Why do they always cancel the best shows? I'm not sure, but that has nothing to do with the well-deserved demiseof NBC's 'The Book of Daniel':
A new television show about a pill-popping priest who talks to Jesus has been pulled from the NBC schedule for igniting little faith from viewers after just three weeks on the air, network sources said on Tuesday.
"The Book of Daniel," starring Aidan Quinn as a conflicted Episcopal minister with a Vicodin habit, debuted to mediocre ratings January 6 and sank steadily in the Nielsens in its two subsequent broadcasts.
NBC has scheduled no further episodes beyond last Friday's telecast, and the drama, originally slated as an eight-part limited series, is not expected to return to the airwaves, network insiders said.
'Conflicted Episcopal'--isn't that redundant?
Daniel, we hardly knew ye.
