TV show description:
From creator Patrick Walsh, the Living Biblically TV show is inspired by the AJ Jacobs book, The Year of Living Biblically. The sitcom centers on Chip Curry (Ferguson), a film critic for an NYC newspaper. After the death of his best friend, Chip decides to live a better life, through strict adherence to biblical precepts.
Chip has always had obsessive tendencies. Luckily his pregnant wife, Leslie (Kraft) is a smart cookie. Although she’s highly skeptical, she finds Chip’s newest passion amusing and gives him her full support.
Realizing he’ll need some guidance along his new path, Chip enlists the help of a Catholic priest, Father Gene (Gomez), and the Father’s best friend, Rabbi Gil Abelman (Krumholtz). As his “God Squad,” they listen to him, offer advice, and generally help Chip render a contemporary course of action from the Bible’s ancient instructions.
At the paper, Chip’s boss, Ms. Meadows (Manheim), is surprisingly supportive of his new project — largely because she knows the story he ultimately writes about it will sell. Similarly, his co-worker and friend, Vince (Rock) is happy to give him a reality check when necessary. Like Leslie, Vince finds the entire enterprise entertaining.
As Chip sets out on his earnest, spiritual journey, he is grateful for the support of his near and dear. Still, he can’t help but wonder if the results will be of “Biblical proportions.”

What do you think? Do you like the Living Biblically TV series? Should this CBS TV show have been cancelled or renewed for a second season?
I loved this show, so disappointed it has been cancelled.
I loved this show.
I really liked this show and am disappointed that I can’t see the remainder of the episodes.
A new show was scheduled on my Verizon recorder, for Monday, Then it disappeared. When I did a search for it, nothing came up, not even previous shows.
I loved the show. Hilarious!! I hope it gets renewed
I thought that this show is thought provoking, and it doesn’t portray Christians in a negative light…hoping that it is renewed.
Like most others here – I really enjoy this show and I will be sad and disappointed to see it go. I found it amusing to see him juggle living by the bible 100%. At least he had the guts to do it – I don’t see anyone else (myself included) trying it hah
I loved this show and am very sad to see it go. I wish they would reconsider and bring it back.
Cruddy show. Am glad it’s gone
I love this show…it is sweet, has a great point and is honest. I am really disappointed that it won’t be coming back. Please think this over….and bring it back
Please please please bring this show back. Husband and I loved it. Had my mother watching it too. Had DVR Set for it in case we got home late.
please bring it back. Have been going through some rough times and this show ALWAYS made me smile!
I really enjoyed this show. Sad it’s cancelled. I applaud CBS for airing such a show, we need more moral based shows, too many out there trying to see how far they can go and offend.
Thought this was a great show! I have been looking for it in the tv schedule , now know why can’t find it …. disappointment has set in….
