How sad it is that the networks feel they need to lower their standards to compete for ratings by using common "street" language. They have even put the words in the mouths of children which indicates to those watching that this is acceptable language. These words become a part of the general public's speech that is unacceptable to many viewers who find such language abhorrent.
Our literary and educational levels have already dropped to new lows. This language is not necessary nor does it really add to the shows. Many sitcoms have proved this point in the past with their popularity. Hopefully, the public can set limits and not lower the ratings for the networks.
