Morgan Freeman Cusses on 'Late Late Show'When Craig Ferguson got loose with his language on the 'Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), Morgan Freeman joined in, and the producers later bleeped out the profanity in a creative way.

It became both polite and educational when the standard "beep" sound was replaced with exclamations in foreign languages.

"You can say [bleep]?" asked Freeman. "I thought this was a family show. What the [bleep]!?"

Ferguson said, "Here's the problem. They can beep it when I'm doing it but you can't [Ay, Caramba!] beep Morgan Freeman."

This is common practice for "Late Late Show" - Whenever Craig uses "saucy" language, he is always 'bleeped' with a voiceover of himself practicing his foreign language skills ("ooh lala!", "¡Ay carumba!", and so on). The VO is accompanied by the flag of the language's home nation to cover Craig's mouth.

Guests are always bleeped in the traditional manner or muted, and their mouths are blurred/pixelated.
