KMYU-TV, the MyNetworkTV affiliate in Salt Lake City, is picking up the NBC drama The Playboy Club almost two weeks after the city’s NBC affiliate KSL dropped the series because of its subject matter. “We respect the position of KSL and are pleased that KMYU can provide a home for The Playboy Club,” KMYU VP and general manager Steve Carlston told TVGuide. “This highly anticipated crime drama will now have the opportunity to be seen by the viewers throughout (the Salt Lake City market).” The series, a crime drama starring Eddie Cibrian and Amber Heard and set at the first Playboy Club in Chicago in the 1960s, will air in its regular Monday night slot in the fall. KSL, whose parent company is operated by the Mormon Church, was the only NBC affiliate to turn down the show.
