actually tv sound has always been FM band a very high band, very clean and free from noise. There were shows in stereo, but no tv capable of it.
Answering my own question, "asshole" is incorporated into the film, the alternate version (which I forgot ends with a suicide!) is a semi-hidden extra.So...which version of the Eric Idle + Dan Aykroyd scene did they use? I've never noticed any other variations, but there are at least two different versions of that scene. The NBC-friendly one involves a coughing fit, the other has Idle ending the scene with "What's it like to be such an asshole?"
