Gordon Ramsay's Pad Thai Criticized, But Monks Approve on 'The F Word' (VIDEO)

Chang and Gordon Ramsay on 'The F Word'Buddhist monks are only allowed to eat one meal per day, and, as it turns out, they can be less-than-zen about it. More accurately, a few lucky monks are lucky to have Chef Chang, the head chef at the Blue Elephant, one of London's top Thai restaurants, to be picky on their behalf. Chang had no problem telling Gordon Ramsay his food wasn't up to snuff on 'The F Word' (Tuesdays, 10PM on BBC America).

Ramsay was charged with making Pad Thai for the monks' only meal of the day. He wanted to impress Chef Chang, so he put in a few twists. But when he asked Chang what he thought, Chang actually crinkled his nose. "This is not Pad Thai at all," said Chang. "Pad Thai has to be sweet, sour, and salty." In fact, Chang used a more colorful expression to describe it, and Ramsay seemed hurt and amused all at once.

Is Kathy Griffin banned from CNN?

Kathy GriffinIn 2008, Kathy Griffin said something on CNN's New Year's Eve show that was shocking, something concerning a heckler and his penis. A few days ago she said the F word live during the broadcast. Will she be back on CNN on December 31 of this year?

Not according to our friends over at PopEater. They say that insiders have revealed that CNN has banned Griffin from all future New Year's Eve shows. For the record, the network says that they have not discussed who will or won't be on the next New Year's Eve show.

So, should Griffin be banned? I'm all for outrageous humor, blah, blah, blah, but I think there has to be a common-sense limit to what she says on a live show. Her Bravo stand-up specials are one thing, but she says the F word on live TV after she says something equally risque' the year before? What do you think?

Update: CNN says that reports that Griffin has been banned are false because no decision has been made on next year's show yet.

What You Missed Last Night: Kathy Griffin swears (again) on CNN

This was probably expected, but last night Kathy Griffin said the F-word while co-hosting New Year's Eve coverage on CNN with Anderson Cooper. Here's the video. I guess you can't have a time delay in a show that has a live countdown to New Year's Eve.

Saturday Night Live: Megan Fox/U2 (season premiere)

jenny_slate(S35E01) Alternate title for this post: "New girl's f-bomb overshadows Megan Fox's slammin' bod."

Yes, Saturday Night Live new girl Jenny Slate's f-bomb was the most thrilling part of the show's otherwise bland 35th season premiere. It's not like we've never heard that word before, and it's not like accidental verbal naughtiness has never happened on SNL (I still distinctly remember my extra-young self watching Cheri Oteri cringing as she contributed to the swear jar), but the pain still felt fresh with hot embarrassment.

This was partially due to the fact that it's just a generally bad thing to have happen on a player's first show (and in such a mediocre sketch, at that) but mostly because of this face that she made after she caught her boo-boo. Twitter exploded with people's camera phone pics of this one moment.

Jenny Slate, welcome to the big time.

Top ten F-bombs dropped on live TV - VIDEOS

by Bob Sassone, posted May 18th 2007 1:00PM

Letter FThere are many swears that have started to make their way on to television, and I don't mean just HBO and Showtime. I've heard "shit" and "asshole" sprinkled here and there.

But there's still one word that's a no-no, and that's the famous four letter word that begins with the letter "F." It's banned on network television, and I think even on cable you can only get away with it so many times during one show. In the movies there are limits to the number of times it is used and the context (exclamation or verb?).

After the jump are the top ten videos of the word being used on live television. This Digg post lists the Richard Simmons clip as number one, but that's not accurate because they're outtakes, not live segments. Still funny though!
