The show became successful due to its creativity and originality, a new, fresh kind of comedy show in Indonesia. This however, is debatable since the format of the show appeared to be strongly based on foreign comedy shows, most prominently the American Saturday Night Live (SNL). Most of the comedic scenario the show used was based (sometimes even almost identical, word for word) on jokes circulating in the Internet and common Indonesian jokes.
