunner early in the run of the series after Rod Lurie exited…but Lurie, too, is still involved with the show.

    Has the show been cancelled?

    I don't see it on the preview schedules for next fall.

    ABC pulls 'Commander in Chief'

    LOS ANGELES, May 2 (UPI) -- ABC TV has put an abrupt term limit on its freshman drama, "Commander in Chief."
    The network Tuesday announced it was pulling the Geena Davis series for the rest of May sweeps and running the newsmagazine "Primetime" in its 10 p.m. Thursday slot for the final three weeks of the season, Zap2it.com reported.
    The series started as one of the most-watched in the fall and Davis won a Golden Globe for her portrayal of the first female U.S. president.
    However, two extended breaks and behind-the-scenes changes as well as a schedule move from Tuesday to Thursday all contributed to a deep slide in ratings.
    "Commander's" three Thursday night shows have averaged about 7.5 million viewers, which means half the viewers who tuned in during the fall are now focused elsewhere, Zap2it.com said.
    ABC said it would probably air the final three episodes sometime during the summer.
