Philadelphia cream cheese pulls their advertising from ABC show Good Christian B****** after just one week

Philadelphia Cream Cheese won't be spreading the good word during GCB.

Kraft has decided that it will no longer advertise its cream cheese during ABC's midseason show, which is based on the book series Good Christian Bitches, TMZ reports.

Ratings: GCB has a modest debut

"Philadelphia has decided to pull its advertising from GCB ... We have received a few complaints from consumers and their opinions about our advertising are important to us," a company spokesperson told the site. "We have recently decided to redirect our advertising to other programs."

GCB stars Leslie Bibb, Kristin Chenoweth, Annie Potts, Jennifer Aspen and Miriam Shor as Southern Christian women in living a wealthy enclave in Dallas. The show has come under fire for what some called a derogatory depiction of Christians. Earlier, New York City Councilman Peter Vallone also called for a boycott of the show because "the title of the show alone is yet another outrageous attack on the Christian faith. Charlie Sheen will be back on Two and a Half Men before we see a similar title targeting another religion."

GCB airs on Sundays at 10/9c on ABC.

Do you think GCB is derogatory to the Christian faith?

    That's just silly. The show does not attack Christianity. It does make fun of holier than thou hypocrites so I guess they like people of that sort. Some people have no sense of humor. The main criticism I had was that it was predictable and unoriginal. It didn't seem the least bit controversial to me.

    They do realize, of course, that one of the Actors (Carleen) is an Evangelical Christian, don't they?
    If anything, this show insults hypocritical, holier than thou, judgmental Pharisees. And those people are the real insult to Christians!

    oh dear, christians have no sense of humor and to make this big fuss about a tv show?? I'm surprised that they don't boycott tv shows with violence in it but they fell more offended about a show like GCB. I am a christian myself (but not so conservative, more liberal type if i can say so:P) and i find it soooo funny :) too bad that they cancelled it :(

    Kraft, the maker of Philadelphia Cream Cheese, has a right to make it's decisions. If GCB takes off, and I hope it does, Kraft can lick it's corporate wounds.

    It's attacking hypocrisy, which even Jesus did.

    MY MY MY> But these same "christians" do care about what Rush Limbaugh says about a college student.

    The show isn't saying this is how Christians behave, its telling the story of those christian women and how they behave...

    So, why isn't this reported? And to think we see in an U.K. publication. PROOF POSITIVE that journalism is dead in America.

    I started watching the pilot the other night and was so disgusted by the snobbery that I had to turn it off. Now, learning what "GCB" stands for, I'm even more offended.
