I can't wait to hear Joe Buck announce "Next on Fox, Oh F*ck It's You, following the conclusion of today's game."

Walker: They are trying to be edgy like premium or even basic cable channels and are failing miserably due to FCC rules which they have to obey and cable channels don't. The networks are so scared of getting in trouble "America's Funniest Home Videos" even blurs babies butts for fear of getting fined $20 million.


If you're saying "edgy" equals "bad language" I have to disagree. Usually expletives used in comedies are due to lazy/bad writing. Sometimes, not - I think "It's Always Sunny..." has awesome writing, and casually uses the words "bi*ch" and "sh*t" without being censored or bleeped. But it's good writing and it is the exception. "Arrested Development" - one of the best written shows in my opinion - bleeped everything (other than the pilot if you have the DVDs) and the bleeps were hilarious.

I just don't think "fu*k" constitutes "edgy". It doesn't shock me, is not in and of itself funny...no real purpose.

Besides, the bleep itself is far more humorous most of the time.

Although I'm not sure why I'm responding to a person who is concerned that AFHV "blurs babies butts".

What ever happened to easy titles like "The Bob Newhart Show"

Just name them by time slot, and people can go in with a blank slate.

Yo, you checked out that ABC @ 9pm Wednesday Slot, its hilarious (most of the time until they get sappy)
