Within the main Toobworld, Earth Prime-Time, there is no problem of a Zonk because ‘The West Wing’ takes place in an alternate Toobworld (which is also the home for ‘Smallville’, ‘Mr. Sterling’, ‘Minority Report’, ‘Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip’, and the miniseries ‘Pine Gap’.) This is because Earth Prime-Time must always have the same President of the United States as in the Trueniverse. (You never know when a TV series might reference the POTUS.)
For the final week of every month this year, we’ve been inducting the televersions of real TV shows which also exist in Toobworld as that last Friday Hall of Famer.
With November having a heavy political aura, a political series seemed to be the O’Bvious choice. So we’re walking and talking the perfect candidate into the TVXOHOF:
This list is of shows which refer to ‘The West Wing’ as a TV series within the main Toobworld. We’re excluding shows from other Toobworlds and from Skitlandia and the Tooniverse.
And since this week’s Hall of Famer is also “Black Friday”, kicking off the holiday season, we’ve “decorated” the list with a few Christmassy pictures of ‘The West Wing’ on TV which I found on IMGUR.
