"Daniel" eaten by economic lions

NBC has apparently shelved its controversial "The Book of Daniel" in the wake of low ratings and dwindling advertising support. The show, which focused on a flawed Episcopal priest who has conversations with Jesus, never snagged an audience.

The American Family Association, a conservative Christian group based in Mississippi, crowed about the show's departure. It, like many other conservative Christian groups, had been wildly critical of the show, and a handful of stations refused to even air it.

“We want to thank the 678,394 individuals who sent emails to NBC and the thousands who called and e-mailed their local affiliates,” said the group's chairman Donald Wildmon in a press release yesterday.
