I just came from lurking at a DJE forum and saw the news. Many, many fans are upset because "ABC didn't have a backbone in standing up to the protesting Christians" and because of that it "took DJE away" from their TVs.


Hmm. Well, then. :roll:

As a Catholic, I can say that the show probably was very insulting, but I don't think the "protests" from the Christians had everything to do with the cancellation. I'm sure the ratings played a factor.

I called this way before the show even started. I knew it wouldn't last.

I say it was the ratings, too, though I've never watched.

The two or three previews that I saw let me know it wasn't something I wanted to watch, and obviously I wasn't the only one who felt this way.

I know it was in the list I posted about to tell of The Secret Circle being canceled, and I wasn't surprised.

I remember someone saying that ABC wanted GCB to replace DH after the series finale. I don't think GCB had the slightest chance to compare to DH. Completely different shows, IMO. (Even though I've only seen a handful of DH)

Wow.

I think lots of people would have turned against ABC if they'd have done that. It's hard to replace a very popular show after it has finished its run.
