Gary, Mike too racy for KSKN

KSKN-22 has yanked two episodes of the UPN network show “Gary & Mike” because the new claymation series is “inappropriate” at 8 p.m., according to Bud Brown, general manager of KREM/KSKN.

“It had pretty heavy sex and drugs content,” said Brown.

The station aired the premiere episode of the show two weeks ago and received “five phone calls and a couple of letters” of complaint, Brown said. So he went back and watched the show himself.

“I determined that the viewers were absolutely right,” said Brown.

So he pulled the Jan. 26 episode and the Feb. 2 episode.

However, other viewers like the show and are irate that the station pulled the episodes.

“There’s a bunch of viewers out here who are upset about this,” said Karen Kirmaier, who lobbied for the show’s return. “I saw nothing offensive in there at all. Those viewers who are offended have an off button they can use.”

As a compromise, Brown said he is moving the show to 10:30 p.m. beginning Friday. However, he said he will watch it in advance and he is reserving the right to yank that episode, too.

Stay tuned.
