You Wrote It, You Watch It is an MTV[1] sketch comedy series hosted by Jon Stewart[1] and featuring members of The State comedy troupe prior to being given their own show by the network.

The State troupe performed humorous sketch recreations of letters sent to the MTV offices by viewers, depicting outrageous stories and events from their daily lives, with introductions by Stewart.

An early example of crowdsourcing, the show only lasted one season, premiering in 1992 and being canceled in 1993. Jon Stewart would later quip, "You wrote it, you just didn't watch it!"[2]
