On the season finale of “1600 Penn,” due to a wedding license mix-up, it turns out President Gilchrist (Bill Pullman) and Emily (Jenna Elfman) aren’t married. You know what that means in sitcom land — quickie White House wedding!
But it can’t be any old wedding. Skip (Josh Gad) decides to flex the golden pipes on Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time,” which it turns out is Becca’s (Martha MacIsaac) birthing song, so it sends her into labor.
The first family rushes to the hospital — after first tracking down D.B. (Robbie Amell) at the mall — and Becca and her baby daddy welcome baby boy. Except D.B. is not the baby daddy. It’s Marshall (Andre Holland), the White House Press Secretary.
Dun dun dun! Unfortunately, fans of the show probably won’t get to see how that turns out. Its ratings are among the lowest for NBC comedies — 80 percent of Zap2it voters say “kill it.” It’s a shame, because the show may have started out not-so-great, but it has grown into a decently funny comedy.
