'MadTV' Revival Happening as Prime Time Series on The CW

11 April 2016 12:35 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Hard to believe, but it's been 9 years since MadTV went off the air. If you've been missing the crazy antics of this hugely popular sketch comedy series that ran for an amazing 14 seasons, you can dry those tears. The CW is planning a MadTV Revival with one major change. It's going to be a prime time series this time out.

In 1995, MadTV was envisioned as an alternative to Saturday Night Live, airing a half hour earlier as part of Fox's Saturday night line-up. The show is coming back for 8 hour-long episodes on The CW. Executive producer of the original MadTV, David E. Salzman is returning as showrunner. The show will be produced by Telepictures.

The MadTV Revival won't stray to far from its original format. It will continue to skewer pop culture, offering parodies of all the latest movies, TV shows, and big social media moments just like its Magazine namesake. »
