As if to prove that gay reality show contestants are not the only people who can offend America on live TV, Denver Broncos coach Josh McDaniels enlivened a Thanksgiving NFL Network broadcast with a certain twelve-letter word on a live mike, yelling at his team to “win a _______ing game!” The network apologized—after all, who could possibly anticipate that football coaches swear in the middle of games?

In other sports news, the Detroit Lions came through for me and my fellow natives of America’s cheeseball belt by losing; it wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without that. Feel free to share your stories of holiday TV, and to test Tuned In’s profanity filter, in the comments, and Happy Black Friday.
