The Florida Association for Women Lawyers, Miami-Dade Chapter is up in arms about “Bad Judge,” the new NBC comedy where Kate Walsh plays Rebecca Wright, a judge who is free-wheeling with the language, booze and men, which is supposed to be tempered by the fact that she’s good at her job.
In light of Wright’s antics, the FAWL has called for NBC to cancel the comedy — and it will probably get its wish, as “Bad Judge” isn’t exactly a ratings juggernaut so far. But if you’re going to be like that about it, would there be any new shows left on the schedule? Or would all the shows be canceled, like the faux suggestions below?

Promise Keepers wants ‘Madam Secretary’ canceled
As Promise Keepers quotes on its website, “In the words of Dr. Tony Evans, ‘As the man goes, so goes the world.'” A woman working as the secretary of state while her husband is a teacher and takes care of their children? The horror. Promise Keepers is also at the ready for when “State of Affairs” premieres in November.
