We are sorry to hear that you are annoyed by the edits to the programme.  The programme was bought and is scheduled for a 6 o'clock slot. From time to time small edits have to be made in order for us to comply with the ITC code. It was bought for 6 o'clock because that is a part of the day where you get a broad family audience. The show appeals to both and younger and adult audience, however we have to ensure that it is suitable for a pre-watershed audience.
We hope that this explains the situation.

It still doesn't explain why they don't move it to a later slot though, sort out all the problems, but the ITC theories were right though.

I guesss they wanted it to have a family audience and played it safe with some cuts at the cost of a few angry fans. I don't agree with it either but thats life for you.

They put it in at 6 because that is when they WERE showing Friends Reruns, coz they had nothing else to go in there, then they found Futurama, which nicely filled the slot. Thats what they told me, after a lot of arguing.

Ha! That activates my hilarity unit. UNDERSTATEMENT OF THE YEAR!!!  :rolleyes:

I'm only joking along, I guess having to edit due to the ITC is understandable.  :hmpf:
