An American censorship board called Standards and Practices (also referred to as Department of Prudish Intent) is the name traditionally given to the department at a television network which is responsible for the moral, ethical, and legal implications of the program that network airs. Standards and Practices also ensures fairness on televised game shows, in which they are the adjunct to the judges at the production company level. They also have the power to write-up and suggest to fire TV network stars and employees for violations of standards and practices. The Department of Prudish Intent takes things too seriously and also censors minor things.
