Two more NBC affiliates have decided not to air a new network drama called "The Book of Daniel," which features an Episcopal priest with a gay son, the network announced Friday, the day of the series debut.
To date, four affiliates nationally have rejected the series as a result of a Christian lobby against the series, reported the Associated Press.
KBTV in Beaumont, Texas, and WGBC in Meridian, Miss., were the latest stations to reject the program. The two previous stations included KARK in Little Rock, Ark., and WTWO in Terre Haute, Ind.
NBC has 230 affiliates. A spokeswoman told the AP that the four affiliates make up less than one percent of NBC's national audience.
