Basic Cable Content is Becoming More Coarse and HBO Like Adult Themed 9/4/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

I really like USA Network, and no they’re not paying me to say that, but I wish they would. One thing I’ve notice though is lately the language on USA, and other basic cable channels as well, is getting worse.

My all-time favorite USA show is Burn Notice which went off air in 2013. Suits and Shooter are my favorites right now, and while both shows are good, I’ve notice that the language has gotten worse, especially considering I’ve been watching Suits over the years and I’ve notice that in the current season, they’re editing out the second half of Mother---er, but the way it’s edited, it sounds like they’re saying it anyways, but that never happened on Burn Notice. The worst language on it was maybe God’s name in vein once or twice, but on the current shows, the language is all over the alphabet.  

The fact that basic cable feels they can get away with having this coarse language shows how our standards have gone down, and have gone down pretty quickly if Burn Notice ended in 2013 and now in 2017 basic cable is looking more like HBO, the content will only grow more adult as channels push the envelope more, and it seems that Americans are ok with it as no one complains about our declining moral standards, and it says a lot about our culture over all as our entire culture is becoming more coarse.
