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.… Expand

Mad TV has an edginess that Lorne Michaels' once revolutionary show [SNL] has long lacked. ... Of course, Mad TV is not without its lapses. Though it has steadily improved since its unpromising early episodes, there are still sketches so heavy-handed in their attempt to appear politically incorrect that they are virtually unwatchable.
