Two more NBC
affiliates close the book on Daniel

Two more NBC affiliates chose not to air the network's new drama The Book of Daniel, which features an Episcopal priest with a gay son, the network said Friday. Four affiliates nationally have rejected the series, and conservative Christian groups have campaigned against it.

KBTV in Beaumont, Texas, and WGBC in Meridian, Miss., were the latest stations to reject the series. Earlier, NBC affiliates KARK in Little Rock, Ark., and WTWO in Terre Haute, Ind., said they wouldn't air it. NBC has 230 affiliates nationally, and a spokeswoman noted that the four affiliates make up less than 1% of NBC's national audience. The series stars Aidan Quinn as the Reverend Daniel Webster and depicts him as talking regularly with Jesus Christ. (AP)
