Strange Bedfellows

ABC has cancelled "Welcome to the Neighborhood" amid controversy over the display of bigotry.
"Anger about the series even united the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (which found it 'really disturbing' to watch privileged couples vote out families they don't like) with the Family Research Council (which worried that conservative Christians would appear like overly judgmental buffoons)."
- CNN.com, "What was ABC thinking?"
Christians looking "like overly judgmental buffoons"? Nyaah - no way. This show had no chance, but at least it brought people together - unifying enemies in a common goal to not look stupid or be embarrassed.

I heard about this show,b ut I didn't know it was real! I thought someone was making it up. Makes me glad I don't watch TV

i was actually hoping it would be good - do what it claimed, showed people drop their prejudices *both* ways. but something i read says it might be a one night special later on - i mean, it was a whole completed series, and i'd guess there's a family living in the house now, right? we'll see.

It'll be on a cable station soon. They always pick the maroons for these shows. It drives up ratings. ugh.
