--Just how far has television come in its non-family-friendliness? Check out this quote from Dave Madden, who used to play Reuben Kincaid on The Partridge Family:
"The kinds of things they do in Two and a Half Men could never, ever, ever have been done in 1970. If they did that, and it actually got on the air—which it wouldn't—we'd be out of a job the next day. I remember once on The Partridge Family, Danny came home and said that something bad had happened to him at school. My line was, 'Boy, that's really rotten, Danny.' Well, they came in from the network and said, 'Change rotten to awful. Rotten is too strong a word to use in prime time.'"
