** Nicolas Sarkozy's presidency was comedy gold for many French humorists and caricaturists, including those who work on the show, much like what the [[MargaretThatcher Thatcher]] era was for ''Series/SpittingImage''. The show didn't enjoy as much success under François Hollande's presidency. One thing is sure though: François loves to sing. Some notable examples include [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4Td9QTJSRY Gné hé hé]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmrqXdL2Tdk Alors on flippe]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f13bvgPJZLo Les Playboys]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9VkEt_Ue9zw Emploioutai]], and even [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gMu7p4vmhBA Wrecking Ball]] (though this one was sung by Manuel Valls).

** "À l’insu de mon plein gré !" ("Without the knowledge of my own free will!");[[note]]A parody of Tour de France cyclist Richard Virenque's surreally absurd denials when caught in a doping scandal in 1998. For good measure, ''Les Guignols'' depicted Virenque as a brainless puppet with hypodermics stuck in his head.[[/note]]

** Johnny Hallyday beginning his sentences with "ah que". To the point that the French dub of ''Westernanimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' has Patrick Star using the same verbal tic.

* SarcasmFailure[=/=]TearJerker: Nobody in France felt like laughing the evening of January 7th, 2015, after the Charlie Hebdo murders, and the Guignols' sketches' tone was generally sombre. One sketch had Guy Bedos, a French stand-up comedian, try to learn to draw to fill the dead cartoonists' shoes; he looks at his drawing, finds it crappy and tears it in two, tearfully shouting, "''Rendez-nous Charb, merde ! Rendez-nous Cabu, Wolinski, Tignous !''"[[note]]Give us Charb back, dammit! Give us back Cabu, Wolinski, Tignous![[/note]]

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The average reaction to the December 2015 un-cancellation. Among other things, PPD no longer presents the show. Many think that the Guignols will never the same now that Vincent Bolloré is in power, and when you see the changes made to the Guignols and how pretty much everyone from Canal + is leaving (when they are not outright pushed to leave), it is hard to disagree.
** Their coverage of the American presidential campaign and their caricature of UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump largely felt out of touch with the public. The Website/YouTube videos dislike ratios are hammering it further.

Added DiffLines:

** Ratings of the show took a nosedive since the revamp that followed Vincent Bolloré's purchase of Canal+. First of all, the show was moved on encrypted schedules, which diminished its audience by a large margin. Then the historical anchorman, PPD, was removed. Then [[ExecutiveMeddling Bolloré specifically ordered to add]] Music/JustinBieber and Creator/KimKardashian.

** Even more so since Bruno Gaccio left in 2007. The new writers' humor has become {{Anvilicious}}, they are generally less skilled in their writing, and even in the public, you hear much less laughter today than before. [[ScrewedByTheNetwork Even less since Vincent Bolloré took over the channel]].

** Also right after the [[TheWarOnTerror 9/11 attacks]], a stand-up comedian did the remark: "The towers were twins for sure, they died on the same day." When PPDA said [[DudeNotFunny this was not funny]], the guest answered: "Of course it isn't, do you think it's easy to laugh about such an attack?".
