Do any cable shows feature uncensored F bombs yet?

    Speaking of Yellowstone, I noticed that a pretty small but noticible amount of people (presumably older, uptight people) complaining that the show has too much profanity!
    Of course, they had nothing to say about the graphic violence that takes place in every episode.

    Can't believe how you can't even swear uncensored on late night TV.

    We can swear here, as long as it's post water-shed (8:30pm onwards), and that's on Network TV!

    I'm guessing it's an advertiser thing. Note that they were initially very reluctant to throw around a lot of curse words in The Walking Dead or Breaking Bad 12 years ago, because that was the early stages of non-network dramatic shows getting big audiences on commercial cable channels. But once it became more accepted, and shows like this achieved huge ratings and critical success, the standards loosened up and AMC began to give the producers a longer leash. I've also seen a little bit of nudity and a lot more violence on Better Call Saul and The Americans, so clearly times are changing and what they can get away with now pushes the envelope a lot more.

    I don't doubt that a lot of this is a reaction to Netflix, Amazon, Apple, and Hulu, where the have virtually no censorship for language (being pay channels). Apple has said they were going to be careful about sexual content, but the number of F-bombs in their shows (particularly The Morning Show, which was a series I really liked) was kind of shocking, even for me. I can take 4 or 5 uses of f***, but they were doing it 25, 30, 40 times per episode, which is kind of an overload.

    I was watching Casino on IFC last night, and noticed that all of the swear words were not intact.

    It makes no sense because they allow unlimited F bombs on shows like Snowfall
