Daniel Hasn't A Prayer

The Book of Daniel, the controversial drama starring Aidan Quinn as a conflicted Episcopal minister with a Vicodin habit, has been yanked from the NBC schedule after just three weeks on the air.

Besides drawing less-than-godly ratings, the show was criticized by Bible thumpers as being anti-Christian and was pulled from several of NBC's smaller affiliate stations.

The likely truth? NBC decided the controversy wasn't paying off ratings wise. If Daniel was a hit, the network wouldn't care about aggravating some religious righties.
