Violence is pertinent to the show, showing tits is not.
No, there are decency standards. AMC is not the same as Cinemax or HBO because those are specifically premium channels, whereas AMC is a basic cable channel. Basic cable is still subject to rules and regulations for decency.

They write them because they think it's pivotal to the show or the story they're telling and they will be included as uncensored on the DVD releases. However on primetime in basic cable they cannot legally air the word fuck.
