So, Sam Rockwell hosted Saturday Night Live last night, and he totally dropped the F-bomb on live TV.
The sketch, called "Science Is Fun" featured Rockwell as a frustrated children's TV show host. The word slips out at about 2:47 minutes in.
Rockwell's reaction was pretty great — seamless and totally felt appropriate in the moment. ACTING.
It wasn't the only word that the FCC considers "profane" viewers heard during the broadcast. Weekend Update's Colin Jost made a point to say shithole while reporting NBC's request that the show use the more TV-friendly "S-hole."
Good news for both Rockwell and Jost? The FCC's notoriously hefty fines shoudn't apply here, as the show aired after 10pm.
Let's see that one more time.
