Designated Survivor Dismisses ‘Thoughtful Conservatives’ As ‘Unicorns'

June 11th, 2019 7:00 AM
ABC’s Designated Survivor almost faced cancellation last year until Netflix surprisingly saved the series. Considering the show already featured awful jabs at Republicans and America’s “gun problem” when it was on network television, pushing it to a streaming site with less restrictions meant nothing but trouble. Sure enough, Designated Survivor is not only worse than before but one of the most…

September 7th, 2018 6:08 PM
The canceled ABC prime-time show Designated Survivor lived up to its name when the series was picked up this week by Netflix, which ordered a truncated third season of 10 episodes starting in 2019. Conservative viewers had hoped that the participation of Kiefer Sutherland – the actor and producer who portrayed heroic counter-terrorism agent Jack Bauer for eight seasons on the popular Fox program…

‘Designated Survivor’ Now Proposes Presidential Indictment

May 10th, 2018 12:53 AM
You might recall that ABC’s Designated Survivor was one of many shows this season that have offered up a plot involving the removal of a president from office. Now, the series has changed tactics by simply introducing a potential indictment to tarnish the president's administration and dissuade him from running for reelection. One way or another, I guess liberals are determined to take down a…

ABC Drama: Terrorist Revealed as Libertarian Wanting 'Free Enterprise'

May 3rd, 2018 1:41 AM
Now that the matter of presidential removal has been covered, ABC’s Designated Survivor can go back to what it’s best at: promoting the liberal agenda. When it’s not overtly defending liberal values, the show usually spends time demeaning political opponents, and this week’s story is probably the dumbest attack I’ve seen this season. Forget ISIS or even Antifa, the real threat to our nation’s…

GOP Rep Exposed as 'Self-Serving Traitor' on ‘Designated Survivor'

March 1st, 2018 1:14 AM
When it comes to liberal shows, the rule of thumb seems to be that no matter how bad the situation is, Republicans are still the worst. Even in a life-threatening scenario, Republicans can always find a way to make it worse. ABC’s Designated Survivor takes this to an extreme with a Republican congressman in a disastrous hostage situation on foreign soil.

Liberal ABC Show Surprises With Patriotic Defense of the U.S.

November 30th, 2017 12:46 AM
For this past fall season, ABC’s Designated Survivor hasn’t been too shy about its liberal bias. From gun control arguments to racism to Republican slamming, there is no question where the show stands politically. However, when it comes to the United States overseas, President Kirkman might just lean a little to the right.  

'Designated Survivor' Finds Racism in Pandemics, Drugs, Capitalism

October 12th, 2017 9:16 AM
After two pretty straightforward, non-controversial episodes, the third episode of ABC’s Designated Survivor’s second season suddenly packed three episodes worth of liberal politics into one. Wednesday’s episode “Outbreak” had everything, from a deadly superbug, to an evil pharmaceutical company, to a Confederate statue debate, to a “sexually ambiguous” frog.

'Designated Survivor' Finale Takes Parting Shot at Trump, Conservative

May 18th, 2017 3:37 PM
Wow, is liberal Hollywood predictable or what? Back in early November, when all indications were that it was an Islamic terrorist group that bombed the U.S. Capitol and took out the entire government during the State of the Union (except, of course, designated survivor then-Housing and Urban Development Secretary Tom Kirkman), I predicted the mid-May ending of ABC’s Designated Survivor.

ABC’s 'Designated Survivor' is a Mouthpiece for Gun Control

April 9th, 2017 1:55 AM
The Wednesday, April 5, episode of ABC’s conspiracy drama, Designated Survivor, may as well have been written by the Brady Campaign, or any one of Michael Bloomberg’s consortium of anti-Second Amendment organizations. For those unfamiliar with Kiefer Sutherland’s new role as President Tom Kirkman, he seems to have done a complete 180 from his days as 24’s Jack Bauer.

For the second time this season, President Kirkman on ABC’s Designated Survivor has been compared to President Ronald Reagan. On Wednesday's episode, "Warriors," Kirkman is recovering from a sniper assassination attempt.

In my previous installment chronicling 2016's most outrageous instances of liberal bias in scripted primetime television, I talked about how some entertainment programming from the broadcast networks often featured some of the most in-your-face political lectures Hollywood puts out. 

Saturday Funnies: Jack Bauer Interrogates Santa

This may be about a week early, but it's way too much fun to wait. The good folks at Rebel Christmas Card 2009 have created a fabulous video short of America's favorite counter-terrorism agent Jack Bauer interrogating Santa Claus. Before Bauer begins using his knife to find out what Santa is doing in the country, Claus marvelously says, "Think about what you're doing, Jack. No present for you…
