Haha. They bring on the fat lady. Well done, England.

First, I love that they didn't substitute a word for "shiat", second I love that NBC didn't bleep it well.

So Ryan Seacrest ruins all the reveals, and we get acceptable curses bleeped after 10pm? America kind of blows sometimes.

costermonger: Bungles: The £10 million LED "pixels" that they've installed in the stadium (a 3x3 grid on every seat) will now become standard everywhere, I suspect.

It does look seriously farking cool...



Also saves a crap-ton in the long-run for a venue that does massive performances, given it can replace a huge chunk of per-event lighting rigging and set building.

The shows on USA network have been saying 'shiat' for a while now. Quite often too.

I fully expect them to now actually close the ceremony with a live performance of Home by Phillip Phillips.

You already know jerry Jones is looking into adding it.

We can't be trusted with thousand year old curse words. We might be corrupted while we're smoking up.

Get ready for "While you were away..."
 
2012-08-12 10:09:41 PM

make me some tea: They didn't bleep that out on the BBC. I guess Americans aren't ready for adulthood.

It's after 10pm, that would've been just fine with the FCC too.



Given most of the world piggy-backed the BBC version live, it was uncensored in Iran and Saudi Arabia and the Vatican too...

I DOUBT I will be in the CFB threads this year due to my allegiance. However, I want to wish you the BEST of luck in your season, and the first game against my CFB team.


Ohh nooo, you're not allowed to ditch the football season! :(

Actually, I've noticed that just this year, the word "shiat" has become acceptable on NBC's sister network, USA. It reminds me of the year that NBC decided that "ass" was an okay word, and every show (especially Friends) used it a lot.

I bet we'll hear "shiat" on NBC in the next few years. Why not? We've seen it all week.
 
2012-08-12 10:10:01 PM
They should have done the Eric Idle bit as the very last thing with a giant inflatable foot coming down on top of the stage to end it all.

No Olympics in the future would ever top that....
 
2012-08-12 10:10:13 PM
Ooh. More Queen?

Did NBC cut most of the Freddie tribute? Goddamm them.
 
2012-08-12 10:10:19 PM
Fruitless bleep!

Morons! They have so much of the ambient sound coming through, that a single drum beat hangs in the air for 3 seconds.
You could still hear that awful word.
My delicate American sensibilities are offended.

Can't get away with that on over the air tv no matter what time in the US.

Meanwhile in Canada, they can show soft core porn over the air after Midnight.

Is this a reanimated Freddy Mercury I'm seeing?
 
2012-08-12 10:10:52 PM
And they ruined Freddie Mercury's moment as well.

Someone earlier said they should have extinguished the torch with a foot.

Yes please.

/pretty sure this is from Live at Wembley '86

They should have that Freddie Mercury reincarnated guy on stage... I don't care if he's not English
