A new member of the Saturday Night Live cast drew some unwanted attention over the weekend as he blurted out the F-word during a sketch. The sketch, "Biker Chick Chat," saw female bikers talking tough to each other during a parody of a talk show, substituting the word "freakin'" for the verbotten one. However, at one point in the sketch newcomer Jenny Slate was to say, "You know what? You stood up for yourself and I freakin' love you for that." Only, in this instance, she didn't use the word "freakin'." As soon as the word escaped, Slate puffed up her cheeks and the sketch concluded without an additional F-bomb. While use of the word in any program is barred by NBC, it does not violate FCC rules if it is used after 10 00 p.m.
