Sex & The Superstation?

Okay, I'm a bit obessed with "Sex & the City."
But - I was so surprised when Andrew emailed me this news item earlier today - starting next June, the Atlanta-based TBS Superstation will be showing cleaned-up versions of the HBA original series.
While I initially felt thrilled a few minutes later I just felt confused....cleaned up versions of the show....but how? So much of what makes the show great is that is is unrestricted by the normal broadcasting requirments...an "unsexed" version just won't be the same.
The article goes on to say that the shows producers originally shot the same scenes from a different angle so that the show could be reworked for a mainstream audience. I'm trying to picture how the directing would go....I'm guessing after take one Kim Cattrall jumps up and puts on her underwear for take two.....the f-word becomes...what?..."frig?" As in, "Frig me now, you stallion?"
Nope. I can't see it.
I mean, you should see what happens to "The Breakfast Club" whenever Superstation airs it.......
