    TV Shows

    Just wondering if TV shows can get banned when they use bleeped out words in prime-time?

    There was plenty of swearing on Australian Idol a few weeks ago and not much of it got bleeped.

    I think only if it gets reported to the authorities can they take any action. Wouldn't have a clue who you're supposed to report it to, though.

    I read in the papers about an IRN Bru ad having to be changed because a guy had a Glaswegian accent and some Glaswegian reported it as something that makes Glaswegians looks bad. They replaced it with an intentionally poor dubbing in a thick Oxford accent. No people from Oxford have given a crap.

    Obviously some bad blood brewing in the moderation ranks.
