On July 6 I posted about TNT's reluctance to allow the word asshole in their repeat episodes of NYPD Blue. They still do that—bleep out the "hole" part of the word, or make a quick scene cut to avoid its utterance.
So tonight I'm watching TNT's The Grid, their limited series about counterterror agents and the terrorists they're after. Dylan McDermott and Julianna Margulies argue in an elevator about McDermott's somewhat hot-headedness, and as part of that discussion he utters the word asshole.
What, they only allow cursing in their original series but not in the several hours of other networks' one-hour dramas they repeat each day? Why the silly double standard?
