The most-watched show on cable is now one of the most popular programs on network television. Outside of football, “Yellowstone” is bringing in a massive new audience on Sunday nights and is definitely benefitting from the popularity of “60 Minutes” which regularly averages over ten million viewers. If the series has lost a little bit of its bite due to some censored moments, it certainly doesn’t look like the mainstream cares.
In addition, any sequences containing too much violence or sexual content will be softened in order to meet the community standards of citizens who happen to reside outside of the seemingly lawless Great Plains of Montana. For those already familiar with the show, that basically means that the mischievous matriarch of the family, Beth Dutton, won’t be quite as menacing or bare-skinned in certain scenes.
