Live in Salt Lake City? It might not be so easy to tune into "The New Normal." KSL-TV of Salt Lake City, Utah, will not air the upcoming NBC sitcom about a single mom who serves as a surrogate mother for a gay couple, The Deseret News reports.
"After viewing the pilot episode of 'The New Normal,' we have made the decision to keep it off our fall schedule," said Jeff Simpson, CEO of KSL parent company Bonneville International, in a statement. "For our brand, this program simply feels inappropriate on several dimensions, especially during family viewing time," he continued, citing crude dialogue, explicit content and offensive characterizations.
The conservative group One Million Moms recently slammed NBC for the program, calling it "damaging to our culture" and threatening to boycott the show's sponsors. Is "The New Normal" offensive in any way? Or is it an accurate reflection of today's "modern families"?
