Homophobic Utah TV Station Refuses To Air New NBC Sitcom

In Utah you can have multiple wives…but if your syndicated TV show has anything to do with being Gay, it will get banned!

The Utah station, KSL-TV, said it won’t broadcast New Normal when it premieres this fall. New Normal is based on a single mother’s life as she becomes a surrogate for a gay couple and ya know…that’s bad.

“After viewing the pilot episode of The New Normal, we have made the decision to keep it off our fall schedule,” Jeff Simpson, CEO of KSL parent company Bonneville International, told Deseret News. “For our brand, this program simply feels inappropriate on several dimensions, especially during family viewing time.” Crude dialogue, explicit content and offensive characterizations were the main reasons why KSL-TV would not bring New Normal to air when it launches Sept. 11.

Ellen Barkin isn’t taking this isht lying down either and she went to Twitter to let us all know how pissed off she is:

Conservative group One Million Moms also had their own opinion of the new show:

NBC is using public airwaves to continue to subject families to the decay of morals and values, and the sanctity of marriage in attempting to redefine marriage,” the group said at the time. “These things are harmful to our society, and this program is damaging to our culture.”

    Ellen Barkin’s old non-working azz needs to pipe down. She just mad that she won’t have a guaranteed paycheck. This the same ho who got kicked to the curb by her billionnaire BF/ex-hubby after like 3 years of matrimony and had to hock all her jewelry cuz he wouldn’t pay her squat!

    First off, whatever goes on in the underbelly of Utah (every state got something to be ashamed of_) is not reflective of the entire population e.g. not everybody is a polygamist. Now with that being said, if we are to condone gay marriage and men buying up women’s eggs and wombs, then why shouldn’t polygamy also be accepted?

    Bottom line is the show is doomed to fail because it makes women and babies out to be commodities and accessories. Gay men really do think everything and everyone is for sale.
