Apparently One Million Moms cannot be bothered to check things like, oh, ratings. As has been reported, ABC canceled the show GCB. The reason- low ratings. For a network like ABC, hitting only about 1.8 million viewers per episode in the key 18-45 demographic is troubling. So, of course, the axe was dropped on the show.
One Million Moms, though, sent out this:
HUGE Victory! The ABC series “GCB,” which is known for its controversial title and nasty portrayal of Christians, has been canceled!
“GCB” got axed by ABC and won’t be coming back for a second season. Praise the Lord! Jesus Christ will not be mocked! God is using OneMillionMoms.com to help remove this filth from television. As the hands and feet for the Lord, we are making a real difference.
These accomplishments are the result of the Lord’s blessing on the prayers, action alerts, email letters, and gifts from concerned and generous supporters.
Would you help us to continue these important efforts?
What kind of country are we going to leave our children and grandchildren if we don’t fight for our values? We may not win all the battles, but we will win some. But I sure don’t want to give our country over without a fight and I know you don’t either. We depend heavily on donations. Your gift is greatly needed for OMM to remain strong!
Have you ever noticed how these “huge victories” always seem to come from totally unrelated events? I mean, not long ago, Bill Donohue of the Catholic League was busy crowing over Delta Airline’s decision to pull their ads from The Daily Show about a month after he called for a boycott of the show. Of course, it has been months since anyone had seen a Delta commercial on The Daily Show anyway. Delta simply made official what was already happening.
This is not a victory for OMM, not really. They are just so desperate to actually have a victory that they have to manufacture one out of unrelated events.
