This show premieres September 21. I'm going to check it out. I like Kiefer Sutherland and I think the premise has potential. I think I will enjoy the initial crisis and the immediate aftermath, I just hope the show will be able to keep my interest after that has passed.

I'd be more excited if this was a mini-series but I'll check it out

I'm on board. Kiefer Sutherland? Political intrigue? Thriller/suspense? I'm there!

Re: Designated Survivor - ABC Wednesday

I've always loved Kiefer Sutherland, since the "Brat Pak" days.

This series also stars, Maggie Q. Some of you may remember her from the series of a year ago, Stalker.

She's going to play an FBI agent that's tasked with finding out who's involved with the bomb assassinations. Her background gives me a Quantico vibe.

But, with Sutherland involved and his background with 24, I'm on board.

Re: Designated Survivor - ABC Wednesday

I'm planning on watching...love Kiefer Sutherland.


Is that a real thing? Do they actually have a designated survivor in real life?

Yep, and his role would be 12th. There's a whole written order of who would fall into President, given enough unfortunate circumstances.

Well hello Mattie! So glad you're back.

So, what did you think about the second "designated survivor"? I don't think she was a cabinet member, so I don't get how she could have really been a "designated survivor".

IMO, this was another great episode. Sutherland continues to impress me -- maybe I'll write his name in this year.
