MADtv: Fox Cancels Comedy TV Series, Producer Says Show Will Go On

12 November 2008 8:06 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

After 14 years on the air, Fox is pulling the plug on its late-night Saturday TV show, MADtv. Though the sketch series has had a very respectable run on the network, producers aren't ready to give up on the show just yet.

Fox's answer to NBC's Saturday Night Live (SNL), MADtv began airing on October 14, 1995. The show features topical sketch comedy as well as popular musical performances. Taking its initial inspiration from the long-running Mad magazine, the series' material includes movie and TV show parodies, music video spoofs and, early on, animated Spy vs Spy segments.

MADtv's ensemble of comedy players has included performers like Michael McDonald, Debra Wilson, Aries Spears, Mo Collins, Bobby Lee, Nicole Sullivan, Alex Borstein, Will Sasso, Stephnie Weir, Frank Caliendo, Phil Lamarr, Ike Barinholtz, Nicole Parker, Keegan Michael Key, and Jordan Peele.

The series is currently a production of Qde, a joint venture of David Salzman »
