The circle of Live: All TV references cycle back to Saturday Night Live

TV has to think long and hard about what its characters know about the outside world. Like, on Community, the characters know what South Park is, but Doctor Who has been replaced by Inspector Spacetime; and on Entourage, Jeremy Piven has been replaced by the shell of the hairpiece he once was. (Did Ari Gold produce I Melt With You?) It's so hard to follow—if only there were some sentient entity that could create a video that loops all references on TV shows to other shows, and demonstrate that Saturday Night Live is the Kevin Bacon of TV pop-culture reality. Oh well. Maybe some other day.
