Talk to the FCC. CBS, NBC, and other broadcast networks are subject to different rules because their content is available for free over the air, while stuff on cable is subject to less-stringent rules because one has to actively pay for a subscription to receive those channels, and thus, one should be aware that actively subscribing to the content makes it pretty much impossible to "accidentally" stumble across something objectionable that shouldn't have been there.

The History Channel hit big last night with "The Bible". That's something the broadcast nets could have shown without complaints from the usual groups.

The Bible
Quote:
An ancient novel full of murder, corruption, homosexuality, bestiality, incest and cruelty. It is often read to children on Sunday.
HBO should do a series on that!!!

I honestly don't know either, so will pass this off as "I thought".. I thought the reason was because KRON was playing hardball with NBC for the renewal, thinking NBC would give in on whatever demands they wanted (and/or buy KRON).. But instead, they bought KNTV & made it an O&O.

"The Following" is pretty gruesome.

Cable is not subject to ANY rules. They willingly follow OTA-like rules, at least for basic/extended basic cable channels. The various FCC rules ("7 words you can't say on TV") do not apply to cable. Though the loosening of cable I think is why OTA rules are being loosened (d*bag is common OTA now, and the 'd word' showed up on something last night, I think The Apprentice).

I'd have minded it less on NBC than on History. Because, you know... not history.

A ******bag shows up on every episode of The Apprentice.

I believe your version is basically how it happened.

Did you move from the Bay Area to Ohio?

(If so, WHY? I didn't think anybody left CA!! or at least, you're in the rounding error down to 0!)

On this note, I find it interesting that on The Daily Show, they used to bleep out just about all curse words. Then for a stretch last year (and maybe early this year as well) they let a certain curse word that starts with SH go without bleeping. In fact they had Pink perform One Last Kiss complete and uncensored. But I've noticed over the last few weeks they've gone back to bleeping that word. Complaints? Different management?

There are a lot of reasons I can't wait for Gray's Anatomy to end...
