    It all promises to be addictive watching.
  2. 75
    "The West Wing" was more vivid, original and compelling than "Commander in Chief" is likely to become. But impressive Geena Davis and the Oval Office gender twist are indeed refreshing.
  3. 75
    Davis... is very good.
  4. 60
    Maybe Davis will grow into the role. Perhaps Commander in Chief will develop into something deeper than a smooth, self-satisfied show. For now, the series enjoys one important asset: impeccable timing.
  5. Polished and lively, it is also simplistic, melodramatic and half-baked — though it clips along nicely enough that you may not notice.
  6. 40
    Some viewers will be put off by the many unbelievable aspects of ''Commander in Chief," and not least of all by Geena Davis.

    Finally, the best new comedy of the 2005-06 TV season is here... What's that, you say? This is a drama and not a comedy? Oh, dear.
