After complaints by GLAAD and groups advocating nondiscrimination in housing, ABC has pulled its reality show, Welcome to the Neighborhood before it ever aired. In the series, three white, Christian families in Texas eliminate "alternative" families (those with different skin color, different religions or different sexual orientations) until they are left with one family who will move into a vacant house onto their cul-de-sac. While critics were given the first two episodes to screen, what's unclear to me is whether the entire process had already been filmed, and that one family already won the house. Maybe we'll see the unaired series alongside other TV shows for sale as a DVD.
