NBC affiliates in Arkansas and Indiana have announced that they will not air the new and semicontroversial drama The Book of Daniel, which premieres Friday night. Little Rock's KARK-TV says it ordered the preemption after "careful consideration" of viewer feedback, while Terre Haute's WTWO-TV claims the diss has "nothing to do with the program" in which Jesus is a character but part of an overall airing of grievances about NBC-affiliate relations.
