NBC Bends Over For American Family Association, Then Recants
Once again, the American Family Association has whipped out its big one and forced NBC to submit to its masochistic control over what Americans are able to watch on TV. Maybe that's a bit harsh and its previous victory getting NBC to cancel its controversial Book of Daniel had far more to do with lack or advertisers and ratings than any protesting the group did, but the American Family Association is now, apparently, quite pleased the term "Cruci-fixin's" won't be used in an upcoming episode of Will&Grace which will guest star Britney Spears.
Pleased as the group may be, NBC is now saying they never intended the word to be included in the episode and that previous mentions of the phrase in press releases were erroneous. Oh, what people will do for publicity.
