Mike DeLier, general manager of KAUZ-TV, the local CBS affiliate, said that he, too, hadn't seen the Showtime series until he previewed it recently, soon after CBS made the decision to air it in an attempt to revitalize TV programming that had been relegated to re-runs because of the strike.He
said KAUZ is planning to air "Dexter," which CBS
says will maintain its macabre flavor but will be edited to meet broadcast TV standards, meaning certain four-letter words will be left out.
"It's passed all of the network censors," DeLier
said."I realize their subject matter is not something everyone agrees with â€¦ Our intent is to run it.We have a good relationship with CBS
.I don't think they'd air anything that's tawdry."DeLier
hasn't received any e-mails from detractors or any big uproar locally about the show.
"There are a lot of special interest groups, and you can't please everybody," DeLier
said about the opposition.
There's something wrong with that, DeLier
