ABC May Need a Good Christian Bitch Slapping

Am I angry that ABC is airing a show on Sunday nights called GCB, a thinly veiled acronym for Good Christian Bitches, the title of the book on which the new series is based. The B does not stand for Belles.

No, I'm angry that GCB is the midseason replacement for Pan Am, a show that I was actually looking forward to watching every Sunday night. That was a great show, and I hope it finds a place on the schedule.

Here's what you missed on Pan Am:

You've got to love Kelli Garner as Kate Cameron who just picks up the pistol and shoots the commie spy. Oh, the lost innocence of being a stewardess in the early 1960s. If you're not shooting a commie, your copilot's girlfriend is planting you with a lesbian kiss.

ABC might as well have called the new GBC series Desperate Dallas Baptist Housewives. ABC clearly is looking for a show to fill the shoes of Desperate Housewives, which is in its 8th and last season. I never cared for that show either.

As far as GCB, what can you say about a show that takes the beautiful Kristin Chenoweth and turns her into a woman who looks like her plastic surgeon messed up the last operation.

I suppose it would not have passed if it would have been Good Pakistani Bitches or Good Negro Bitches, I think Good Jewish Bitches would have worked however.
Some people are just more equal than others.

Over at NBC they are having a lot of laughs by making Kenny, the Christian character, the network censor. At least that show is funny.
