The wave of political correctness (PC) that swept through college campuses and business offices throughout the '90s and early '00s and informed the type of comedy that audiences found palatable has all but dissipated, as evidenced by the popularity of very un-PC TV shows like Family Guy, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Sullivan & Son, which routinely lampoon racial stereotypes. Some argue that this type of comedy actually promotes stereotyping, but Sullivan & Son co-creator Steve Byrne and actress Vivian Bang disagree, telling Sam Rubin that such comedy helps in "breaking down those PC walls" and creating a sense of "community" among the races.
