3. They won't play Saturday Night live

but another station does in the area

Occasionally the station has decided not to air some network programs, such as the short-lived sitcom Coupling and the long-running Saturday Night Live (SNL). SNL is preempted for the local SportsBeat Saturday, a holdover from the station's CBS days (KUCW, a CW affiliate, currently airs SNL instead). As a CBS affiliate KSL-TV aired the drama Picket Fences at 11pm on Saturdays instead of 9pm on Fridays.[7] KSL also refused to carry much of the network's poker programming such as Poker After Dark (now all canceled due to legal complications) due to ownership, Church, and viewership objections against gambling.
