This should be a real winner. Why do they continue to do this? But then again, why is "Jersey Shore" such a ratings bonanza? Oh, Well.

How come no one greenlights a series called “Stupid Liberal Whores”?

I guess “Good Muslim Bitches” didn’t appeal to them... nor does beheading.

Because it already has the name "ABC News" or is it "CBS News" ? No wait, I think it's called "MSNBC News".

I saw an article where the band “New Pornographers” had a show cancelled at Calvin College because of the name.

http://www.mlive.com/entertainment/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2010/09/calvin_college_cancels_the_new.html

Yet there is a civic owned theater in Houston with a band booked with the F-word in their name.

http://www.pollstar.com/resultsVenue.aspx?ID=9620&SortBy=Date

Such is the culture.

Idiocracy, here we come (recall what Fuddruckers eventually became)...

Okay okay. I’m at least as offended as the next person but lets read the article.
“....dramedy based on Kim Gatlin’s book Good Christian Bitches. The untitled project, which will be written by Steel Magnolias and The First Wives Club scribe Robert Harling, has received a rich put pilot commitment by ABC after the network and CBS went down to the wire in their pursuit of the dramedy.”
So its the books name they are adapting it from. The project is still untitled. I myself will never have anything to do with the author.

Good Christian Bitches is the devilishly fun, yet strikingly honest, tale of Amanda Vaughn, a recently divorced mother of two. To get a fresh start, she moves back to the affluent Dallas neighborhood where she grew up. In an Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Desperate Housewives on steroids style, her old friends are already out to destroy her reputation. In the whirling midst of salacious gossip, Botox, and fraud, Amanda turns to those who love her and the faith she’s always known. Will the Good Christian Bitches get the best of her, or will everyone see that these GCBs are as counterfeit as their travel jewelry?

If it weren't for football, FoxNews or Deadliest Catch I would not own a television.

About the Author

Kim Gatlin

Dallas native Kim Gatlin has spent most of her professional life in the fields of charitable fundraising and commercial real estate title sales.

In Good Christian Bitches, Kim puts a voice to the downside of gossip in a light-hearted piece of fiction but with a message that she hopes will resonate with women everywhere.

Like the feisty, charismatic women in Good Christian Bitches, Kim and the women in her life are bold, sassy and strong. She counts her mother, sister, girlfriends, cousin and two steadfast Southern Baptist grandmothers in that group—all women who use these traits as assets and gifts.

As an advocate for numerous charitable organizations, Kim is committed to fundraising for a variety of causes including the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation where she sits on the board, Crystal Charity Ball, Alzheimer’s Association, Dallas Cattle Baron’s Ball benefiting the American Cancer Society, and Children’s Medical Center Women’s Auxiliary.

Kim lives in the Park Cities area of Dallas with her two children.
Good Christian Bitches is her first book.

They wouldn’t do this if it was insulting to Muslims.

This is ABC giving the middle finger to Christians.

“Stupid Liberal Whores”

Because - who is interested in a show that is just about everyday life?

Oh -wait... Seinfeld survived how many seasons?

After comments made by Supreme Court Justice Breyer, all we Christian have to do is to incite enough violence and the government will shut this down.

Does he really want to live in a society like that?

“Holmes on Homes,” “Burn Notice” and many (but not all) old movies, too, on TCM.

It’s getting close to being a toss up.

However, the intel is pretty good on some news shows. In doses, of course.

The Net, Hulu and DVDs are looking more appealing though.

I don’t have the time for sitcoms or drama shows. If it’s not football, news or a damn good documentary like Deadliest Catch I’ve got better things to do with my time than watch the stupid box.

I have to admit, the Hurricane Katrina coverage was some of the most entertaining television I’ve ever watched. Especially when Shep Smith’s mascara started to run from his weeping.

Translation: Shallow, narcissistic, and obnoxious.

And they wonder why men bang 'em and run.

Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.
