Fake sitcom tries to cater to every opinion on the internet in this 'SNL' skit

New, 29 comments

No matter how hard you try, it's impossible to make everyone happy. That's the message of one pretty spot-on SNL skit last night. The fake ad is ostensibly for another derivative TV sitcom called The Dudleys, but it quickly shifts tone as the producers contort themselves to cater to every opinion on the internet. Soon enough, that stereotypical white suburban family gets replaced with a flamboyantly gay Woody Harrelson married to Kenan Thompson. As you can imagine, the whole thing spirals out of control pretty quickly before the producers just pull the plug and go back to square one. The internet might give everyone a voice, but it doesn't take much for the echo box of social media to become useless white noise.
