'Hannibal' pulled by NBC's Salt Lake City affiliate
The same Salt Lake City affiliate that routinely kicks up a fuss about NBC programming is kicking up a fuss about the gory freshman drama "Hannibal."
KSL TV announced this week that it won't air "Hannibal," which puts the Thomas Harris adaptation in the company of "The Playboy Club" and "The New Normal" among shows the affiliate won't or wouldn't air.
"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," the affiliate explains on is Facebook page. "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."
"Hannibal" quickly found a new Salt Lake City home on KUCW. Whew.
