Airs Sunday 4/3

Us Rating: *1/2

The controversial miniseries about America's famed political dynasty lands with a thud. As iconic first lady Jackie Kennedy, Katie Holmes pouts Dawson's Creek-style, failing to capture her magic. Worse, her dynamic with JFK is muddled by rote depictions of historical events and tawdry scenes of his womanizing and drug use (he gets a shot from "Dr. Feelgood"). (Reelz Channel, 8 P.M.)
