Local Salt Lake City station KSL-TV (which is owned by the Mormon church) has decided against airing NBC's "The New Normal."
The show, which features a gay couple looking for a surrogate mother to start a family, hopes to compete directly with ABC's reigning comedy king, "Modern Family."
CEO of KSL parent company Bonneville International, Jeff Simpson defended the network's decision to keep "The New Normal" off the airwaves to the local Dessert News.
"After viewing the pilot episode of 'The New Normal,' we have made the decision to keep it off our fall schedule ... For our brand, this program simply feels inappropriate on several dimensions, especially during family viewing time.”
The latest protest for the show adds fuel to anti-gay conservative group, One Million Moms, which targeted the show for cancellation last month.
