Yesterday (August 26), it was reported that NBC's Utah affiliate KSL-TV pulled the show from its fall lineup because of its gay content.
"Same-sex families are a beloved part of American television thanks to shows like Modern Family, Glee and Grey's Anatomy," GLAAD President Herndon Graddick said in a statement, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "While audiences, critics and advertisers have all supported LGBT stories, KSL is demonstrating how deeply out of touch it is with the rest of the country."
Jeff Simpson, CEO of KSL parent company Bonneville International, said that The New Normal "feels inappropriate on several dimensions, especially during family viewing time". The station also pulled last year's The Playboy Club.
The New Normal tells the story of a successful gay couple who finds a single mother to become their surrogate, starring Justin Bartha, Andrew Rannells, Georgina King and Ellen Barkin.
The show could still be watched in Utah on a different channel, as general manager of KUCW and KTVX Matt Jacquint said that they are looking for a time slot to air The New Normal on the weekends.
The show will premiere on Tuesday, September 11 at 8.30pm on NBC.
