Sitcom

Dot Comedy was a television sitcom broadcasted on ABC in 2000. The sitcom was mainly about bringing internet humor to a TV audience in the era where broadband was first made. The show was created by Carrie Gerlach and would feature bits of unfunny and ridiculous humor.

Episodes

The series only aired 5 episodes and only 1 was found and put on YouTube. The other 4 remain lost. The running time for every episode consist of 30 minutes. The show was hosted by Randy Sklar and Jason Sklar, who would guide viewers watching the show to another segment. The most popular clip of this episode was of Katie Puckrik (American broadcaster and newspaper columnist) traveling to a computer expo to see the creations that other people have made to know if consumers would buy them or not. One was of a desktop mirror that can be clipped to the side of the screen, letting you know if your boss would come by to see what you're doing. Another one was of a computer keyboard that could also be used as a back massager. The third and final creation consisted of a mouse that can also be used as deodorant[1]. Most of the humor and clips used for this show seem to take the humor of the internet and most of the time make it look like a joke to them.

Cancellation

After the first episode of Dot Comedy, the series was cancelled. There were only 4.1 million viewers who ever watched the first episode of the show, but the remaining 4 episodes of the show were never aired. As of right now, most of the episodes are lost to this day.
