The folks behind Fox Reality Channel say it would gladly air the recently shelved six-part exercise in intolerance, Welcome to the Neighborhood if only ABC would sell it to them. "I understand ABC's dilemma that the show might offend people initially before it plays out," FRC's general manager, David Lyle, tells Variety. "But our audience of passionate reality-TV watchers expects things to be more confrontational, so I think it would work for us." Translation: Bring on the bigots!
