We f***ing hope so! LOLz!
Today, broadcast networks are going in front of Supreme Court to argue that they shouldn't be scrutinized by the FCC.
Even though the Supreme Court ruled the FCC's ban on swearing to be "entirely rational" in 2009, the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals is now saying that "the FCC policy was unconstitutionally vague."
AND given the fact that the U.S. Supreme Court does seem interested in expanding the First Amendment, it's quite possible that they might rule in favor of the networks.
Should be quite the f***in' day at Supreme Court! Ha!
We wish the networks luck with their cause!!!!!

We're glad to hear it! We've been rooting for this show ever since Mario Batali broke that bed last month! Ha!
Last week, ABC's The Chew reached a weekly AND series high in the ratings thanks to its Christmas episode featuring DWTS' Maksim Chmerkovskiy!
Thursday's show marked The Chew's #1 telecast to date with 2.77 million total viewers, and it ALSO marked the SECOND consecutive week in which the show delivered its #1 telecast! Wowsa!
Not only that, but thanks to The Chew, ABC was the #1 network across ALL target women demographics!
Looks like the other networks might be biting off more than they CAN CHEW if they try to compete with ABC Daytime!

Actually, we guess the Lifetime movie will probably be more about the wives than the miners, but fear not, because there is A LOT of interest in making this weeks rescue into a flick.
Sources are confirming that many studios are scrambling to secure the rights to the the heroic story of the 33 miners trapped and then rescued in Chile this week.
From exclusive TV interviews on major networks to major motion pictures, Hollywood is reportedly in an epic race to get to tell the story first.
But it might all be for nothing as one source is reporting that the group of miners made a "verbal agreement" early on during the ordeal that they wouldn't share certain aspects of their story with the press and that a group contract would be drafted making sure that the entire group profited from their story, no matter which individual told their story.
A united front?! How honorable! How often do you see that?!
We're just so happy to hear that they've been saved and are all safe now. Can't ask for anything more than that!
