Why bring this up? They've brought back, in a hollow shadow image, their TGIF lineup. Once the proud home of Urkel and now the home of 'Married to the Kellys.'
Haven't seen it. Won't watch it now.
At least they edited it. Barely.
"Those who actually watch it all the way through may be shocked to learn that tonight's version of the premiere is actually a new, improved one. In a previous incarnation, a different actress was cast as the young wife, and the fat uncle had a tasteless bit of bigotry to express.
At the dinner table, told that Meyer's character is half-Jewish, the uncle originally said, "The Jews -- aren't they the ones who killed our Lord?" In the revised pilot, he just keeps repeating "aren't they the ones -- " while others at the table interrupt him. It's a small change, but at least it makes "Married to the Kellys" relatively inoffensive, if not one tiny bit funnier."
No, it's not now 'relatively inoffensive.' It's, in a way, even worse than originally written. They figured it might offend. Did they excise it? No.
