I was watching tonight's presentation of Phonebooth on FX...man they can say words like A**hole and shit like that on cable... on local channels (NBC/ABC,etc) they can say bitch (Or SOB), and so on...

Things I know they sensor are words like Fuck (but usually the bleeper doesn't get all of it so it sounds like FUUUC***beep****)


I know Jesus is bleeped or muted..........what else is sensored on tv and what is now on the ok list that wasn't on the ok list?

Sometimes, it seems like it depends on the station. I try my best not to watch most movies on channels like TBS, USA, TNT, etc. Because they butcher the hell out of it.

When I was in High School a friend got a 100% on a D.A.R.E. test and they gave him a D.A.R.E. duffel bag. Two years later, a drug dealer that was a friend of ours at the time asked to borrow something to transport 2kg of cocaine in and he handed over his D.A.R.E. bag. He brought it back to him with an oz of weed in it as a thank you.

the only time i watch is when it's so heavily edited that it becomes amusing... i.e. big lebowski on cable

"Shut the freak up Donnie!"

i wish there was more profanity on tv

To me, the only time its amusing is when they use someone that sounds nothing like the actor to overdub. Though when its bleeped out, it can be hilarious...

NYPD Blue was the only broadcast show that I know that made use of asshole (and shit I think). I was surprised when I heard f-bombs on Comedy Central a while back.

Unless it was during their Secret Stash, they dropped some major titanium balls lol

FX only censors the word Fuck. Everything else is fair game.

NYPD Blue also had a few mentions of "dickhead" as well, where appropriate. It's typically censored in the TNT reairings, though, although they leave enough that you know what it is.

Also, TBS shies away from profanity but whenever they show Mr. Show with Bob & David it depends. The censors missed a few words in some episodes so "shit" and "fuck" have come through several times.

Nip/Tuck says shit all the time on F/X.

I also find it funny that often when someone says Goddamnit, God is the part that is censored.

I never watch movies on TV unless their completely uncut for some special reason (Saving Private Ryan on Veterans Day, for example.) I want the full experience.

But yeah, I've been noticing that cable is becoming more lenient when it comes to swearing lately. I think anytime after 11 o'clock is when they're allowed to say shit.

On cable they can say anything they want to at any time because the FCC does not regulate cable.(and they should regulate anything.)

i know when they show Futurama on Adult Swim they edit Sweet Zombie Jesus, well just the jesus part. Though I am pretty sure it aired regularly on Fox

Actually networks have done the f word. I remember watching an episode of "3rd Rock From the Sun" and thought to myself "Did I just hear what I thought I did?". Yes it was the f word. I didn't hear ANY bleeping of it.

They had a band on last week that dropped the f bomb every other second and not a singlle one was bleeped.

I was going to say that exact thing. I wonder if they realize that they are censoring God...

My ABSOLUTE FAVORITE censored dub is from one of the Die Hard movies, the one with the plane and it's winter or something. I hadn't ever seen it so I'm not sure.

Anyway, I know what the line really is, but Willis definitely jumped out of the plane and said something like "Yippie-kay-yay, Mr. Falcon." And at some other point, he was talking to I think the police chief or someone and I couldn't understand a single word. Not only did it not sound like Willis, but it didn't sound like English. It was like they tried to put in words that fit his mouth movements without considering meaning.

Ever since the episode of South Park where 'shit' was said 160+ times with an onscreen counter, all bets are off.
If I thought I needed to get out in the sunshine I'd play Boktai.

The FCC had Saving Private Ryan removed from airing on ABC last year in a majority of US cities on Veterans Day because of vulgar and violence complaints. They ended up playing Hoosiers instead.
