WBIR should learn from others

WBIR should take an example from its Nashville counterpart and pull The Book of Daniel from its lineup because, in the words of the station manager:

"It would have rated very poorly. But that's not the reason we chose not to air it," Hale said. "We chose not to air it because we did not think it was appropriate for broadcast television in Nashville and Middle Tennessee. Our viewers told us."

Channel 4 did suggest to the network what I consider to be an acceptable compromise: The station offered to air the blesphemy in the wee hours of the morning, not during family viewing time. The network refused this the station pulled the show.

WBIR's viewers have told that station much the same thing. Will they listen?
