I'm glad to see Studio C changing. My family and I love the first few
seasons but then it seemed that they got into comedy that was more just
"random" than funny. It also seemed that they relaxed and tried to meet
the world halfway. Their most recent sketch seemed to copy the SNL layout
exactly, with an SNL cast to host. I can see where many would find this
appealing, but for me, it shows that they are willing to let themselves be seen
in the same boat with SNL. When in reality, Studio C was special because of why
they were different than SNL, not the same. It didn't feel right to have
them focusing on similarities with a pretty dirty show, instead of standing up
for the differences. I really appreciate all that byutv (and the lds church by
relation) are trying to do to provide people with wholesome alternatives to
everything that is out there on the media today.
Did they include Bill Cosby's lectures and excoriations of swearing and
such and how he was so much better being a 'clean' comedian? Careful
of high horses. I'd rather a comedian swear or not be completely
'clean' yet not be charged with drugging and raping women in his
I don't watch channel 11 anymore. Just nothing there that appeals. Oh wait.
we paused long enough to see some show with kids trying to navigate a course and
other older kids trying to cause them to fail and restart to lengthen their
time. No appeal there not even for kids. I just don't think 11.1 KBYU will
last. I do LOVE having 11.3 on the broadcast TV airway though!
Studio C tries to copy Saturday Night Live in many aspects-sad truth neither are
humorous unless you have that special sense of humor that might get some laughs
over watching paint dry.
Just bought a new car with SiriusXM radio. Tried to listen to their comedy
channels and couldn't find any clean comedy and mostly really adult
oriented comedy. There is a need for family friendly comedy. My adult kids
love Studio C.
I'm a big fan of Studio C, but this last season was awful. The best part
was Areil and Ursula. Then the kingdom in the couch.Otherwise, there
was a lot of screaming and shooting and overworking a gag.Comedy is
tough, but in previous seasons the skits were mostly good. That's not true
any more.Changing out the whole cast isn't likely to fix the
problem.The other stuff on BYUtv is old and purchased. Splatalot is
some 10 year old game show from Canada with C actors throwing in lines to make
it look local. The kid cake show is good...but from Canada.The
Serious Andes...Arctic...Amazon...Whatever, is fun BBC stuff from a decade
ago.Hetty Feather? Great! So, where's the local
content with national appeal?Extinct bombed. Granite Flats was too
expensive.Good luck developing a product to sell to the country.
Just last night as we flipped through our OTA stations my wife opined about
losing KBYU tv. BYUtv was fine as 11.2 but it really failing as 11.1's
main offering. I hope they figure out how to make it work because it's not
working right now...
I'm pretty much disgusted with Netflix. I've spend a lot of time
trying to find good shows that aren't rated R or mature. I just sit with
the controller and scroll and scroll across the screen. I just check the
ratings, R, R, Ma, Ma, R, and (MIRACLE!) a PG-13 one, except it's not even
interesting. I'm staying with it for now because they do have some shows I
like. I so wish they would make more stuff that I could enjoy. Bummer.
the athiest,It sounds that way to you because that is what you are looking
for. No one said anywhere in the article that the religious have a monopoly on
morality, only that clean comedy can be hard to find and hard to create. Why can't you be glad for someone's success?
What an embarrassment to channel 11 and believe me the bar ain't too high
for that station.
Another diatribe that assumes wrongly that the entertainment industry has
"abandoned family values" and that only the elite religious institutions
have the copyright on virtue, morality and family. You don't.
