GCB Is Canceled!

Poor Kristin Chenoweth! First Pushing Daisies and now this??

ABC disappointed Cheno (again) by canceling the lovely Gawd fearing ladies of GCB!!

The heartbreaking news came late last week. Members of the Texas-based comedy's cast are puuurdy depressed.

Mark Delkin (they guy who plays Blake) tweeted the bad news to his followers, writing:

“Wow. I feel stunned & sad. We have had an amazing ride and you, the #GCB fans and #Blicket shippers, have been just incredible. THANK YOU all for your beautiful love and loyalty.”

There is some hope still left in the world!

The network recently announced Revenge, Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and Once Upon a Time were all picked up for another season each.

Keep your chin up, Cheno! We have no doubt you'll be back on the small scree very soon!

    GCB was horrible. I am a big fan of Kristin Chenoweth. But not even her charms or Leslie Bibbs beauty could save this train wreck.



  2. 2

    One Million Moms was the driving force behind getting it cancelled.



  3. 3

    I am shocked. I was under the impression that the show was a hit. I never watched, but it seemed like a cute concept. Maybe it would've had a better shot on a smaller, cable network. That's where all the good tv is going anyways!

    Seriously? The show was hilarious! I was bummed about Desperate housewives going off the air but then this show came on and i thought that it would be a great replacement for Sunday nights.

    I seriously hope ABC didn't cave to a bunch of hypochristians.



  5. 5

    Well, crap! I really got a kick out of that show :-(



  6. 6

    I really liked this show. I'm pretty upset about this. SAVE GCB!



  7. 7

    Ditto what Tom said. Love Cheno, but GCB was an insult. They couldn't sustain the whole southern biatch 'mean girls' schtick anyway.. it was so stupid.

    Good! It was offensive!! I like Kristin for sure, but the show was extremely offensive…in its title alone.

  18. Cristian says – reply to this

    I hope they reconsider their decision… it's a great show…



  19. 19

    ABC is losing touch with it's watchers. GCB started out ok, but took a turn for the worse, and just got dull and too far fetched. Sad desperate housewives is going off the air.. been my long time favorite. Jumped the grays anatomy ship when their plot lines just became too unrealistic. as for revenge, this season was Ok.. but i cant say it grabbed my attention enough to consider it a must see, more like something to watch when you are clearing out your DVR



  20. 20

    I switched the channel soon as Housewives was over. Will miss that show, could care less about this one.

  21. JulesNYC says – reply to this


    21

    What the what!! This show was great…ugh, I can't believe they are cancelling it :(



  22. 22

    Why this show was canceled and Body of Proof was renewed will forever be remembered as one of the greatest mysteries of the world. Body of Proof had horrendous ratings while GCB maintained its average ratings week after week.

    It will surely be missed. GCB was a wonderful show with an awful name.

  26. rose says – reply to this


    26

    I'm so glad it was canceled! It was offensive. I'm so glad ABC knows what it's viewers want and still cares enough about peoples religion and not just money. I'm sure they will come up with a great show that is for everyone. Thank you ABC! Good for you!

    31

    I was really disappointed that ABC cancelled PAN AM and then to cancel GCB as well?!?!?!?! I thought that these would both be great replacements for the departure of Desperate Housewives. ABC is really losing their audience by toying with us for a half dozen episodes of this and that and then cancelling them and leaving us in the dark!
    What are you going to give us to replace the Housewives ABC? It best be good or I will be deleting ABC from my favorites and tuning in elsewhere…

    35

    By the way you guys the book was actually called Good Christian Bitches so the network wasn't the one trying to be offensive if y'all want to place blame about the name take it up with the author of the book. Anyways, ABC changed the title to Belles instead of Bitches before just having it called GCB. Just thought I would put that little bit of information out there. People get your story straight before posting something on the Internet.

    36

    I am so in love with this show and it hurts to hear it's cancelled. I mean it was hilarious and just silly to watch. I looked forward to it after a long day at work. ABC has to bring it back because it's one of the few good shows they have.

  37. Rick says – reply to this


    37

    ABC is a terrible network. That was the curse of GCB. Any other network would have kept it bc it ha solid ratings. Abc ruined housewives and is in the process of ruining Revenge. They put their shows on hiatus every other week an people lose interest. Perhaps a cable network will pick it up. No one watches network anyway.



  38. 38

    I'm devastated. I fell in love with this show. I stopped watching desperate hw's 2 seasons ago it became lame. GCB is funny, sweet and I love the characters. Sigh. I thought I would have this one around for a while.

  39. Cynthia says – reply to this


    39

    I want GCB back. The actors were amazing. The show was so great. Who the hell is making these poor decisions? Bring the show back. I wonder if this has to do anything with those sensitive religouse people. Relax! For crying out loud. It's just a show. It was funny.

    i am so disappointed that GCB was cancelled…..i could watch this show and seemed all my problems left, such humor …brought such laughter, i looked forward to sunday nights…..



  45. 45

    It was trying too hard to be the Christian "Glee' as good as Chenoweth is, the show SUCKED. Bad writing totally moronic & stupid. As was Bent & several other shows that got canned. Canned for good reason they were crap shows. Chelsea Handler's was THEEE Dumbest. How about some original writing in Hollywood & maybe fishing for new stars, new faces & people who are refreshing. Forget the samo samo tv stars BOOO RRIINNNG. I mean Fran Drescher sure she is great but Joey Lawrence? Sara Michelle Geller??? Come on can we live in world that these folks don't have some cheesy unfunny sitcom? Ummm yes I think we can.

    When will Hollywood learn that they are only a small slice of our society and do not represent most of Americans. Most of our country are not anti-christian gay loving people. Thanks One Million Moms!!!! You are getting another big check from me!

    48

    Re: Turned40 – that's exactly what i thought! i loved this show and thought it was the perfect replacement for dh….abc sucks! and seriously, i hate one million moms, if you don't like it, don't turn it on.

  49. Rina says – reply to this


    49

    I don't even get this. I thought GCB was going to be the new Desperate Housewives…only with lots of talent, class and more interesting stories than DH could ever hope to have. It was a beautiful show! As a native Texan, born and raised in Houston and a Christian woman, I was absolutely in love with the show. It even made me want to move to Dallas for some reason and I can't stand that backwards town! It's just ridiculous that they would cancel such a clever show. It had so much potential! If ABC doesn't have the balls to run it they need to give it over to another station that DOES have the balls. I don't even know what I am going to do with my sunday evenings now. I happily tuned into OUAT and GCB religiously (lol). ABC has burned me for the last time!

    I can't believe they would cancel such a great show as GCB but renew such shxt as Revenge, Grey's and Scandal. Those are some of the worst pieces of garbage I've ever seen on TV. Even Dancing with the Stars is completely worthless and boring now. ABC… you're tanking fast.

    Ugh I wish I could a-la-carte the stations I wanted from my cable provider. I'm sick of getting shxt channels and paying for them when I'll never watch them….

    Perez…why don't you post the SAVEGCB petition to alert more people to sign it to save the show? It can't hurt to do a quick little post!

    Re: tom

    You're wrong! It was great.

    And really? "beauty?" Yeah I guess.. if you think bean poles with horse faces are beautiful… She was one of the worst parts of the show. I watched in spite of her.

    You seem to forget that you and your other closed minded idiots are only a small sliver of a fraction of our society. Why don't ya'll go get an island and live there so that the rest of the civilized world doesn't have to be subjected to your idiocy? You make baby Jesus cry. Remember, he promoted love!

  54. Avalynn Misterkan says – reply to this


    54

    One million moms are stupid…. don' they have anything better to do? Like really they have the time for this also… I'm 15 and I watch GCB and I think it is hilarious *live in HOUSTON TEXAS!!!!*. It is actually DIFFERENT than most shows a nice change! Also if parents are so worried about their kids watching this they need to know that most kids learn stuff like this when they are like in 3rd grade. I am a A honor, NJHS, all AP, perfect SAT score kid… and I think this is a perfectally acceptable. Also if people are worried about this being a train wreck don't watch it!!!! And don't ruin it for the rest of us. Finally I would like to say so what if its a giant stereotype…. it is true and you cannot get mad at ABC because they portrayed the truth.

    bullshit….wtf abc. what a poor decision.



  56. 56

    I am not a christian, but I am not certain how it is fair for ABC to protect the gays but damn the christians with negative stereotyping bullshit at every turn. Enough with the gay. Does everything have to be gay?



  57. 57

    So bummed about GCB! Loved this show. So tired of all these Christian haters who throw hissy fits when they see something they don't like. Get over it! It is a fictional show that gives us a good laugh. If you don't like it…good news for you!….you don't have to watch it!

    Re: roseRe: R – I consider myself Christian because I believe in Christ and the Holy Trinity. What was offensive about a show with a cast of strong, independent women who were committed to their faith, marriage and community? The show was not called "Good Christian B!tches," but "Good Christian Belles" then shortened to GCB. It provided numerous examples of applying Christian Values to everyday life by using humour: keeping a marriage convenant, praying for His guidance, asking for forgiveness, and especially forgiving enemies. And it was all done with humour. Yeah, there was homosexuality, infidelity and un-Christian behavior, but all Christians are human and imperfect. God didn't put Jesus on Earth to hang out with the perfect religious believers. He came to help those He felt needed His help the most: nonbelievers, thieves, prostitutes, basically anyone who lost their love for themselves and for others. So, please step doqn from your high and mighty, self righteous horse, get a sense of humour, and learn to laugh at ypurself once in a while. It is so refreshing and humbling. This show did a great job of using humour as a vehicle to show the world some good Christian Values.



  65. 65

    this show was hilarious! very disappointed that abc is canceling it. anyone saying that it's offensive and raunchy clearly doesn't have a sense of humor. I live in Texas and in no way did I find it insulting. it was just a tv show after all, if ppl didn't like it then they should have just changed the channel.

    I can not believe that you cancelled this program. I was the cutest, funniest, great wit, good script and wonderful cast..Those one million Mom must have been Good Christian B*****s, with no humor. Listen to Joyce Meyers about Good Christians, she has got there number. Who every wrote these scripts saw a great deal of humor. I am in shock-it never even had a chance. What kinda politics surrounded this program. Desperate Housewives was BS compared to this unique program. Weeds had more show than this one. Shame one all of you that had this show cut off.

    I don't think it should have been cancelled! It's not my problem for the OMM's organization out there that YOU couldn't stop your kids from watching it, why, because you yourself could not keep your eyes ff of it! I loved this show, it had a sense of morality, charm, and female dominance within itself and I can't help the fact that y'all wan it gone! I was sad to see this cancelled an let's face it should it have not been cancelled, it would have given y'all one more thing to bitch about! What else is new?

    I loved this show. If you don't like it don't watch. I am a mom. Its not like my kids watched it. I am so sick of people bitching. I don't understand all of you who complain about the show. COMMON SENSE…If you dont LIKE IT DONT WATCH IT. Bright people in the world. It is a shame. There are a 101 stupid CIS or criminal shows and this one gets taken off. What a pity.



  80. 80

    This sucks. I really loved GCB. My daughter and I really looked forward to Sunday nights for some girl time without my husband and son. GCB was hilarious, and I will miss it terribly.

    For those of you that think this show was offensive really need to grow up and change the channel. This show was one of funniest well written show since desprate housewives!!!! ABC has really lost their minds now!!! I will no longer watch anymore more of ABC's shows. :( Disappointing!!!!!!!

    Bad call ABC. GCB is a great show. I would sign the petition to bring it back. DHW is gone, why not move it to their old time slot? Scandal got picked back up? It just started, why is that show getting picked back up before GCB? I haven't wantched Scandal, so I'm not saying it's not good, but I know GCB is good & they have been on longer than Scandal. Those that have issues with this show bc of the name are being rediculous, they changed it to suit you. Those that say they weren't being "christian", who are you to judge? Oh & by the way…IT"S A SHOW…not real life. Grow up & learn the difference or turn off the tv, but stop messin with my shows! This is what i call an "Unauthorized schedule change".

    Re: KarrieBelle – Sadly, you are correct. It seems smaller channels have all the good programing. I am surprised ABC didn't at least move GCB to ABCfamily. It should have been given at least two seasons. I started watching it online today and I am unfortunately hooked.

  95. MaryAnn says – reply to this


    95

    Are you out of your mind? ABC has finally picked up a show (GCB) that is intelligent, funny and somewhat relevant as well as being irreverent. I know people like this and they are hilarious to watch. This is the type of show that can and would have given the old "Dallas" a run for the ratings. You LOSE!!! How old are the people who make these decision, 14? I have a problem watching all the drivel and so-called "reality" shows. They hold no interest. GCB could have run for years and become the stable that the ghoulish CSI shows did. This show could have had real interpersonal content and substance delivered in a humorous fashion. Again, YOU LOSE!!! And unfortunately so do we, the viewers.
    The original translation to GCB was considered insulting and abusive to women - oops, so you changed the translation from "bitches" to "belles". Again, how old are these idiots making decisions? Do they not have any REAL life-skills? Do they not have knowledge of protocol for addressing women, especially women from a certain lifestyle? Why don't you ask Annie Potts, she or her past writers have real experience in how women like these think. Give me back GCB and you will after a time benefit in ratings and good judgement.

    I am thoroughly disgusted that ABC cancelled GCB - my favorite new show of the year and did the same with Pan Am which was my 2nd love. Putting GCB on Sunday nights opposite Mad Men was ludicrous and the ratings would have been through the roof had they moved it to a different night. I spread the word about GCB because it was the best damn comedy writing and acting in a troupe that I have seen in 25 years. Miriam Shor was so hilarious in her parody that I found myself bonding with strangers about it. The show made fun of hypocrites period. I can't believe that I live in a country where GCB is cancelled because it may offend Christians but Rush Limbaugh's show lives on to continue calling women using the pill whores. Obviously the big networks have a problem with strong women characters and the shows created around them. I just got back from Europe and wish I could race back there so so I didn't live in a place that tolerates such bullshit.
