Subliminal messaging on TV this fall?

We always look forward to the new fall season TV shows and returning ones. I have to wonder if the hit show “Blacklist” will use my image again this season — and I don’t consider it racist to be on The Blacklist. I must admit the only new show that has piqued my interest is Fox’s “Gotham” — Batman is my favorite. However could be some subliminal messaging from two other networks is at work in this new season.

Consider the new show on the Constant Barack Station (CBS) called “Madam Secretary” featuring Tea Leoni — I remember her from a Jurassic Park movie — as the U.S. Secretary of State. Could CBS be trying to keep a certain female in our conscious memory — and y’all know it ain’t Condi Rice. Well, no worries, I’m quite sure CBS President David Rhodes — whose young brother Ben is the Deputy National Security Advisor in the Obama White House — isn’t politically motivated.

I’ll be looking for that episode about Americans being attacked at an embassy and Tea Leoni’s character fast ropes in from a helicopter M4 blazing commanding a Special Ops detachment and rescuing the Ambassador. And when the frightened terrified Ambassador tells Madam Secretary she has been hit she grittily replies, “what difference at this point does it make?”

But not to be outdone, the National Barack Station (NBC) also has a new show featuring Kathleen Heigl as the CIA Director — wonder if she’ll have a prayer rug? And who plays the president? Well, Alfre Woodard, TV’s first black female president. We already had the first black TV president in Dennis Haysbert of Allstate fame. And we even had Jamie Foxx play president — they all can be scripted better than the current president who’s doing a really bad acting job.

So I figure NBC will have President Alfre Woodard work with CIA Director Heigl to arm some Islamist rebels to take down a domestic conservative insurgency and save western civilization. Yep that’s the ticket!

What shows are you looking forward to this Fall? Needless to say thanks to Obama, we’re treated to reruns of “As the World Burns” and “The Twilight Zone” — and forced to binge-watch them both.

Precisely why I DO NOT watch TV.

Lorene Wagner
Guest

Yep, I don’t watch ABC, NBC, or CBS. In fact, television is pretty much NOT a part of my life.

CheetoBuster
Guest

TV watching isn’t high on my priority list. None of these channels have had anything worth watching for years now. Since they all have become so biased and feel the need to push their agenda, why would anyone except a low informed leftist want to watch??

theame19
Guest

I watch sports: Football & baseball, a few shows on FX and the ‘Big Bang Theory. Other than that, I watch FOX news. Anything else is too far fetched to be even close to entertaining.

FIRE THEM ALL- 2014
Guest

I asked the same question when I saw the first commercial for this program. Not sure if I will be watching it at all. I prefer Jack Bauer and 24, with a rogue agent going after bad people.

The Walking Dead and the Last Ship…NFL and NHL…Other than that…Not much

I gave up on them. Too much weird crap about aliens & stuff equally unlikely. I want REAL history!

I thought the same thing about Madam Secretary. . and of course, it will imply that our previous SOS were inept and this woman is wonderful. . . don’t expect the truth about her any more than you have received it about Killary.
The other one? Never heard of it. . but then again if it weren’t for sports I wouldn’t know it existed. Same thing pretty much for All Barack Channel.

Speaking of TV… West, when will we see your confidential informant testify before the Benghazi committee?

Can’t be comparing her to Hillbilly. Tea Leoni is good looking…

Mike Dunger

I expect another blowout episode of The Voting Dead in November.

hurricaneman

I like the bit in the preview clip where Madam Secretary says, “In case you haven’t noticed, I’m not a big one for protocol.” Somehow, I can’t imagine Hillary saying that. If anything she hides behind protocol. But Madam Secretary is the liberal fantasy of what they WANTED Hillary to be, not the ugly truth.
Haven’t seen any previews of the CIA show, but I don’t hold any hope. Liberal TV writers have no clue what the CIA really does. To them it’s all nefarious, illegal black ops.

I love Blue Bloods!!!! Can not believe it is on CBS!!!!!

DD

Just give me my Resurrection and Criminal Minds series, and I’ll be happy–unless they start putting familiar political figures into the story lines!

Have to admit, I wondered about Madam Secretary, but I can’t stand Tea Lioni so there is no chance I would ever watch it! Perhaps she really does remind me so much of Killary.

The only time we tune in to ABC, NBC, or CBS is for sports. Doesn’t sound like we’ve been missing much in the media soap opera.

Ned Nederlander
Guest

There’s no way anyone could see Tea Leoni and think of Hillary Clinton. The former has been one of the best looking women on tv for 2 decades. Hillary the horse would need at least 4 millions dollars of plastic surgery to even be worth a second glance. And we all know how broke the Clintons are…

Maybe they could have an IRS show too (IrRellevant Stupidity) The Libs need these types of shows to cling to. They live in lala land to begin with and scripted deeds of excellence make the realities of liberal existence in an up and coming conservative sweep in November of both the senate and congress seem to be non existant.

Wow. Mr West is easily outraged over things that are happening only in his imagination.

@Brendan…….I really don’t see Mr. West’s outrage here….Perhaps it’s in your “imagination”. His claims here are not just in HIS “imagination”….Sonny…..we are on to the deceptions of you and your ilk.

William Reichold

Brendan , one of those Libtard troll`s I was referring to.

Brendan
Guest

Wow Willy, you couldn’t even spell my name correctly even tough it was right above where you were typing.
And there shouldn’t be an apostrophe in the word “trolls” unless you intended to use it in the possessive, instead of the plural.

just sayin
Guest

Well, since we are going to correct spelling to determine how politically knowledge we are, you may want to correct “tough” because I think you meant to say “though”

William Reichold
Guest

tough? lol, always enjoy the spelling Police spelling their own words wrong while correcting someone else.But I corrected it literall y5 seconds after I posted it, what do you do, sit around hoping people will reply to your stupidity? I know Lib`s don`t have much of a life, but come on man.

tough? your spelling error

Michael

Brendan, before you correct someone else’s spelling, make sure yours is correct. “though” not “tough”.

MmeMoxie

@Michael — Good one!!! Some people have never learned, that when you point a finger, at someone else … 3 fingers are always, pointing back at you!!! In other words, before you point out the “errors” of others, make sure your own “house” is clean. 😀

The instant I saw the ad for Madam Secretary I said “free airtime for Hillary 2016″…and I was Foreign Service from 1985-2011.

Cann Van

yeah but its waaay to late. I will go to sleep knowing, NO ONE I know is voting for her. That is good enough for me. We have a big family, who have big families who all have lotsa friends, everyone is awake. That’s important.

totally subliminal. just about everything on TV is in some fashion. Unfortunately, it’s all for the progressive …rather socialist agenda.

If you’ve not yet become a watcher of “Blue Bloods” – you should try it – wonderful show – practically the only one I watch.

I can’t say that I’d waste my time watching tv shows. I remember shows like The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Laugh In, All in the Family, and MASH which were alleged to be “great shows” but the reality is that every one of them turned out to be leftist propaganda. I’ve tried to stomach tv shows and movies over the years, but just can’t find much worthy of my time. Actually, I think watching grass grow would be a better use of time.

Jim Scholle
Guest

Leftist propaganda? Why bother? I took them for what they were…as comedy TV shows

Guest
Guest

Don’t we see enough of terrorism, etc. on the news without getting on supposedly entertainment shows. Give me “Lucy & Friends” any day. We are tired of killings, etc. which we see in real life all day. Give us a break! It is “in your face” is right.

Sue
Guest

Don’t we see enough killings, etc. on the news all day and night. Give me a program like “Lucy”. We need a break and some relaxation while watching TV in the evenings.

just sayin
Guest

I just turned 50. I Love Lucy…no pun intended. So much that my husband bought me all the seasons as well as The honeymooners. At home we encourage our Daughter to watch the old programming./movies. She seems to enjoy it

Sue

My grandson, now 30, used to watch all of Lucy’s shows when he was young. She was a really good comedienne along with a couple of other women.

JeanluvsCa

I never liked Lucy, except for the candy factory episode. All she ever did was deceive and lie to Desi.

I don’t even watch TV. Not since 1996 have I had cable TV. I have no idea what people are talking about with these shows. I learned that silence is good in my house. My daughter is peaceful and my cable money goes to a kid in Colombia through Compassion International. Free time in evenings I play with the dogs, talk to my wife, or read. Lately the wife and I have been having contests to see who can play the shortest hand of Free Cell solitaire on our tablets. We do want to finish the rest of Braveheart. It… Read more »

The first preview I saw of Madame Secretary I’m pretty sure milk shot out of my nose. The spirit of Hillary Clinton shall be reincarnated as libtards wish and want her to be. The timing is so blatant for a full season to ensconce itself into liberal consciousness a year ahead of the full blast one year election run-up.

Paul Deckelman
Guest
I’m sure “Madam Secretary’s” main character will be terrific – smart, beautiful, honest, principled, brave, generous – a FANTASY secretary of state that liberals will latch onto and fervently, desperately, believe in, as opposed to the reality of Hillary, who is exactly none of those things. Just the same way they latched onto the fictional “President Josiah Bartlet” – played by the ever-pompous and insufferable Martin Sheen – on “Left Wing,” er, “West Wing” – a dream liberal president who (according to hopelessly liberal and cocaine-addicted creator Aaron Sorkin) was supposed to represent the best of JFK, Jimmy Carter and… Read more »

She’ll be a combination Mother Theresa, Albert Einstein, Martin Luther King, Winston Churchill, and Wonder Woman. In other words, to conservatives, it’ll be the hysterically funny sitcom hit of the year.

Lets face it folks, people work, have families, housework..they rely on abc-nbc news. Not anymore! I, me, woke them up. Just as someone woke me up. My One spark ignited all of them to change their voting. (Who knows how far it willl ripple) From Dem to Rebuplican.

There was that episode in history where Mrs. Clinton flew into Kosovo, donned her flack jacket and sprinted across the tarmac to the terminal..under fire!.Oh wait that never actually happened either. Sure made for a few laughs when her fantasy was revealed though.

Paul Deckelman
Guest

Maybe our fictional “Madam Secretary” character’s husband — let’s just call him a former VERY high -ranking government official – will show up in an episode and proceed to put the moves on all of his wife’s younger, attractive female subordinates, hoping to get lucky. Art imitates life!

Tim
Guest

I made the comment last week that they were deliberately trying to make Leoni into an attractive, more acceptable version of the wicked witch Hilary. Sooner or later, people forget reality and use fiction as their frame of reference. While I like Leoni, I hope the show is canceled for terrible ratings by mid-season.

Used to be a TV-aholic. Stopped several years ago. Now, I watch 2 channels, mostly–Fox News, & Soundscapes (one of the Music Choice line-ups). Well, actually, I listen to the latter, mostly. If I want news, Fox & the internet have it. No shows worth watching, in my book. Too much liberalism, gore, sex, scatological language & profanity. Not enough =interesting= shows! They’ve really dropped the ball in TV Land! Sometimes, if I’m just utterly bored, I’ll switch to TCM or maybe SciFi–but even that last has become too rotted & cliche to hold MY interest! Too bad.

You are so right. The only programs I watch on cable are re-runs of ‘The Andy Griffith Show’ & “The Golden Girls’. And, sometimes, PBS & USA networks. I do enjoy NCIS, NCIS LA & looking forward to NCIS New Orleans & of course, FOX News Cable. The rest of TV is trash.

The progressive messaging in TV has been ongoing for a long time now. AGW, GOP bashing, Bush bashing, yada yada yada. When an episode of “Good Wife” dealt with unwarranted phone tapping and use of illegally obtained information by government, the characters merely “dealt with it” rather than sued somebody! And they are a far Left Chicago law firm! (Would have been a very different episode with a GOP pres.) I found it hysterical…and typical. Even when real world events jump up and smack them upside the head, they remain steadfastly in denial. Boy! They just luuuv that river.

Get ready for a combination Mother Teresa, Bill Clinton, and Wonder Woman all wrapped into one pretty political genius. Hillary in 2016…yayyyyy!

Brendan

Wow… what a bunch of America bashing crybabies some of you are.
Oh no! A TV show might portray a US politician we hate in a good light! Waaah!

Well don’t worry crybabies. The first episode just aired tonight and it sucked.
Lame sappy melodramatic soap opera style crap that fails miserably at trying to convey any sense of realism.
This show is garbage… and not because of any politics you think may be associated with it… it’s garbage because it’s just badly written and hokey.
