Why Sitcoms Fail


SNL sketch lampoons token gay TV characters (with the help of Crazy Eyes)

Meet the Dudleys! There's Mrs. Dudley, Mr. Dudley, and their two loving daughters. Wait no, it's actually Mr. Dudley, Mr. Dudley, and their two loving daughters. Wait, actually, it's Mr. Dudley, a new Mr. Dudley...this is getting confusing. And is that Crazy Eyes from Orange is the New Black?

Taking a stab at Twitter feedback and token representation, SNL's new sketch, "The Dudleys," tracks a traditional sitcom family through a series of network changes meant to appeal to online complaints. Guest starring Uzo Aduba, the sketch lampoons stereotypical sitcoms, cynical business decisions, Twitter, and even snail mail. Watch below:
