Controversy[edit]

Censorship advocacy group One Million Moms (part of the American Family Association) complained about Save Me's content in June 2013, accusing it of being anti-Christian, while focusing its complaints on the character of Beth. The group urged others to protest to NBC to cancel the show.[7]
