It's a frequent device, although I remember Larry Niven used it a lot in his "known space" books.

Fast Times at Ridgemont High has some pretty funny dialog substitutions for broadcast.

|You may not realize this living on the east coast, but unlike most netwroks, F/X does not has a West coast affiliate. it's showing the same thing at the same time in all markets. So if a show comes on at 10pm in the east, it's on at 7pm on the west coast.|

Is this a recent change? Parents Television Council specifically mentioned this in manyy of their complaints about The Shield.

|Same thing here. Just "Yippee ki ay!"|
On TNT last week they actually added "Mr. Freeze" to the end of "Yippee Ki ay". Of course, this means nothing but took care of the M and F sounds at the beginning of each of the real words.
Has anyone watched movies on AMC with the closed captioning on. In Serpico they were beeping the audio for curse words, but the exact curse words that were bleep were appearing in the closed captioning.

|There's a seventies Sci-Fi novel (but I cannot remember now which one), where in the future the word "bleep" has become a swear word. So they say things like "You bleeping moron" and simply "Bleep!".|
As a child reading about the Vietnam war that's what I thought the soldiers said! Because at least in some articles, the journalists had started to parrot the sound of "bleeeeep" that they heard on television!

Maybe some cable systems didn't switch over the Pacific feed as soon as others.

| Oh man! I was watching "Not Another Teen Movie" last night on the NewVI (a Chum affiliate). |
Anyway, this was, or appeared to be completely uncut.
It's the way Chum works(if they edit themselves). Sometimes they borrow FOX or another American network transmission, so it'll be the American edit.
If it's before 9pm, they'll bleep out everything, but once 9pm passes, they'll only bleep out "Mother" from motherfucker and extremely offensive language. I also noticed they don't really like rape or extreme drug use in films. But if you manage to catch the same movie during the midnight showing, you'll notice they make zero edits(well maybe a few for time).
| However, the most creative editing I ever heard was in Die Hard 2... |
That's the funiest edit I've heard. It sounded like it was some spanish guy dubbing as well, which made it even more funny.
This was a FOX edit, btw.
