NBC has cancelled the Aiden Quinn drama about a pill-popping priest with a gay son that met fire from conservative Christian groups. Naturally, groups such as Focus on the family and the American Family Association are gloating.
AFA Chairman Donald E. Wildmon said NBC’s decision to cancel the program is instructive.
“This shows the average American that he doesn’t have to simply sit back and take the trash being offered on TV, but he can get involved and fight back with his pocketbook,” he said.
Of course, if you know Hollywood you know they only pray to one God: the green one, and the real reason the show was axed was, like 90 % of shows lucky enough to make it to the air, that it wasn’t bringing in the book of numbers, so to speak. Still, it’s always sad to see a quality show end, even if it did star the guy from Desperately Seeking Susan.
