In this sketch called "Rise and Smile," two Ferguson anchors try not to offend anyone. They just can't seem to shake all of the references to the citie's current situation. Admittedly, the sketch is pretty ballsy. It's just what the show needed. The audience is understandably quiet for a lot of the jokes but it's still a funny waste of a sketch. It's 2014. We can joke about these things.
