Another one bites the dust! And this case it proves that even if you have an incredible cast, witty writing from the amazing Robert Harling, and tons of publicity, it still could not save this series.
Today GCB was canceled by ABC. The series, which was anticipated to fill the soapy void that will be left by the conclusion of Desperate Housewives hit a series low in mid-April after starting out strong in its debut in March.
GCB was based on Kim Gatlin’s 2008 , Good Christian Bitches. The series featured Leslie Bibb as Amanda Vaughn, a divorced mother and former high school “mean girl” who moves back to her old neighborhood in Dallas. When she returned, she encountered the leader of the GCB’s Carlene Cockburn, played by series star, Kristin Chenoweth, who was hell-bent on ruining her reputation. Two of the more popular characters were Blake and Cricket played by Mark Deklin and Miriam Shor.
Mark Deklin took to Twitter to voice his disappointment tweeting, “Wow. I feel stunned & sad. We have had an amazing ride and……you, the GCBfans and Blicket shippers, have been just incredible. THANK YOU all for your beautiful love and loyalty. Just got a text from Miriam that said, “I will miss u most of all, Scarecrow.” NOW I might tear up.”
Kristin Chenoweth who was just about to perform in a live concert in San Francisco tweeted, “Onstage. Sound check. Bad timing ABC. San Fran will get a great show tho!”
Leslie Bibb tweeted, ” To all u GCB fans & Amanda lovers, thanks 4 the <3. Appreciate it & just wait, we’ll get 2 go on a new fun ride somewhere else.”
So soapers, what do you think about the axing of GCB? Would you have wanted to stay around? Let us know!
