American Gods has risqué content, so why does it air earlier than shows like Lucifer, which has not-so risqué scenes? – JONATHAN, VIA SMS There is method to the madness. “Several factors play a role when scheduling decisions are made,” explains Lani Lombard, head of publicity for M-Net. “Even though M-Net is reserving edgier shows for later in the evening, it won’t always mean that the age restriction escalates from show to show as the evening progresses.
