LOVE THY NEIGHBOR….Question of the day: what TV show can produce joint condemnation from both the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation and James Dobson’s Family Research Council? Answer: ABC’s now cancelled reality show “Welcome to the Neighborhood”:
“Welcome to the Neighborhood” followed three families in a comfortable cul-de-sac near Austin, Texas, given the chance to choose who moves in [to] a 3,300-square-foot home on their block. Each family is white, conservative and initially interested in neighbors like them.
Instead, they have a rainbow coalition of choices: a black family; a Hispanic family; an Asian family; two gay white men who’ve adopted a black boy; a couple covered in tattoos and piercings; a couple who met at the woman’s initiation as a witch; and a white family where mom is a stripper.
Sounds like a winner to me! I bet if it’d been a Fox show, they would have kept it on the air.
