An American TV Science Fiction series, probably from the 60s, which had the story line of a load of aliens landing on Earth and attempting to cure our love of fighting, ruining the world etc. The aliens were called The Monitors.
The end credits had a song that was reminiscent of the singing of Nina Simone.
It was on Sky TV about 7 or 8 years ago here in the UK.

Found this. Is this it? If it is I don't remember it.
The Monitors is a sci-fi satire made by the Bell & Howell motion picture equipment company in conjunction with Chicago’s famed comic improv group, The Second City (which has given the world top comic talent like Joan Rivers, Steve Carell, John Belushi, Dan Akroyd, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Mike Myers, Chris Farley, Stephen Colbert, Amy Sedaris, much of the SCTV cast and many others). It is the only feature film that The Second City has ever made.
Not surprisingly, The Monitors comes off like longform sketch comedy, but with a (slightly) dark edge. A race of aliens wearing bowler hats, black turtlenecks and black suits—probably for reasons of budget—has taken over the White House and keeps the population in line with an Orwellian government where sex, violence, politics and display of emotions are forbidden. A group of humans decide to “take their country back,” with predicable power struggles.
And who comes here to wish me well? A sweetly-scented angel fell, She laid her head upon my disbelief, And bathed me with her ever-smile.
