Fuck, there are a lot of fucking new TV shows with "fuck" in the title

 Fuckity fuck

Last year's television development season was flush with bitches, as the post-S#*! My Dad Says buying frenzy around shows like Good Christian Bitches and Don't Trust The Bitch In Apt. 23 signaled a newer, sassier era in primetime television, one in which the networks donned leather jackets and stilettos and stubbed out the cigarettes they'd just taken up smoking on the FCC, unafraid to test the limits of broadcast decency right up until the moment they actually had to put the show on the air. And so, like a little kid gradually learning to swear, this year it's all about "Fuck," because what are you gonna do about that, Dad?

As Deadline notes, there are currently four separate comedies in development with the word "Fuck" in the title, including the previously reported Fuck! I'm In My Twenties at NBC; ABC's Wonder Years-like 1980s comedy How The Fuck Am I Normal (which will compete with Jason Bateman's own Wonder Years-like 1980s-set comedy, then win because it says "fuck" and is therefore way tougher); ABC's Dumb Fuck; and NBC's Grow The Fuck Up. Of course, like their predecessors, it's probable that, should any of them make it to series, their titles will be censored with abbreviations, dashes, or a random grawlix string. But the implication of the "Fuck" will still be there, waiting to make your precious virgin eyes bleed and your genitals turn to red, scaly horns. After all, we did just reelect Obama.
