Mysterious Ways would be a TV show produced by the members of the CSC in which seemingly life-affirming or miraculous events turn out to be incredibly depressing.
The Pink of Health
Two women, friends, get pregtant at about the same time. Unfortunately, one of the foetuses is found to have a birth defect of some sort. After wrestling with her concience, and her religion, the mother decides to abort the foetus. The other woman is sympathetic, and continues with her pregnancy. The delivery scene is very touching, until the doctor holds up the baby, which (after an uncomfortable silence) is revealed (by camera movement) to be the wrong race (eg white parents, black baby). Perhaps casually reference a black friend earlier in the episode.
