Then, why do KBYU & ByuTv exist?

My only question is to Justin Bartha:

After being such a fun and charming 'Riley' what the heck are you doing wasting your talent on this show???

To Hank Pyn. What on PBS is so wondeful. How about the frontline series. All of the ones I have viewed have been well done and informative. The one titled Money Power and Wall Street should be required viewing for every American who thinks free marker economics will cure all that is wrong with our economy. What a great expose on the corruption within our financial institutions. And no I am not a socialist or Liberal. Back on track kudos to KSL for refusing to air The New Normal. I suspect it will go the way of the Playboy CLub.

There is nothing on PBS (other than BritComs) that you could not find in some other form on The Science Channel , The Nat Geo Channel, CSPAN, or Bloomberg.

And, oh yeah. No Ridiculous pledge drives where you can donate $120 to get a $15 DVD!

I am glad KSL did this. How else would the predominant religious members know how to choose not to watch this on their own? While you are at it KSL, why not implement a device that only allows LDS members to watch your TV station and listen to your radio station?

Why is everyone making such a big deal out of this. This show won't last much beyond what the Playboy Club did. It is doomed for failure.

South Jordan, UT

Just have to weigh in. BRAVO KSL for having the courage to stand up on this and thank you for appreciating the family time on television. Millions of parents around the country prefer to NOT watch course language and explicit content with their children. Please continue to preserve the values that most of us hold onto. GOOD JOB!

Your comment presupposes that members of the LDS faith are the only ones who believe in morality. They aren't. Decent people of all faiths teach their children morality, and then set an example they can follow.

I appreciate the decision KSL made. It represents the wishes of the majority of it's listeners.
