By Dara Singh

Edited Version: CBS now airs an edited version of ‘Yellowstone’, removing extreme or offensive content that initially gave the show its edgy style.

Original Content: The show originally earned a TV-MA rating for nudity, profanity, and violence when it aired on cable.

Censorship Rules: To adhere to broadcast standards, CBS has muted profanity and edited or slightly cut scenes with violence or sexual content.

New Rating: Despite these changes, ‘Yellowstone’ still has a TV-14 DLV rating on CBS, indicating suggestive dialogue, coarse language, and violence.

Audience Reception: The first episode of ‘Yellowstone’ aired on CBS to massive ratings, drawing over 10 million viewers.

Future Broadcasts: The series will continue airing double episodes on the channel on Sundays, except on NFL doubleheader nights, when only one episode will air.

The transition to network television has allowed ‘Yellowstone’ to reach a much wider audience, though the censorship has tamed down the show’s originally rugged nature. Fans will have to see how the changes affect the viewing experience going forward.
