Sure, Saturday Night Live may be getting all the attention with its "hilarious" (term used loosely) take on the presidential election, but there's another sketch-comedy show that's been delivering the yuks late at night as well. Fox's MADtv is in its 14th season of lampooning celebs and serving up politically incorrect laughs, but all good things must come to an end.
Fox today announced that MADtv will be ending its lengthy run at the conclusion of this season. MADtv debuted in 1995, making this season its 14th cycle...not too shabby for a late-night show.
MADtv was known for not pulling many punches, making fun of celebrities such as Whitney Houston, Kenny Rogers, Britney Spears, Morgan Freeman, and Ellen DeGeneres, as well as creating original characters such as Stuart, Ms. Swan, and Coach Hines.
The final episode of MADtv will be its 326th and will air in May next year. MADtv airs on Saturday nights at 11 p.m. on Fox.
