There were a few bits of the book that were obviously Gaiman, but I do think the majority of it was Sir Terry. Gaiman did the screenplay conversion though. How was it?
Not sure about the Alan Moore reference. Are you trying to say Pratchett hated the conversion? (So much that he died before it happened). That seems to be a pretty universal Alan Moore reaction (the hating, not so much the dying).
The Yeti refused to have his name associated with the movies based on his comics, so was not named in the credits (even though he writes full script, so most of the creative input is his), and he even refused the money, after the first one or two.

Gaiman did the screenplay conversion though. How was it?
I made it through the first episode...it was rough. I'm not a fan of continued narration in movies to begin with, and the narrator in question is simply terrible.
Secondly, I know people would kvetch regardless, but a lot of dialogue that works on the page simply does not translate well to an actual, physical, dialogue. Some re-writes for screen are called for, and some movies/shows do this well. Good Omens is not one of them.
The scene I was most looking forward to, the "evolution" of "Dog", left me a bit flat as well.
Maybe it'll get better. The actors are doing a great job with what they're given, so there's that.
