The controversy surrounding the ABC series GCB, which first had to do with objections to its original title, Good Christian Bitches, followed by accusations that it was poking fun at Christians, have finally caught up with it, as ABC has reportedly decided not to renew GCB, starring Kristin Chenoweth, Leslie Bibb, Jennifer Aspen, and Annie Potts.

Alhough ABC will not officially put out its list of approved and rejected series until next week, Deadline is reporting the approved line-up, and GCB did not make the cut, going down with other new series, Missing, starring Ashley Judd and Sean Bean, and The River.

GCB has been suffering from sinking ratings in its short run since premiering on March 4, initially drawing in a reliable 7.25 million viewers on average, before recently succumbing to as low as 5.6 million, reports Zap2It.

In better news for fans of ABC's new shows, the Shonda Rhimes-created Scandal, starring The Last King of Scotland's Kerry Washington and Ghost's Tony Goldwyn, will be renewed in its time slot of Thurdsay nights at 10 p.m.
