Sketch comedy shows- why did they all go away?

Fridays; In Living Color; MAD TV... only the most uneven of them all remains: SNL.

They often launched performers into stardom.

Don't people know how to 'write funny' anymore?

Political correctness killed them. You're not allowed to be funny anymore because you'll offend someone

The generation that grew up with [italic]Full House[/italic] and [italic]Friends[/italic] doesn’t know the meaning of the word funny.

I miss In Living Color.

R3 I always felt MadTV was the poor man's In Living Color. I agree about political correctness killing funny. I was noticing the other day current SNL ( basically 2016-present) doesn't have as many iconic characters as In Living Color or MadTV . MadTV didn't have as many by the raw numbers, but the few they did have were hella funny. MadTV had: Miss Swan, Stuart , The Old Coughing Lady (mo collins) , Dixie Wentworth, Bunifa, Whitney (Debra Wilson) , Yvonne Kriddle, Funky Walker Dirty Talker, Vancome Lady, Lowered Expectations , The Two Latinas , and Reality Check.

In Living Color was crude but funny . That kind of rawness that is missing in SNL. You can't preach "sensitivity" and be a comedian too. Comedy requires truth. Sometimes the truth is dark, deal with it snowflakes. SNL was its best circa 1995-2002.
