Thirteen episodes were made but only three were aired in the USA. The show came under fire from religious groups, nine NBC affiliates refused to air the show in prime time (reruns of "F·r·i·e·n·d·s" were substituted in its place; several affiliates offered to air the show late night but NBC declined), promotion was minimal and, after the debut, ratings were minuscule so NBC canceled the series less than two weeks after it premiered.

This dog is driving me crazy! She never listens to me! She whines and whines but I don't know what she wants. I bought her a chew toy and she won't even play with it - she's impossible!
So, it's like she's spoiled and ungrateful... and you don't know whether to love her or hate her? All you want is some sign she cares and just when you think you've done everything right and you're gonna get that sign, she turns on you?
Exactly! Did you have a dog once? What's so funny?

Somebody brought up the Simpson's in this context. It's true: the same narrow minds that fought the Simpsons for Bart's "rebellious attitude" fought this one too. How stupid can you get. While not the greatest show in the world, this was clever, fun, and quite wise on a theological level. In fact, I can't really figure out why a religious person would be against this, unless they are simply looking for something to be offended by, because it makes them happy to get in a paroxysm of moral outrage, regardless of the matter before them.
I'll tell you the difference between the Simpson's and this quick cancellation: we've had a great increase in power, over the last 15 years, of the narrow-minded and censorious. This trend must be fought, or we won't have much culture left.
