MADtv ends run, enters final season

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.

Veronica's Logan joins Moonlight, Gilmore's Luke joins Aliens in America.

Casting continues for new shows

As production begins for the many new shows headed to network television this upcoming season, execs are filling in the casting holes, which have opened up since the programs were given the old green light.

And for execs looking to boost their shows' profiles, there's no better talent pool than the many actors left without work after their shows got cancelled.

Scott Patterson, last seen on CW's Gilmore Girls, has taken a role on the new comedy Aliens in America, also from CW, says The Hollywood Reporter. On Gilmore, Patterson played Lorelai's fair-weather boyfriend Luke Danes.

Aliens follows the friendship between two Wisconsin high school students, one of which belongs to a traditional Christian family and one who is a foreign exchange student from Pakistan. Patterson is taking the role of the American teen's dad, replacing Patrick Breen, who played the dad in the pilot.

Talkshow mixes elements of a talk show and comedy sketches.

Network rolls out big guns in late August; Fringe to follow House, Dollhouse set for midseason.

Fox moves fall to late summer

Fox was the last of the major networks to unveil its 2008-2009 prime-time schedule, and from the looks of it, it used its position to its advantage.

Though the new most-watched network was last to present its schedule to advertisers in New York City, it looks as though it will be first to show its new programming to viewers. Fox will kick off its season in late August with a week of two-hour premiere events in an effort to build up audiences early, beginning with the debut of Prison Break's fourth season on August 25.

That is followed the next day by the debut of what Fox hopes will be the next big television hit: J.J. Abrams' new sci-fi action show Fringe. Fringe, one of two new shows in Fox's ...

Fox's fall begins mid-September
tca_header.jpg

Ask any normal person when the fall starts, and they'll generally say, "During the September equinox, when the sun crosses the equator and nights are just as long as days." OK, most people will probably just say sometime in September, but for those who worship the boob tube, the season of fall begins when television network execs say it does.

Fox unveiled its fall lineup yesterday, and according to its programming directors, late August will be the beginning of the end of summer, and fall will really kick into gear on September 17.

The reality specialist will roll out its bread and butter on August 30, with the series premiere of the grade-school beatdown Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader at 8 p.m. On September 8, justice will be served with the season premiers of Cops and America's Most Wanted: America Fights Back.

Network pushes fall premieres from late August to early September; Prison Break leads charge September 1.

Fox slides sched back a week

Fox surprised some people in the middle of last month when it announced that it would kick off its fall season in late August, about a week earlier than the rest of the networks. August 25 was to see the two-hour fourth-season premiere of Prison Break, followed by more two-hour specials during the rest of the week.

Well, it turns out Fox was just playing around. The network readjusted its schedule yesterday, pushing everything back a week and lining up with its rivals.

The fourth season of Prison Break will now bow on September 1, with two-hour premieres of Bones (September 3), The Moment of Truth (September 4), and Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader (September 5) following.

The following week will see the more traditional Fox fall lineup take shape, with premieres of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles on ...

A similar show to Saturday Night Live and In Living Color, sketch comedy series MADtv mines the world of popular culture for subjects ripe for parody. Based on the comic stylings of MAD magazine, the series satirizes celebrities, music videos, television shows, and more through outrageous sketches, a unique assembly of recurring characters, and the uninhibited zaniness of cast members.

MADtv is now currently in its 13th season on FOX. During the season, MADtv can be viewed on FOX at 11:00 p.m. (est) on Saturday nights. Reruns of episodes from the series can be viewed in syndication on Comedy Central at various times.moreless
