Well, that was fast. NBC has quickly yanked the plug on “Book of Daniel.” “Emily’s-Reasons-Why-Not”-fast, but still less time than Christ actually spent on the cross.
Shockingly enough, series creator Jack Kenny kept a blog about “Daniel’s” rapid deterioration from innovative schedule savior to crucified scapegoat. His belief that Christians would embrace the Aidan Quinn-toplined show rather than scorn it shows either a refreshing belief in the better angels of our nature, or incredible naivete.
Either way, worth a look, now that the only TV Jesus with a sense of humor is on “South Park.”
Oh, yeah: And on the cover of “Rolling Stone.”
