‘Carmichael Show’ Will Air Unedited ‘N-Word’

An upcoming episode of NBC’s family sitcom The Carmichael Show will air an unedited racial slur when the series returns for its third season this summer. The racial slur “nigger” will be heard rather than the euphemism “the N-word,” says its star and creator, comedian Jerrod Carmichael, who spoke to reporters about the decision Monday at an NBC press event in Beverly Hills, Calif.
