Aliens in America, the new CW sitcom about a Midwestern family that takes in a Pakistani exchange student, debuts October 1st. Judging from the preview, it looks absolutely dreadful. The show’s premise is very similar to the Canadian sitcom Little Mosque on the Prairie. Little Mosque, however, was produced by a Muslim (Zarqa Nawaz).
Many blogs have pointed out that the name Raja is not typically a Muslim name. You would think that the network would do at least a little research on these types of things. Even Wikipedia says that Raja is usually a Hindu or Sikh name.
Surprisingly, the debut episode received favorable reviews when screened at a Los Angeles mosque.
