Two Nexstar Broadcasting affiliates are refusing to show NBC's controversial drama, "The Book of Daniel," when it opens with a two-hour show Friday, according to Reuters and Hollywood Reporter. Nexstar's Joplin NBC affiliate, KSNF, still has the program listed on the schedule on its website.
The stations refusing to air the program, according to the article, are KARK in Little Rock, Ark., and WTWO in Terre Haute, Ind.
The series features actor Aidan Quinn playing a drug-addicted Episcopolian minister who has a gay son and talks with his own personal Jesus, who is a character in the series, according to the article. The series, as you can imagine, has been a target of the conservative American Family Association.
