'Days Of Our Lives' Pushed To Late Night By KSL In Salt Lake City


"Days Of Our Lives" fans in the Salt Lake City area won't be able to watch their daytime soap during the day anymore. KSL, NBC's Salt Lake City affiliate, has announced it will move the long-running soap from 2 p.m. to 1:05 a.m.

According to the Salt Lake City Tribune, KSL won't say why it's moved "Days" to late night -- or why it airs "Dr. Phil" twice -- but it could be because of the show's ongoing gay storyline.

In a Twitter exchange in late August, KSL said, "Our new programming line-up is focused on news and talk."

In the past, KSL has opted not to air some of NBC's programming. The affiliate pulled "Hannibal" from air, deeming it too gory. It also refused to air "The Playboy Club" and "The New Normal." However, KSL the Mormon church-owned station did recently reinstate "Saturday Night Live."
