24. 'Key & Peele' (Comedy Central)

I do confess, I had a really hard time with the Ray Parker Jr. sketch, because Ray is a genius and an idol of mine — are there really people who know this great man only for "Ghostbusters?" Which isn't even one of his 30 best songs? Key & Peele never heard "A Woman Needs Love"? "The People Next Door"? Or mercy sakes, "I Still Can't Get Over Loving You"? That said, I laughed hysterically at that sketch despite philosophically rejecting all that it stands for — and I also laughed at pretty much everything else in Key & Peele's farewell season, which didn't even feel bittersweet because these guys pushed it so heroically far for so long. Personal fave: Neil DeGrasse Tyson cosmosing his way out of domestic drama.
