Clap clap, KUCW, clap clap indeed!!
Even though people with internet access will probably just view Ryan Murphy's latest creation, The New Normal, online at their own convenience regardless of any ban, those living in Utah who still watch traditional television will also be able to experience the family sitcom!
The show was banned from air last week by Salt Lake City based NBC affiliate KSL-TV — which is owned by Bonneville International, a division of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints — but Ogden-licensed station KUCW has picked up the comedy to air at 10pm before Saturday Night Live (which is also banned by KSL-TV).
The New Normal centers around a gay couple wishing to have a child, and their bambi-eyed surrogate from Ohio. It's insanely cute and approaches 'controversial' (in this day and age? Crazy, right?) topics in a charming, witty way.
Again, props to you KUCW for dusting off the refuse that KSL-TV throws out and recognizing it for treasure it is!
