ABC has canceled its freshman series with the controversial title "GCB," which some believed mocked Christians, as it failed to attract enough viewership.

Mock God and Die !
The market works.
Homos are deeply saddened.
Watched one episode out of curiosity, poorly written, cliched, overacted, drama, no one will miss it.
It seemed to be getting way too close to exposing the Democrats is the only reason I can see for it’s cancellation. Far too many try to hide under the “Christian umbrella”.
Maybe the show just sucked.
Good, now I will submit my idea for a show,
Good Muslum Bitches.
No? You say the networks will never have the cajoles?
You just raised my interest in the show now that it is too late for me.
Never saw one episode because I forgot the show ever existed. Apparently, I didn’t miss anything.
If they did, they'll wind up not having any heads.
My sister, who along with her husband, is very liberal, loved it. I said I wouldn’t watch a show that disparaged Christians. She said I was a prude. Love her but we really are pretty much opposites.
This was a bad use of electrons and should have never come on the airwaves.
“Mocked” Christians? It flat-out INSULTED Christians!
Viewers should always remember ABC as the network that tried to sell this poison. That it failed is in no way to the network’s credit, but to the fact that even in today’s toxic atmosphere, viewers are not interested in a show called “Good Christian B_tches”.
Yet Hollywood will spend big money on military, Christian, gun owner, energy use bashing flicks; knowing that it’s money down the drain; just so they can feel good about trying.
Maybe Logo will pick up the show.
Hollywood burns millions trying to trash conservatives and Christians....and they lose big every time.
” Yet Hollywood will spend big money on military, Christian, gun owner, energy use bashing flicks; knowing that its money down the drain; just so they can feel good about trying.”
If you're going to rely on 'the market' to uphold Christian standards of behavior I've got some news for you.
What does GCB mean so I can be appropriately offended?
Love her, yes,
but understand she’s working for the “other team”.
And I don’t mean the democRats. See tagline.
I think you meant frijones.
>Good Muslum Bitches.<
That show will never fly.
Who wants to watch a bunch of moving burqas and occasionally some raghead moving among them hitting them with a switch?
Of course there are those among us who relish a realistic stoning scene once in awhile just before dinner. Those who expect a happy ending will be sorely disappointed.
Nah, it will never fly.
What Mr. Amarth really means is b*lls but he is too much of a gentleman to mention it on FR.
The market is not responsible for upholding Christian standards. But the market will punish those bigots who feel free to trash standards of a group in a way that is not shared by a large number of folks. The producers thought they were cute - the people said “it’s not really that funny.”
You could have countered: would she watch a show that made fun of blacks, homosexuals, or Muslims?
Who was the target audience?
Probably, if they created a show simular to The Andy Griffith Show. Basically, with quirky but good natured folks, with an occasional moral lesson, it would be gold.
I did, and I am. lol
Everyone in my family loves “The Andy Griffith show” even my teenage daughters.
Good to see you are still with us! Been a long time... those Seattle folk must be keeping you real busy I bet!
Just call it, "CSI: Mayberry"
What we gonna do right now is go back...way back...as we go a little somethin’ like thiiiiiis...
I know that sometimes supply creates its own demand. Im not sure all that many people were, even secretly, harboring desires for Sex And The City: Dallas Edition.

...Yay, me. I figured that thing would have trouble making it past 13 weeks. I should have put money on it.
All money is fungible. The Hollywood-Media Complex will simply move the money from this failed effort into a different front in their 50 year war against Christianity.
ABC is waking up to market realities. Maybe the MSM will be next - then again maybe they’d rather go under...
Mind the tagline, it’s a true story. I worked with a lad that was always mocking Christians, and Christianity. He is a devout liberal atheist. As he was mocking Christians one day I asked him “why don’t you ever mock Islam and Muslims?” without even thinking about it he blurted out “Muslims are violent.”
It didn’t just mock Christians. It mocked Texans too. And of course, mocking Texas and other “red states” is back in vogue among the idiotic Obama leftists.
Ironically, my church-going Christian neighbors are the ones that told me about the show’s premiere when it was called “Good Christian Bitches”...and they seemed to think it was funny. I found that to be pretty amazing, considering how demeaning it was. Maybe they just aren’t bright enough to discern ridicule when they see it.
At least he's honest about it.
The GCBs of Hillside Park Presbyterian are praying for Amanda Vaughn--or so they claim. Will their evil gossip destroy her reputation, or will she show them exactly how to turn the other cheekSo the series is really about women's cat-fighting, but the writers felt compelled to make it about Christianity. They lose.
Amanda Vaughn needs some heaven-sent help. Shes divorced her cheating husband and fled, along with her two teenagers, back to her hometown, Hillside Park, a Dallas suburb so upper-class that the question isnt where to bank, but whose family owns the bank. Amanda is thrilled to be back in Texasafter twelve years in Southern California, shes ready to leave behind her shallow, Godless life and return to the welcoming Christian world where she grow up. Or at least thats the plan . . .
But when she arrives, shes met with some Texas-sized trouble. Her old friends, neighbors, and fellow church members treat Amanda like a long-lost friend . . . until her back is turned. Then the claws come out. Amanda finds herself trapped in a world of salacious rumors, secret affairs, and Bible-study sessions gone terribly wrong. And whats even more puzzling is that a secret admirer is sending Amanda lavish gifts. Why, she wonders, would anyone send a Mercedes when a simple dinner invitation would do?
Packed with schemes, drama, and a Southern setting more fun than a barbecue at Southfork, Good Christian Bitches has humor, sass, and an unforgettable cast of characters.
Allegedly the show’s star, Kristin Chenowith, proclaims that she is a Christian in real life.
Maybe they should try the opposite line of thought and produce a show that encourages people turn to faith instead of turning away.
Before reading The Harbinger, I had no idea how close to the edge we truly are and why.
We, especially the Hollywood types, don't have many second chances left.
“poorly written, cliched, overacted, drama, no one will miss it.”
That describes almost everything on TV these days.
Letting gay’s write all the shows on TV sure has turned out to be the death of hollyweird.
Yeah....well....a LOT of folks ‘claim’ to be Christians. And a lot of those same folks are fine with abortion, including partial or late term abortions, and are fine with legalizing same sex marriage and other things considered abominations in the Bible. They are only fooling themselves.
I would ask Chenowith how she’d feel if all of the Christian references were switched to Muslim instead. I’m sure her “”Christianity”” would forbid such a spectacle....lol.
Who knew, a hundred years ago, that we in America would have our “Sodom and Gomorrah” (San Francisco and Los Angeles). God only knew.
No, it's actually about Dallas. Ever been there? ; )
