CITIZEN-PATRIOT — NBC cancels controversial show

January 26, 2006

“The controversial show (‘The Book of Daniel’)…was canceled Tuesday. …Gary Glenn, president of the Michigan chapter of the American Family Association, said pressure from his and other Christian- or family-based groups is the real reason why the show was cast out. ‘I think this proves to Christians and other people of faith that they don’t just have to sit back and take it,’ Glenn said. ‘If they take the time to get involved and effectively send a message, that determines what we watch on television.'”

NBC cancels controversial show

by Aaron Foley

Plagued with low ratings, the gods at NBC decided “The Book of Daniel” should be smote.
The controversial show about a priest with several problems, ranging from a gay son to an alcoholic wife, was canceled Tuesday.

When the show premiered, six NBC affiliates chose not to air it. By Tuesday, several more stations had already pulled it.

“I think programs live and die by their ratings,” said Mike King, vice president and station manager of WILX-Channel 10. “A bad program is going to get bad ratings and eventually be pulled.

“The viewers have spoken — they’re not interested in it.”

Gary Glenn, president of the Michigan chapter of the American Family Association, said pressure from his and other Christian- or family-based groups is the real reason why the show was cast out.

“I think this proves to Christians and other people of faith that they don’t just have to sit back and take it,” Glenn said. “If they take the time to get involved and effectively send a message, that determines what we watch on television.”

While “Daniel” shalt not be airing, “Law & Order” disciples can rejoice — an episode of the crime drama will air in its place at 10 p.m. Friday.
