Too much of a threat?
WHY IN THE WORLD HAS THIS EXCELLENT TV PROGRAM BEEN SHELVED? Pretty good chance it was because of political reasons. This series of stunning presidential decision-making opened a door. Viewers could become more politically astute---could realize there are political alternatives. To some people, this show may seem too idealistic, but it told how things could be done "another way"---with savvy and vision, and a real concern for the people---all people. Spilling blood certainly did not take precedence. '

You have to admit, getting it shelved is one way of inflicting invisible censorship---nothing to do with poor ratings.

I, my whole family, neighbors and much of my community were regular watchers of this show. We finally saw people we could refer to as good role models.

Shelved for six weeks pretty well means a death knell, unless enough people speak up. I've written to ABC, but it will take lots of people.
