I still don't see how NBC is going to be able to make a cannibal serial killer show under the FCC's thumb that isn't fatally constrained in what the audience expects from the premise.
Silence of the Lambs and Red Dragon were mostly about psychological games and profiling. There's very little onscreen violence. Hell, in Silence of the Lambs, Anthony Hopkins is on screen for less than 17 minutes. CSI etc. have already set some pretty high limits on what you can get away with on TV.
