Poll: What's Your Opinion About Faith on TV?


Religion and faith have always had a place in primetime television. Sometimes, it's been dealt with directly, on shows like Touched By An Angel and 7th Heaven. And sometimes, it's shown more subtly, whether it's the Heck family going to church on The Middle or Finn seeing the face of Jesus in a grilled cheese sandwich on Glee. We'd like to know what you think about primetime's portrayal of religion, and whether television could use more or less of it. Let us know in the poll after the jump... read more

I'm wondering what you think ...

Question: I'm wondering what you think of Saving Grace. I'm from Oklahoma, so I'm trying to figure out if my disappointment with the show comes from how it stereotypically portrays Oklahomans. There are the cowboy and Indian detectives. The angel chews tobacco. Part of the first episode took place at the stockyards, with the redneck millionaire cattleman hitting on Grace. The only character who doesn't seem like a walking stereotype is Grace herself, and she just seems off. A detective in Oklahoma driving a Porsche, even a beat-up one? On what planet? How much do they think detectives earn? And she's Catholic? Not that there aren't Catholics in Oklahoma, but there aren't that many, not like there are Baptists and Methodists. Why stereotype every character but one? Do you think future episodes are going to get any better? For me, the only thing this show accomplishes is to remind me how much I miss Joan of Arcadia. I'm still mad at CBS for that one. Answer: I've seen the second episode, ... read more

I'm a little worried: I love ...

Question: I'm a little worried: I love The Closer and I enjoy watching Heartland right afterward. But the previews for Saving Grace indicate that it is going to go on in the Heartland time period. Have they already canceled this great show? I hope not. I hope they are just going to preview Saving Grace, then it will move to a different time period. Please don't tell me that Heartland is leaving already. It has only been on for a few episodes. Answer: Matt Roush: You're right to be worried. The numbers for Heartland didn't hold up, and it wasn't getting much critical buzz, to put it mildly, so TNT decided to switch things around and, starting Monday, it has moved Heartland an hour before The Closer on Mondays as a lead-in. Saving Grace was originally scheduled to air on a different night of the week, but TNT is now hoping that Closer fans will stay tuned for Holly Hunter's oddball new show, which feels at times like an R-rated Touched by an Angel uneasily mixed with a procedural crime ... read more
