Fox To Bring A Priest To TV

father albert coming to fox

This summer, Fox TV stations and Debmar-Mercury will test a one-hour "talker" show with Father Alberto Cutie, who left the Catholic Church to get married and have a family, and is now a priest at an Episcopal Church.

Here's what a statement by Debmar-Mercury had to say about the show:

"Father Albert's wide cross-over appeal, incredible story, encouraging advice, open mind and charismatic personality make him a natural fit for daytime television. We are excited to provide English-language audiences with the opportunity to discover why Father Albert has struck such a chord over the past decade with millions of fans throughout the U.S., Canada, Spain and Latin America."

And here's what a Fox Television Group statement had to say about the program:

"This really completes our roster with Debmar-Mercury: Tyler Perry, Wendy Williams, South Park, Jeremy Kyle and, now, a minister. Seriously, daytime television could use a fresh face and a distinctive voice. We believe we've found one in Father Albert Cutie, whose unique perspective makes him perfect for this role."

We can't say we're surprised that Fox would make a move like this.

Guess we'll see if Father Albert brings in the audiences. We're thinking he probs will.

Would U watch a priest on TV?

    What is this CRAP ' We can't say we're surprised that Fox would make a move like this'?????? This is not on FOX NEWS!!! This will be on local fox stations, just as ABC, CBS, and NBC has crap like THE VIEW, THE TALK, SWIFT JUSTICE WITH NANCY GRACE, THE DOCTORS, DR. OZ, etc. etc. etc. etc. ALL GARGAGE, mixed in with a few soaps, so, WHY NOT A DEFROCKED CATHOLIC/NOW EPISCOPAL PRIEST? You switch channels back and forth and you will be INDOCTRINED ON A LITTLE OF A LOT.

    I agree with justtfax….I dont get the negative connotations you gave this perez. So Im supposed to sit back and watch Skins and all that nasty ass bullshit, but Fox cant put a minister on a talk show?

    And yeah its not Fox News!! Its just Fox. Like they said in the quote, theyve had about everything on air…

    I hate to say it but I think your brief stint as a non-bully/open minded Nice Guy is over….youre back to the same old shit.

    Sad day.

    He didn't leave the catholic church to have a family and get married he left because he got caught sleeping with that lady that is his wife now. It was a huge scandal like a year ago or something

    "I was 100% sure I was Catholic. Then I was 100% sure I wanted to bang that hot biddie, now I'm 100% sure I believe in Jesus so I'm Episcopalian."

    Leave it to Fox. I hope people wake the flip up and stop tunning into their ridiculous channel (except for Family Guy, they rule)

    I watch Father Corapi from time to time…He is a very good man. He helps restore the reputation and reject the indiscretions of the Catholic Church by his phenomenal message (and ability to live by it). Hope this priest is a good man as well while not knocking the Catholic Church for not allowing priests to marry.
