The new ABC sitcom GCB has barely been on the air one week and it’s already causing a stir. The series is based on Kim Gatlin’s book, “Good Christian Bitches,” about a woman who moves back home after the tragic death of her husband and has to deal with the wrath of the girls she once tormented in high school. The network first considered changing the series title to Good Christian Belles before settling on using just the acronym. Despite the name change, NYC Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. is not pleased and is calling for people to boycott the show until the title is completely changed and an apology from the network is released. “You can’t change something that’s already in your head…we’re not stupid,” says Vallone. “I can’t imagine that they would consider using that language against any other faith. The fact that ABC considers this sort of language and this sort of title as something that would even be considered for a TV show is really a sad statement about how low we have sunk.”
ABC hasn’t yet released any statements about the controversial sitcom but the second episode, “Hell Hath No Fury,” is still set to air March 11.
