The owners of Salt Lake City television station, KSL, have pulled the NBC show Hannibal from the air because it's too graphic.
This isn't the first time the station, owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, has pulled a show. It also stopped airing The New Normal, about a gay couple having a child, The Playboy Club and Saturday Night Live.
This statement was posted on KSL's Facebook page:
"PROGRAMMING NOTE: After viewing the past few episodes, as well as receiving numerous complaints from viewers, KSL TV will cancel the airing of the NBC show "Hannibal" on Thursday evenings.
This decision was made due to the extensive graphic nature of this show. The time slot will be replaced with a special edition of KSL 5 News at 9 p.m. NBC remains a valued partner to KSL TV. KSL is confident that with the proliferation of digital media, those who wish to view the program can easily do so."
How do you feel about the decision? Is network television becoming too graphic or should it be left to viewers to decide if they want to watch?
