Default WGA Picketers Disrupt MADtv Taping

Jesus! They're still taping? I thought they shut down.

-a saxophone, just successfully shut down a Mad TV location shoot in Hollywood's DeLongpre Park, where the show was trying to get footage for a sketch called "The Worst Magician in the World." With the unkillable series featuring no recognizable stars to take hostage for the cause, however, the marauding writers will have to settle for the satisfaction of having temporarily hobbled Fox's ability to profit from the exploitation of David Copperfield's misery.

They probably have enough scripts to last for at least a few more episodes.

Interesting to see that the strike interrupted the taping. Hopefully they'll realize this was a stupid idea and MOVE BACK TO THE ****ING STUDIO.

Geez these writers are getting out of hand. They were picketing outside of 30 Rock and Gossip Girl tapings yesterday. It's great that you're on strike but it seems now they're DELIBERATELY trying to ruin network TV by not even allowing these shows to tape some final, already-written episodes.

Jesus! They're still taping? I thought they shut down.
Well a handful of shows still have a few episodes that have been written but not taped, so they'll shoot those and then shut down.

Wow, I guess none of the writers from the WGA are "NOT" fans of MADtv at all
