Watch The State

Named after a sketch comedy group of the same name, it starred 11 actors and comedians doing a variety of commercial spoofs, over-the-top comedy bits and random catch-phrases. Airing from 1993-1995 on MTV, the series was one of the music network's first scripted series hits and the show was popular enough that it briefly moved to CBS before it was canceled. The cast included a number of performers who went on to have long show biz careers, including Michael Ian Black, Ken Marino, Michael Showalter and Keri Kenney.
