In Living Color may return to FOX

SNL making fun of Tyler Perry was funny though and probably very accurate.
 
The only way SNL could make fun of Tyler Perry is if they did a spoof of his films and their materials but did it with white actors instead. But then it probably wouldn't be very funny.

I imagine In Living Color would also wanna touch on the Obamas at some point too.

SNL already made fun of Tyler Perry:

They just can't make fun of his movies.
 
I always liked Damon Wayans and David Alan Grier (Loomis Simmons & Calhoun Tubbs LMAO) the best on the show. Carrey was ok but the show went to **** when the funniest people dialed it down (Grier, Keymah and Davidson) or just straight up left (Damon Wayans, Kelly Coffield, Kim Wayans) and it became the Jim Carrey Show. Those skits were he always fooled around in the background though were always funny as hell.

Oh and for the record Chris Rock has said many times that he felt very out of place over at SNL and went over to ILC specifically cause he felt way more within his element over there. It's not his fault that it was for the last 2 seasons though. By the time he expected to become a regular the show was already bound for cancellation.

He might have felt out of place, but Saturday Night Live gave him a ton of exposure and made him close friends with Adam Sandler, Chris Farley, David Spade and Rob Schneider. Also, I think he felt more comfortable with the show in later years whenever he came back to host. He's still good friends with Sandler, Spade and Schneider today. I don't really know what his current relationship is with anybody on ILC though.
 
I still worry about this show's sense of humor in modern day. It was way before it's time, but now that it's it's time everyone's such a little baby that they can't even bare to laugh at themselves for five seconds.
 
Carrey would definitely come back for a cameo or something. It wouldn't be below him at this point.
 
I think it won't be the same. Back then the Wayans family was hungry and had been waiting to break out.

Plus as others have mentioned times have changed, blacks don't want to see themselves lampooned for white people on network television during the Obama era. It could work on BET, since it would be aimed at a mostly black audience, but they're probably too cheap to produce it.
 
It was not even only black people that In Living Color mocked. It mocked women, gays, and more as well. And every single one of those groups has trigger happy rights activists now that think it's impossible to even have one single joke towards their culture.

I mean I'm a gay man and I laugh my ass off at the Men on skits, but today GLAAD would be all over their asses.

If they're smart they'll just openly copy the Chaappelle Show in terms of comedy style and substance.

But they'd have to go to a cable channel. Network tv is very politicaly correct these days.
 
The bulk of tv ratings come from middle America, hence why CBS is always at the top of the heap in that area. Shows like The League on FX, they're happy if they get maybe like 100,000 people watching each week.
 
i have a feeling that the entire new cast is going to be announced & presented at the Fox 25th anniversary special at the end of April

it'd be nice to have a reunion with the Wayans, Jim Carrey, David Alan Grier, etc.

I've heard rumors of a cast reunion featuring the Wayans, Jim Carrey and Tommy Davidson. Grier is unknown since he's currently on Broadway with Porgy and Bess. Jamie Foxx is also unknown as he's shooting Django Unchained right now and I don't know if it will be done shooting by then. I would think that T'Keyah Crystal Keymah would also be back for any reunion.

I think we may see that female judge (Carrie Ann Inaba) from Dancing with the Stars appear as she was a former Fly Girl, but I have my doubts that J.Lo will appear, although she has a good relationship with Fox, so that might convince her to join any reunion show. We'll see.
 
Kim Wayans looking pretty damn good:

So.... what's happening with this, exactly?

came in to ask this same exact question

had trouble sleeping last night and was actually watching In Living Color reruns on MTV2

still hilarious
 
I never realized how stupid a skit the Headless Detective was and the tacked on laugh track didn't help any either.
 
If the guys from Key and Peele get their show cancelled then I wouldnt mind seeing them on the new version of this.

What’s going on with the In Living Color reboot?

REILLY: In Living Color is done. That’s not going to happen, unfortunately, for various reasons. It just didn’t come together. That show was a seminal show on television, and the bar was set at that level, and it just didn’t seem like it was going to reinvent the next chapter. I’m not giving up all hope that, at some point, we could reboot that. But, the particular one we shot is not going to be it.
 
Too bad. :( But maybe that show was best left as a relic of the 1990s.

I still miss Mad TV, a show that seemed to have the ethic of giving minority actors, actresses and comedians a forum to work in, as opposed to SNL.
 
Comedy Central is currently attempting to do similar stuff with Key and Peele and a couple other shows as it is, so it would be kind of derivative.
