Basically "family friendly" shows like this are completely stripped of anything remotely intelligent in their quest to portray some completely unrealistic world view where everything is just swell. People make their kids grow up on stuff that is completely devoid of intelligence and unrealistic and wonder why most everybody out there is so stupid and clueless.
Exposing your kids to reality and trusting them to learn lessons from their environment is much better for their long-term mental health than intentionally having them live in a fantasyland during their brain's formative years.
I loved SNL when I was a kid.
I see your point and understand what you are saying. Studio C has some flops with some of its sketches but for the most part they have some really funny stuff. Comedy should be crude and rude to be funny. Jerry Seinfeld is one of the funniest comedians out there and he is very clean comparatively to most comedians. SNL used to be good but its time has come and gone, it hasn't been funny for a while. South Park while most of it was eh, has its funny episodes as with all shows.
I feel comedy has to be middle of the road in terms of content, much like Mel Brooks style or Shrek style. It shouldn't be too nasty and filthy and it shouldn't be too sparkling clean either. That being said I still enjoy Studio C and as do many others.
