YMMV / Studio C

Go To

  • Base-Breaking Character: The new addition to the cast. Less so Tori, who many agree another female cast member for Studio C was long overdue, but Aaron and Dalton, while not outright hated, are somewhat polarizing, with many comments on YouTube pointing out that they aren't as funny as the senior cast members. Still many have pointed out that the potential is there for them to grow as comedians.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: In "Lost Plane Crash," kneeling over the body of the "deceased" pilot, Matt says, "Well, at least now we have food. These peanuts... will make a great garnish."

  • Harsher in Hindsight: The Studio C 50th Anniversary sketch is much sadder, since the original cast will be leaving after season 9.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: In "The Piano Guys Behind The Piano Guys", one of the ideas is to float down the Amazon on a raft. In the music video for "The Jungle Book / Sarabande", there is a shot of the piano being played on a raft floating down a river.
    • This video which humorously treats Mormon missionaries as if they were mafia underlings, predates the #MormonMafia hashtag by 3 years.
  • Iron Woobie: Scott Sterling ends every match in a piteous state, begging for it to stop... and yet survives every murder attempt on his face.
  • Memetic Badass: Scott Sterling, dubbed as "The Man, The Myth, The Legend" by the Large Ham Announcer.
  • Memetic Mutation:

  • Missing Episode: Two sketches centering on an incompetent employee of a Cabo tourist attraction named Juan were pulled due to concerns over racial insensitivity, despite some Mexicans saying they loved it.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks!: Season 8 was divisive, with many long-time fans upset about the decision to no longer do sketches in front of live audiencesnote  (it has since been announced that live tapings will return for Season 9); most of the sketches are filmed off-site, with few sketches actually filmed inside a studio. This could also be a case of Seasonal Rot, as the show's co-creator, showrunner, and primary director, Jared Shores, left the series after the seventh season to pursue other projects in media. Many people were angered by a sketch in which Natalie's character's father dies in a hospital, only for the staff to celebrate the fact that it was the one-millionth death to occur at said hospital.
    • If that isn't enough, the Studio C Greatest Sketches DVD, released on November 28, 2018, contains sketches from the first seven seasons. The episodes are shot far enough in advance that they could've put some Season 8 sketches if they wanted to.
  • Win Back the Crowd: Season 9 and the return of the live audience has gone over quite well.
