NBC Affiliate Refuses to Air 'The Playboy Club'

An NBC affiliate in Salt Lake City is refusing to air the network's new fall series 'The Playboy Club' on the grounds that it conflicts with the moral standards of the station.
According to a statement on the KSL website, the decision was based on a "long-term policy to screen programming for material which significant portions of our audience may find objectionable."
"The Playboy brand is known internationally," Mark Willes, KSL President and CEO, said in a statement. "Everyone is clear what it stands for. We want to be sure everyone is clear what the KSL brand stands for, which is completely inconsistent with the Playboy brand."
