The AP is reporting that so far, 4 NBC affiliates are refusing to air the show. NBC says these affiliates account for less than one percent of its potential audience.
Meanwhile, the blog gets a mention in this EOnline story .
In an effort to encourage further discussion about Daniel, the Episcopal Diocese of Washington launched The Blog of Daniel, which has predictably inspired plenty of fervent comments both for and against the show.
Early media reviews of Daniel have been generally positive, with some critics suggesting the series might be what NBC needs to end its losing streak and reclaim its stake in the ratings battle.
The two-hour series premiere of The Book of Daniel is slated to begin at 9 p.m. Friday on NBC. In most markets, that is.
