Just to be clear, the "rules change" was from AMC. It was their own internal rule/guideline, and they are changing it. The FCC has made NO rules change.

Here is a quote from that link:

"I think it was our script coordinator who told me there was an email had come up. There had been a memo saying we could now say 'f**k' twice over the course of an entire season.

"I don't know at what point AMC corporate decided to allow it, but they did."

I personally don't like it and im pretty crass myself. I hate that my kids, or any kids, can just put on regular cable tv channels and see boobs and hear every curse words possible. I think it's trashy. And i know i can block certain channels but the fact that it's out there just makes me SMH.

It doesn't bother me. Sometimes it just seems more in character for them to use the F word. Especially on a show like American Horror Story. As for nudity they have always done that on American Horror Story. Particularly with whatever character is being played by Evan Peters. He often shows his butt and I'm not complaining.

I am accustomed to them not saying it so it's never bothered me, but I can see how it would fans of the comic. And, lets be real. That word would get said ALOT by them IRL!

Two in one season seems odd to me. It's not like it's a show children should watch. And they did what many call TORTURE porn in the first epi of last season, which I very much objected to. Very much. They lost a lot of viewers with that. Almost me. If they continued that I would be gone girl forever.

In fact, IIRC, the finale of the previous season went too far. At the very end. ugh. We get it, he's brutal. ! ugh.

We're doomed.
