Default Is MADtv a "Variety Show"?

I wouldn't say so anymore. For it to be a "Variety Program", it should have 'variety'. MAD used to do sketches in these formats...

-Movie Parodies
-TV Parodies
-Commercial Parodies
-Music Video Parodies
-One-Off Sketches
-Political Satire
-Recurring Characters, Impressions
-Live Sketches (Show openings, monologues, closings)
-Cartoons/ Claymation

But now the balance is way off and some of the above listed don't appear very often or not at all. What do you guys think? I think if they did a better variety again, we'd get better shows.
