The Emmy censors were bleeping busy on Sunday night as three actors slipped in expletives during the live broadcast.

Ray Romano joked about his former “Everybody Loves Raymond” wife, Patricia Heaton, sleeping with her new “Back to You” co-star Kelsey Grammer. But he used a stronger word than “sleeping,” which prompted Fox to cut away for a few seconds.

“Shame on you. We have TV children!” Romano said to Heaton, who was sitting in the audience.

Immediately after delivering his routine early in the show, Romano, wearing dark glasses, headed out the back door.

Sally Field praised mothers when she won an Emmy for lead actress in a drama series but also let her anti-war sentiments surface with a God-related swear word.

“And, let’s face it, if the mothers ruled the war, there would be no (expletive) wars in the first place,” Field said.

The censors also got a workout with Katherine Heigl, who mouthed an expletive after winning for her role on “Grey’s Anatomy.”
