Utah NBC Affiliate Will Not Air ‘The New Normal’
KSL, the Salt Lake City NBC affiliate owned by the Mormon church, is opting not to air NBC’s new comedy The New Normal. The show’s premise involves a gay couple who hires a single mother to be to be their surrogate. The station deemed the show, “inappropriate on several dimensions”, presumably referring to the show’s gay relationship and politically incorrect dialogue. KSL also chooses not to air Saturday Night Live. Last season, it refused to broadcast The Playboy Club. Another Salt Lake City station, KUCW, will air The New Normal on the weekend.
