Stephen Colbert invited Sir Hugh Laurie from the TV show House to read a list of what was once considered indecent terms by the big four networks — ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox. Network television believes in order to compete with cable their actors should be able to say some very vulgar language that is currently only used on cable. They have petitioned the FCC for “looser” indecency standards in order to compete with cable, stating that they have lost “cultural clout” by not being able to use profane language on television.
