Wednesday on Utah TV: KSL substitutes “Saints and Soldiers” for “Saturday Night Live”

This somehow seems especially appropriate. Our friends at KSL have chosen not to air the "Saturday Night Live" Christmas special that’s airing tonight on NBC.

In its place, the station will air Saints and Soldiers (8 p.m., Ch. 5), the 2003 film about faith under fire.
