NBC vs. Salt Lake City, Act III.
After The Playboy Club (too erotic) in 2011 and The New Normal (too gay) in 2012, KSL, the NBC Utah affiliate, has now decided they will stop broadcasting Hannibal on the grounds of its "extensive graphic nature".
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.
As Mediabistro says, KSL is "owned by Bonneville International which is owned by Deseret Management Corporation which is owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints". So the Mormons control it then.
