Question Would MWC not be as popular if it came out today

At the time, MWC was considered to be at the forefront for subversive, politically-incorrect, crude, cynical humor. But hasn't comedy writing evolved to more than just fat jokes? In other words, would much of MWC's brand of edgy, masculine humor be seen as outdated and considered lazy by today's standards.

Probably just as popular, if not, even more so. Look at how edgy some of the current sitcoms have gotten, like It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Another point to add is that even though MWC was obviously a satire (the Bundys were pretty much people you were supposed to laugh at instead of with), if it was on the air today (especially in the Twitter age), I wonder if most people simply wouldn't get it. In other words, they would instantly assume it was supporting every word and action the characters did.

"We're Bundy's. We hate cops." - so yeah. I think they would fit in just fine.

Another problem is that a single episode can be very funny. But then you start realizing that it's always the same episode where, after a while, you can see every joke coming from a mile away: Al making fun of overweight women, Peggy's lazy white trash family, Kelly's stupid blonde slut act, Bud being a proto-incel, Marcy being an emasculating shrew, etc.
