The original title of GCB was "Good Christian Bitches" but changed to "Good Christian Belles", before the name finally settled on GCB. The series was based on a novel by Kim Gatlin called "Good Christian Bitches."


The cancellation of this show has come as a disappointment to many, including cast member Jennifer Aspen. She tweeted on Friday: "I'm so sorry to tell you all that #GCB has been cancelled by ABC. #Heartbroken."

Leslie Bibb, who plays Amanda, tweeted: "To all u #GCB fans & Amanda lovers, thx 4 the <3..Appreciate it & just wait, we'll get 2 go on a new fun ride somewhere else! #lifeisperfect".


Fans of the show commented on tvline.com:


"I Agee GCB is one of the cleverest, funniest shows I'vee seen in years. I can't believe abc let it go. Hopefully another network will pick it up," said commenter Cheryl Hickey.


Another commenter wrote: "I said the same thing from episode 1 of GCB, that it had the potential to be the next Desperate Housewives.....but of course ABC dosn't care about the people who watch their shows."
