Late Show with David Letterman
March 31, 1994
Madonna appears on the Late Show with David Letterman.
When Madonna appeared on Late Show with David Letterman on March 31, 1994, her coarse language, including fourteen uses of the word "fuck", made the episode the most censored in American network television talk-show history; it also resulted in some of the highest ratings of Letterman's late-night career.
Madonna's language and behavior—which was provocative, seemingly random at times, full of double entendres, and ended with a refusal to leave the set—caused a large public controversy. The Federal Communications Commission received numerous complaints, echoing Letterman's (sarcastic) remarks that "people don't want strong language in their homes on late night television".
