The Fox Network issued a one-sentence explanation of why it censored three people during Sunday's Emmy telecast. The explanation, in its entirety, reads:
"Some language during the live broadcast may have been considered inappropriate by some viewers. As a result, FOX's broadcast standards executives determined it appropriate to drop sound and picture during those portions of the show."
The inappropriate language?
Ray Romano saying "screwed."
Katherine Heigl muttering "Oh shit."
Sally Field using the word "wars."
