Jenna Elfman touched by ‘overwhelmingly positive response’ to ‘1600 Penn’

The Twittersphere wasn’t kind to “1600 Penn” when NBC dusted off the comedy in December to serve as a mid-season replacement. The show, co-created by Jon Lovett, a former speechwriter for President Obama, got a high-profile boost this week when it enjoyed a special screening in the real-life White House. Jenna Elfman, who stars as the first lady, tweeted her thanks today for the “overwhelmingly positive response” to the show.

To be fair, a lot of people seem to have enjoyed tonight’s episode, but “overwhelming” might be stretching things a bit. Maybe Elfman is tweeting in character, and as first lady has reviews like these screened out by staff members.

So what was the #logline for 1600 Penn: A family with so many problems and they live in the White House. #NBC exec., “I’m sold.”

Good lord 1600 Penn is a horrible show but it does make the Obama administration look competent.

Maybe that’s the reason for the White House screening.
