KSLTV, a NBC affiliate in Salt Lake City, Utah, has decided not to air "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy's new sitcom, "The New Normal," because of what it calls "offensive characterization." The show is about a woman who decides to become a surrogate for a gay couple.
Buzz:60's Patrick Jones says that the Mormon church owns KSLTV.

The People for the American Way's Right Wing Watch reports that Monica Cole of One Million Moms, the American Family Association (AFA)'s women’s subgroup, sat down with AFA's Bryan Fischer on his Focal Point program to decry the sitcom. "Fischer maintained that the show shows 'how subversive Hollywood is when it comes to undermining our values," Right Wing Watch reported, "and Cole said the show 'continues to attack Christian values, conservative values, the traditional family,' mourning that 'the moral decay in public airwaves is continuing.'"
