WMG / Grand Unifying Guesses The West Wing

Unless explicitly stated otherwise, every Nickelodeon and Disney live-action sitcom from the last decade takes place in the same universe as The West Wing.
This explains the total absence of "No Child Left Behind"-related standardized testing, coaching for the same, and any other conservative-oriented education "reforms" from the Bush and late Clinton years. It's particularly noticeable in The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and iCarly, which both feature supposedly inner-city schools that resemble well-run suburban public schools far more than the blackboard jungles or excessively regimented "model programs" usually depicted in media; and the latter show has presumably commonplace home Internet connections capable of uploading live-streaming video at SDTV quality and frame rate, with glitches few and far between. All pointing to a different political ideology in place throughout recent years than what actually was.

Alternative Title(s): The West Wing
