What the Bleep’s Going On?

Advertising Age takes a look at the way some words get bleeped out during television shows. On a broadcast series like “Southland” it’s clear what a cop means when he’s heard saying “shut the bleep up,” while on cable, anything goes on the premium channels, while the F-word is about all that doesn’t show up on the add supported channels. “A lot of it has to do with the audience expectation, the nature of the audience and the nature of the program,” Alan Wurtzel, president of research and media development at NBC Universal, tells Ad Age.
