Meanwhile, on The West Wing's "In the Room," things heat up with the upcoming presidential campaign and also the current President's health crisis, making for an enjoyable watch. Plus, Alan Alda!
Next week, we'll watch One Day at a Time's "Benefit with Friends" and West Wing's "Impact Winter."
Join parenting and education writers Terri Mauro, Catherine Holecko, and Nicole Eredics for daily chats on parenting teens and young adults (and a little TV-watching too).
