The ABC television network will show the movie “Saving Private Ryan” tonight, but people who watch the ABC affiliate in St.Louis won’t see it. That’s because the broadcast is unedited. “Saving Private Ryan” stars Tom Hanks as a World War II soldier. It is noted for its realistic depiction of war. It carries a TV-MA rating, indicating it is unsuitable for viewers under 17. KDNL has decided not to show it because the film has some adult language that the station thinks might violate the sensitivities of the Federal Communications Commission.
