NBC's Aidan Quinn drama The Book of Daniel, which was presumed dead when it failed to land a spot on the fall sked, has been given a stay of execution. Per Variety, the Peacock ordered the show for midseason. Daniel centers on an Episcopalian reverend (Quinn) who's hooked on prescription pills and talks to Jesus and that's just before noon. In related news, Joan of Arcadia hoping for her own reprieve is mulling over a heroin habit.
