Comedy Central's Key & Peele is one of those home-grown oddities you only get on a network that develops not just comedy, but individual comedians. The series has only a couple of recurring characters (Luther, Obama's Anger Translator, is probably the best-known), making it a departure for the cable network, but the Wednesday night show has become a priority at the net—it will have had two full seasons by the end of 2012, and some of its bits—two guys trying to out-order each other at a soul food restaurant, for example—are starting to seep into the culture already.
