Who cares. If you don't want to watch the show (which you have probably never watched in the first place), then turn the channel. We need to loosen up a bit otherwise we're no better than the freak'in towel heads who want to destroy the western work because some newspaper printed a characture of Mohommad.

I think a lot of us are tired of "loosening up." It's time for them to give a little now.

I couldn't agree more. T.V.s have an off button. Turn it off and stop demanding that everyone conform to your rules. If the networks lose you as part of the audience, their profits will dwindle and they will cater to you again.

But every time you guys get rattled and whine like a bunch of pansy liberals who were forced to hear the word 'Jesus', you merely give free publicity to who/whatever it is you're trying to get cancelled.

Next, their shows are seen as 'important political statements that test the boundaries of society under censorship' rather than people whoring themselves out for a laugh. As a result, you're martyring these idiots instead of decreasing demand for their drivel.

There's nothing wrong with moral outrage. It worked on the Mapes, Rather and Kerry crap. Keep in mind too that what one generation condones, the next practices.

otherwise we're no better than the freak'in towel heads who want to destroy the western work because some newspaper printed a characture of Mohommad.

Sorry. You're off base. We protest with our pocketbooks. They take to the streets with violence. The two do not compare. They aren't talking boycotts.

Well, I was planning on making your exact comment. Thanks for saving me the trouble.

That's an utterly uninformed comment. There's a lot of difference between writing a letter of protest and storming an embassy and taking hostages.

Are you nuts?

There's no moral equivocation in this case between a Christian boycott of a program and Muslim violence over a cartoon.

It's offensive and inappropriate. WE care...

But you needn't worry -- Nobody'll stop you from resuming watching your W&G reruns and sipping a big ol' mug of chamomile tea.

Well beside the fact that NBC has been advertising the 'final episodes' as this show will be going off the air at the end of the season. Of course once it does, I imagine 'conservatives' will claim they had somethng to do with that as well. I've watched the show a few times and I just don't like it. But I'm not going to bother writing a network about a show that already is planning to go off the air.
