So I'm guessing it wasn't live then? Cuz they couldn't just cut away like that on live TV, it would have had to been filmed and edited, otherwise you'd need some serious anticipation powers and reflexes to just cut at those times.
In either case, for those of you who don't know the network gets fined for instances of vulgarity. Don't quote me on it, but it can cost the network up to $150,000 fine.
This, there would have been a fine if the middle finger were shown.
