Debmar-Mercury will launch the summer test of its new talk show, Father Albert, on July 11 on Fox TV stations in six markets, a Fox spokeswoman confirmed on Wednesday (May 25).
The six markets are WNYW New York at noon, KTTV Los Angeles at 2 p.m., KDFW Dallas at 1 p.m., WTVT Tampa at 11 a.m., KMSP Minneapolis at 1 p.m. and KSAZ Phoenix at 1 p.m. The test is expected to run for five weeks.
Father Albert Cutie made international headlines when the then Catholic priest was caught kissing his girlfriend, Ruhama Buni Canellis, on a beach in his home town of Miami. Cutie left the Catholic priesthood, became an Episcopalian, and married Canellis in 2009. In December 2010, the couple welcomed a daughter. The couple also has a son from Canellis' previous relationship.
Besides being a priest, Cutie has made a name for himself hosting a daily talk show on Telemundo, a weekly talk show on Telemundo International, and several radio programs. He's also written several books, including his most recent, Dilemma, which was published in January.

I urge Fox to not broadcast Fr. Cutie. I have corresponded with Fr. Cutie. He has unresolved personal anger projected at the Catholic Church and ignoring his own actions in his downfall. He ignores any thoughts about objective truth or morality and really preaches not the Gospel of Jesus but the Gospel of Fr. Cutie. Lets pray for him, Allen murphy
