'Chelsea Lately': Kristin Chenoweth Explains Why Her New Show Is Named 'GCB'

Kristen Chenowith's new hour-long dramedy has gone through plenty of name changes, before settling on making its own acronym with "GCB." Based on the book "Good Christian B*****s," there was no way ABC was ever going to call it that. Chenowith helped Chelsea Handler understand the show's title on "Chelsea Lately" (Weeknights, 11 p.m. EST on E!).

"What does 'GCB' stand for, because it's confusing for that to be on ABC?" Handler asked. "It's like, How many letters do I have to remember?"

Chenoweth cited the book, assuring the audiences they didn't stick with that name, even for what the acronym stands for. "It's called 'GCB' or 'Good Christian Belles,'" she explained. "but it's like 'GCB,' They like the roll of the tongue." Either that, or they were hesitant about using the word "Christian" in the show title as well as "B*****s."

No matter what it's called, ABC hopes soap fans will tune in when "GCB" premieres Sunday, March 4 at 10 p.m. EST. "Chelsea Lately" airs weeknights at 11 p.m. EST on E!
