And I missed it.

NEW YORK -- "Saturday Night Live" has started the season with a bang, or, more precisely, an F-bomb.

Newcomer Jenny Slate let the dreaded word slip during a parody of a talk show by biker women. Called "Biker Chick Chat," the sketch was laden with tough talk from its participants, played by Slate, Kristen Wiig and guest host Megan Fox.

But the most objectionable word was substituted, with rapid-fire comic frequency, with an inoffensive stand-in for that vulgarity.

Then, midway through the sketch, Slate slipped and said the word she meant to avoid.

"You know what? You stood up for yourself," she declared, "and I (expletive) love you for that."

She puffed her cheeks, perhaps realizing her error, but the sketch continued with no interruption or further flubs.

Slate is an actress and comedian who this summer appeared on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," and is perhaps best-known as half of the comedy duo Gabe and Jenny -- until her memorable "SNL" debut this weekend.

NBC declined to comment on the incident, other than to say the word had been restored to the intended "freakin'" for the show's replays in western time zones.

The sketch aired live at about 12:40 a.m. Eastern, well after prime time, when use of expletives can be punished by the FCC.

It wasn't the first time this particular word had been heard on "SNL." Cast member Charles Rocket made the slip in 1981.

But less than two weeks ago, a veteran New York City news anchor created a sensation by accidentally dropping an F-bomb during a newscast while bantering with the weatherman. The clip was soon an Internet favorite. Ernie Anastos of Fox affiliate WNYW apologized on the air the next night.

I just knew I should have stayed up to watch SNL.

When it hits YouTube, I'll see if I can find it for you.

The funny thing is I started out watching the show last night, but quickly got bored with it. I was still watching it somewhat when that sketch came on with the biker chicks, but soon afterwards I got a phone call and missed the F-bomb dropped. Oh well, I'm sure I'll live.

Oh honey, come spend the night and we'll watch the re-run of it.

Nothing new. Years ago, Eddie Murphy hosted some sort of awards show, like MTV's or something, don't remember. But part of the long running all show joke was 'Don't say FUCK on TV." He said it like that at least two dozen times. Didn't get bleeped either.

I remember whem Whoopie Goldberg uttered an emphatic "shit" on an awards show years ago.
Then who could forget Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction" on the most watched show in television history?

I still remember the old school SNL. John Belushi, Chevy Chase, Dan Akroid, Martin Short. For me, there is no comparison.

I pulled this off the internet & quoted this little bit when Cher said the F word..
On the evening of Dec. 9, 2002, singer-songwriter Cher stoked the watchdogs' fury to a new level. She was presented with a Billboard Music artistic achievement award in a ceremony aired live by Fox affiliates between 8 and 10 P.M. Eastern time. In accepting, she said, "I've had critics for the last 40 years saying that I was on my way out every year, right? So fuck 'em." Fox was using a five-second audio delay, but its bleep-meister was slow on the draw.

Here is a link to CNN's coverage of it with the blooper. Not much to it.
