ABC Network Cancels "Good Christian Belles" Show For Not Attracting Enough Viewerhip

Christian Post--ABC has canceled its freshman series with the controversial title "GCB," which some believed mocked Christians, as it failed to attract enough viewership.

ABC has officially passed on ordering second seasons of four series, including "GCB," which is based on Kim Gatlin's novel Good Christian Bitches and centers on a newly widowed woman who moves back with her family to the upscale Dallas, Texas, neighborhood where she grew up, according to

The "Missing," "The River" and "Pan Am" series have also been canceled.

The series, which was changed from the original title "Good Christian Bitches" to "Good Christian Belles" and finally to "GCB," was only able to attract an average of 5.9 million viewers and 1.9 ratings in the adults 18-to-49 demographic.

Stars of the series, touted as the heir to the "Desperate Housewives" throne, tweeted about its cancellation.

"[ABC] is literally in a room in NY right now deciding our fate. #GCB #GCBSeason2 #PleaseLord," cast member Jennifer Aspen wrote on Twitter Friday, and then announced, "I'm so sorry to tell you all that #GCB has been cancelled by ABC. #Heartbroken."
