"The Book of Daniel" is closed, done, kaput.

Read the outpouring of grief over the cancellation of The Book of Daniel.

Apparently, it was Evangelical Right-Wing Extremist Censorship that shut down the show.

Huh. I thought networks shut down shows because of bad ratings.

    Given their increased popularity at Hot Topic, I think that’s part of the reason for the (3rd!) reissue of this title on DVD.

    Ah, Hot Topic. The conformist mall store for non-conformists everywhere.

    Hmmmm. I guess this means that the Right Wingers closed down “Emily’s Reasons Why Not” and are responsible for the lack of sequels to “Gigli.”

    Maybe they aren’t all that bad after all…

    On a more serious note, I’m waiting for the flood of protesters that will actually claim they had anything to do with this show tanking, just to balance the inaccurate understanding of boycotting entertainment.

    Sigh.

    “Apparently, it was Evangelical Right-Wing Extremist Censorship that shut down the show.”

    Amy Welborn posted this link, too. I wondered over there what sort of reation Jack Kenny might get if he re-worked the show for next season as “The Book of Mohammed” . . .
