Good Christian Belles? More like God, what a Crash and Burn!

    I'm a Christian but I love it! Anyone can be made fun of, chill people lol. They should make one about atheists too, now that would be funny ;). Oh yea, I listen to lil wayne, 30 seconds to mars and I have pre marital sex. Where all sinners and that's what makes life fun. Haha

    LOVED it!! thought it had the wry humor of Season 1 Desperate Housewives. Thank goodness I live in Australia where content isn't determined by the moral majority! Although if it does get canned in the US we don't get to watch it either. The Christians I know here have a pretty good sense of humor...hope it's the case in the States too!

    Really? New York Magazine Vulture says GCB (Good Christian Bitches) had a decent rating--not phenomenal, but certainly not "crash and burn."

    The demo ratings for GCB were pretty good, 2.2, and they held 88% of the Desperate Housewives key demo audience; best numbers in 5 months (bad news for Pan Am). Good Wife had the lowest ratings in the demo ever, at a 1.8. With the cable shows ramping up for arrival within the month, things will get even more unsteady.

    Guess Im not a devout christian, or maybe Im just a big fan of Kristin Chenoweth, but I loved the show. Though it seems lately that any new show I like is cancelled.

    Good Christian Belles. GCB was supposed to be short for Good Christian Bitches.

    Yeah but that doesn't mean automatic cancellation. They can still get better. Obviously the more devout christian abandoned the show due to its content.
