Welcome to a brand new series called "On this day in history." Here, I will share an impactful event that happened in the near and distant history.
Today, I will be discussing one of the most shocking events in TV history. On 2/26/1981, Charles Rocket dropped the "F" bomb on "Saturday Night Live." The bomb drop was so clear that it had America gasping in shock. The incident led to a mass firing of cast and crew.
Rocket's "F" bomb drop is said to be the first time the "F" word was dropped on TV.
