The new comedy has been pulled from the schedule.
April 19, 2018
It looks like CBS has closed the book on Living Biblically. The network pulled the freshman comedy from its schedule today, effectively cancelling the show after just eight episodes.
The series premiered back in February as a mid-season entry but never really found an audience on Monday nights. In fact, it ranks as one of the least-watched and lowest-rated series on the network, so today's move does not really come as a shock.
Living Biblically follows a father-to-be living in New York City who, after losing one of his best friends, vows to be a better man by living strictly in accordance with the Bible. With support from his wife, a Catholic Priest and a Rabbi, he begins his spiritual journey towards a life with more morals.
Beginning next Monday, repeat episodes of The Big Bang Theory will air in its time slot. It is not yet known if CBS will burn off Living Biblically's remaining episodes at some point in the future.
what happened to a non televised pilot in front of execs like the old days and then seeing if it really is worth it , maybe we don't have to be subjected to such shit ...because the majority consensus is that you made such a show ... Yawn ....superior donuts is more funnier
The intent isn’t to ‘offend Christians’ but to follow AJ’s story as closely as possible.
The issue with the show is bad casting. None of the actors were that impressive. Camryn Mannheim in a comedy? Really?
If they wanted to show a person coming close to following the bible, they should have at least told him about Quakers. Maybe they should have had a dozen episodes where he doesn't have a car, phone, electricity, computer, etc. and works 14 hours a day, 6 days a week, and prays a lot. That would have been funny.
