Post "MADtv" News: Tapings, Guests, and Bobby's Bye-Bye

We can now safely say that Season 13 of "MADtv" has officially begun! The information found here confirms that the season premiere (Episode #1305) is being taped tonight at 9:00pm EST/6:00pm PST at the Music Box, located inside the Henry Fonda Theater in Hollywood, CA. The site also confirms the future appearances of three guest stars. First is 'N Sync's own Joey Fatone, whose appearance will be taped on Thursday, November 1st, and will likely air on November 10th (Episode #1306). The other two guest stars will be taping on Tuesday, November 13th, for what one can rightly presume is the landmark 300th episode (Episode #1307). At 9:00pm/6:00pm PST, everyone's favorite Kenny Rogers impressionist, Will Sasso, will tape his "MADtv" appearance at the Music Box. So far, Will is the only alum whom we can confirm for the 300th, although the official "MADtv" site states that several of the series' alumni will indeed be returning for that landmark episode. The other guest star scheduled to tape an appearance on the 13th is self-proclaimed D-list comedian Kathy Griffin, at 11:30pm EST/8:30pm PST; so we can reasonably assume that she too will grace our TV screens for the 300th episode. Is Nicole Parker planning to revive her Kathy Griffin impression for the occasion, hackneyed Botox jokes and all? Will another alum named Nicole (i.e., not the one with two last names) join Will for the 300th, as everyone and his monkey's uncle keeps predicting? Will Joey Fatone announce an 'N Sync reunion as the audience members light torches and charge the stage? Tune in to find out.

In other news, Bobby Lee has announced on his official MySpace page that Season 13 of "MADtv" will definitely be his last on the show. No further details are known at this time; nevertheless, given the prospect of Bobby's Comedy Central series as well as his overall desire to extend his fame beyond "MADtv," one is hardly surprised by the news of his departure. Uh-oh, bye-bye!

UPDATE (10/26): What was once speculation can now be confirmed. According to FOX, Carlos Mencia will indeed guest-star in Episode #1305, which airs November 3rd. Carlos and his good friend Bobby Lee will appear together in another of Bobby's patented "24" TV parodies. Also look for Johnny Sanchez to debut his standup routine for "MADtv" in #1305. The anticipation is downright palpable!

Ugh, Carlos Mencia for the premiere? Hopefully it isn't a bomb, it doesn't sound too promising.

I hope Will isnt the only 300th ep alum...I dont think he will be.


As for Bobby leaving...IT'S ABOUT TIME!!!! .

Ah, Bobby Lee and Carlos Mencia -- the foolproof recipe for comedy success!

The bright side, I suppose, is that this sets the stage nicely for an appearance by Oster's Jack Bauer. Fingers crossed!

For those who aren't following what we're talking about, Carlos is confirmed for #1305 as well. Expect a story update to reflect this later tonight.

All I know is I'm stoked to finally see Crista back in action! Oh and as far as Bobby Lee leaving after Season 13, ehhh I'm not moved. No offense to the Bobby fans; I just never found him interesting.

Best of luck to Bobby after S13....

It makes you think...MadTV has a scary possibility of losing many of its veteran cast members next season...which makes me think that they will go all out to resign the core veterans (who might be leaving) McDonald, Peele, Key, and Parker. As for McDonald, I don't think he'll leave because he's directing/acting right now...MadTV is his show, and he's not going anywhere. Peele said before that S13 would be his last...maybe the producers can convince him to stay. And I'd love to see Key and Parker stay on.

Well, it's half a recipe anyway. Bobby just needs to pick better friends.

I will NOT sit through anything with Mencia in it. Anyone who finds him funny in any way is automatically dead to me ;|

I'd be willing to make a wild guess on who will be there for 300.
I'd say 5 or 6 cast members (no more than that)
Will Sasso is one for certain.
Nicole Sullivan is one for almost certain.

Then you get into uncertain territory. I imagine Debra Wilson will be there (who cares if she has an ongoing riff with the producers; she'd be coming back for her fans, not for the producers), Alex Borstein, Mo Collins, and Phil LaMarr would be my other guesses.

I can't believe they're getting Mencia. God, he better not ruin the premiere.

If we're lucky then hopefully we'll get to see Mencia in just the "24 with Bobby Lee" sketch and that's it.

Default to "JustG"

really dude??? you don't find me interesting at all. well, i don't find the medium of sketch that interesting. i did everything i could to get off the show my first 5 years and yet the producers and the network said NO. you act as if i'm happy to be there. i know that i'm not a natural sketch player and i am not technically as good as my cast mates. i know my weakness's. and yet, there are things that i do behind the scenes that you aren't aware of. there are cast members that are beloved to you that i have helped. i know that i'm not interesting to you but i'm glad that the comedy community, fans, and family feel otherwise.

Even though it says "Cast member," I can't help but believe this is fake.

I don't think Bobby Lee's that bad- I mean, I did give him the dubious honor of being the best cast member of Season 13... I think though in general we're a little too hard on Bobby.
