Mormon owned Utah TV station won't air NBC gay sitcom 'New Normal' [View all]

NBC’s "The New Normal" won’t air on KSL this fall. The prospect of two gay men having a baby proved too much for the LDS Church-owned station.

"From time to time we may struggle with content that crosses the line in one area or another," said Jeff Simpson, CEO of KSL’s parent company, Bonneville International. "The dialogue might be excessively rude and crude. The scenes may be too explicit or the characterizations might seem offensive."

This marks the second consecutive year KSL is refusing to carry an NBC show. A year ago, then-KSL CEO Mark Willes said the station wouldn’t air "The Playboy Club" because the KSL brand "is completely inconsistent with the Playboy brand."


Tithing helps pay for ownership of this station.
