In the US: Sundays, 10/9c, ABC

Time to look at the first three episodes of ABC's GCB (Good Christian Bitches) to see if it's a show you should stick with or a give a try.

The short answer is it isn't. After a first episode that didn't exactly demonstrate much by way of originality, wit, or intelligence, it's only gone downhill. Episode 2 saw the pseudo-Hooters waitresses fighting for the right to wear demeaning outfits, while episode three was basically a Desperate Housewives script with the serial numbers filed off, populated by people with emotional intelligence of muskrats.

It's unsubtle, stupid, populated by some very bad actors, and worst of all, not very funny. Avoid.

Carusometer rating: 4
Rob's prediction: Dead by the end of the season
