MADtv Returns on The CW: How Does the Revival Compare to the Original?

26 July 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Tuesday was a big TV night for Hillary Clinton. Across all major news networks, she accepted the Democratic nomination for President of the United States of America. And over on The CW, she berated her husband for “boinking interns.”

The latter, of course, was an impersonation — one Nicole Sullivan herself describes as “mediocre at best” — as part of MADtv‘s long-awaited return to television.

‘Don’t Think Twice’ Star Keegan-Michael Key On How To Tackle Comedy In This Divisive Political Climate – Q&A

20 July 2016 11:20 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For nearly two decades, Keegan-Michael Key has been tirelessly chiseling out a successful path in comedy. Name a standout sitcom from “Reno 911” to “How I Met Your Mother,” “Parks and Recreation” to “It’s Always Philadelphia,” “Modern Family,” “The Muppets” or “Ricky and Morty,” and Key has popped by to add his hilarious flare. The path began back in 2004 when he was cast on “MADtv,” and eventually led to he and castmate Jordan Peele spawning their own sketch show, the critically heralded and sharply satirical “Key and Peele.”

Through all of the above, Key has shown himself to be one of the boldest and most entertaining comedy performers working today. But in his new film, “Don’t Think Twice,” the funny man smoothly slides into drama. Which turns out to be an important next step for the challenge Key’s looking to take on next.
