SALT LAKE CITY - A Mormon church-owned NBC affiliate in Utah won't air an upcoming sitcom about a gay couple who line up a surrogate mother to have their child and invite her into their home.
Officials with KSL's parent company, Bonneville International, which is owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, say the show is inappropriate for family viewing.
"The New Normal" is set to debut on NBC Sept. 11.
Bonneville CEO Jeff Simpson tells the Deseret News, also owned by the Mormon church, KSL declined to air the show due to offensive dialogue and explicit content.
KSL has previously not aired several NBC shows because the station has considered them inappropriate for their audiences. It's passed on airing "Saturday Night Live," for instance, which instead airs on Salt Lake City's KUCW.
