    It will be interesting to see another sketch comedy show on the air besides SNL.

    It's really amazing how many stars came out of that show. I wonder if they can do it again.

    Yeah, I think that's the tricky part. They are going to either have to try and exactly copy it (not doable), or make it COMPLETELY different. So then, it's something else anyway. I'm not feeling it, but I'll give it a chance just to see what KIW does with it.

    Interesting. The original was really funny. Recreating previous success is extremely difficult. I might have to at least give it a try.

    Maybe just MAAAAYBE they could find some people who aren't about to turn 50 and have been funny in the last several years.

    I've never, ever, ever liked Jim Carrey. Didn't like him on In Living Color.

    While he was great on it, there were TONS of sketches w/o him that were great too.

    Oh, I agree. I'm not suggesting they bring back Carrey...just that, with the likes of Fire Marshall Bill, etc., ILC was tremendous....really ahead of its time (and on a lousy network at the time)...
