Comedian Jerry Seinfeld was on “The Late Show” Tuesday, and the former "Seinfeld" star got a hilariously vulgar lesson in the latest broadcast standards and practices from Stephen Colbert. Colbert used the F*** during the interview and Seinfeld was visibly surprised that he would use such language on network television. “Is that the language we use now?” asked Seinfeld. “Is that okay?” “Yeah, it is,” Colbert replied. “ “CBS is fine. F**** sucky!” Colbert then went on a brief profanity laced tirade, drawing big laughs from Seinfeld. But since Seinfeld knows a thing or two about television shows and making people laugh, he offered Colbert a little piece of advice. “You could maybe cut the swearing out and broaden the appeal,” suggested Seinfeld. And Colbert got a huge laugh when he replied, “F*** those people.”
STEPHEN COLBERT: All I can do now is [BLEEP] up the way I, like, play the violin.
JERRY SEINFELD: Is that the language we use now? Is that-- is that OK?
STEPHEN COLBERT: Yeah, it is. CBS-- CBS is fine.
JERRY SEINFELD: Really?
STEPHEN COLBERT: CBS is fine, [BLEEP] sucky.
- Comedian Jerry Seinfeld was on The Late Show Tuesday and the former Seinfeld star I've got a hilariously vulgar lesson in the latest broadcast standards and practices from Stephen Colbert.
STEPHEN COLBERT: You got to come back to-- you got to come back to broadcast, Jerry. You know, they're getting killed by cable. They'll let me say anything now. Last night I said, [BLEEP] we'll give you [BLEEP] and they're, like, hilarious. Just do it.
Every word of that sentence just got bleeped, I think.
- And while there is no excuse for that type of language, Colbert came up with one.
STEPHEN COLBERT: I'm a little tired. I'm just little tired. I apologize. I apologize for the salty talk. I've been shouting-- I've been shouting jokes into an Altoids can and throwing it off an overpass for eight months now. I have no idea if anyone even watches this.

JERRY SEINFELD: Maybe cut the swearing out and broaden the appeal.
STEPHEN COLBERT: [BLEEP] Those people.
