Yes they are censoring everything. Howard can't have any bumps in the road while he is working hard for his new image. Yoko BethO would not have it any other way.
don't blame it on yoko (i mean beth). howard's game plan is to become PG-rated...not sure what the endgame is, but you can be sure every breath he takes, every move he makes is very calculated.
segue into emceeing a game show? hosting a talk show?(dream on howard, it will never happen) or and this is what i think the next act will be.
he is running for the presidency with ventura. the two of them will milk it for awhile but he brought it up the other day.
obviously, it's a half-joking thing but they can use it to get campaign money etc.
howard is into money. nothing else matters to him. nothing (not even beth).
I just looked at my archives of the show and sure enough the word "fagot" is still there and that's not all. In the original show, Artie also says "you are gay and faggot" but it got taken out of the replay today.
"Robin read a story about the FCC and the TV networks fight over fleeting use of expletives. Right now the networks are subject to $300,000 fines. Now they're in court fighting about it. The Supreme Court is going to be hearing the case now. That led to Fred playing Iron Sheik ''You are gay and faggot'' audio clips. Howard said that all he knows is that he's out of that game."
