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. While Lu­cifer is al­ready in the sec­ond sea­son, Amer­i­can Gods is a brand-new highly ac­claimed show and we aim to bring our view­ers the best and fresh­est con­tent in latenight prime-time slots.”
