A political drama following a Cabinet member who is appointed President after a deadly attack on the Capitol.
After a deadly explosion kills the President and members of the Cabinet on the night of the State of the Union address, the nation is suddenly left without a Commander in Chief.
Tom Kirkman, the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, had been named the designated survivor and is therefore the next in the chain of command. He is promptly sworn in as President, though he has no way of knowing that the catastrophic attack was only the beginning of a much larger plan.

Sadly I don't see this show lasting, maybe a second season, but I don't see it lasting for a long haul.

Any show that takes a break should inform us of when it will be back. not just stop and leave us hanging. Love this show. MKL&ML

Better than the 24:Legacy rehash....sorry Kiefer - I think you are an Exec Producer on that one....I guess I expected something more -- like "24" which I watched faithfully all the way thru. Now THAT was a show! But yes, I really do like this new one, Designated Survivor. Gonna keep watching.

I love this show Kiefer is a great actor. I want more of this show! Good ideal about guest staring the father. Add other actors for more story lines.

This is the new format for TV. Shows run half a season then a limited series event series or mini series replaces after the holidays then shows wrap up in time for summer. It has nothing to do with the show it's quality etc.

Thought the purpose of having a 'series' of television shows was to watch them on some kind of a regular basis. If Designated Survivor does return, I won't be watching it. 3-4 months off, on for a few weeks, then off for an indefinite period of time ruins the experience.

Left-leaning or NOT, I love the show. I pray it hasnt been cancelled. Sad it hasnt aired for the last few weeks.

When will the next episode be aired - have not seen an episode since before Christmas - seems an odd way to keep show loyalty
