MADtv is not the lowest paid show on tv for a fact...

Steve Carrell Makes 200,000 a Episode, on the the first season of the office he reportedly made 70,000 dollars, but 15,000 is what a guest star would make people now come on if MADtv cast members make that then i am going to have to see sources because FOX is the #1 network and have gain Millions of dollars over there years and i know for a fact that a show like MADtv would have under pay there cast members because if i was on a show like MADtv and i drew ratings every week i would be asking for allot of money like will Ferrell made allot of money on SNL not because of his talent but because of his audience attention because People watch him. now come on i do not see MADtv being the lowest under paid show on TV. it is a similar thing to do Debra back in season 8



I got the information in a phone call with none other than Mo Collins herself.

And no I don't have a way to prove we talked aside from giving you her cell number which I'm not about to do.

I know Nicole and Bobby love sketch comedy but bottomline, Nicole Parker is leaving after 8 episodes (or so it seems for now). No point arguing about all that.

Jerk. I wasn't saying that she has to stay, I was just saying that she should.

I don't think Nicole Parker was "forced" onto Season 14, similar to how Bobby Lee said he wasn't returning but announced he was doing his 8th season on the show. I think it's a matter of personal choice; Nicole could have easily left the show regardless of what the powers above requested. The same thing applies to Bobby as well. Personally I think they're in it for the art of doing sketch comedy and, furthermore, they aren't on some twisted ego-trip like some of the past castmembers (not naming names because those of us who grew up with MAD know who they are).

$15,000 is more than enough to pay your pills, even with the taxes. Lowest paid cast on TV or not, they make way more than most high-ups that I know. Besides LA being said as an oh-so expensive place has some accuracy to it, but most of those ideas come from shows like Laguna Beach and THE HILLS portraying that LA is the most expensive place to live in.

You're right, but you know... It's insatiable.

Anyway, people move on because it's a way of life. Times change and so do people. Look at Michael, he eventually left the show even though he's the 'rock' of the show (in a sense).

15,000 is more than half of what most people earn a year. I think it will definitely pay your bills, keep you full and buy you a nice house to keep all your Emmy's in.

That's the reality. Sure, we fans would love to be on MADtv, even for the experience, but will it pay the bills and keep us full? Especially when you're living in a place that cost so much to live in (Hollywood, LA). As much as I hate to say it, the cast has to move on, even though that means we might never see them again.

(That wouldn't happen to Crista... would it? )

honourable, yet not everyone would think the way you do. Most people are really all about the money, no matter how much they say they're in it for the art, it really comes down to money. This is why we have strikes and people making 2 million dollars an episode on some shows.

People leave the show and move on, its been the way since the show began. As much as we don't like it. We don't own the people on the show, so they're free to leave when they want.


Besides who would want to stay on a show where the cast is the lowest paid cast on television, where the newbies only get paid 5,000 per episode BEFORE TAXES and depending on the veteran, only around 15,000 per episode BEFORE TAXES.

Default Are we Sure Nicole is Leaving Mid-Season

I just wanted to ask, since last season we all thought she was leaving at the end of season 13, and then she came back for season 14. Also, that 8 episode commitment was said back in February. I was just wondering if anything has changed since then, or maybe I'm just holding out on a stupid dream.

If I was Nicole (and the others) I would totally half-ass every performance next season. That's a horrid thing to do to her. Of course for our sakes I hope she doesn't do that X_X

Not at this time, no; the "assuming S14 hits" clause still applies. In the event that they're renewed, quite obviously, they need to be prepared.

thats sad that it isn't her wanting to come back but at least she'll be back.

This is the best news ever!!!!! I don't think that Nicole IS the show, but her and Crista are the best on the show imo, all the cast members add something, she is one of the best in my eyes! I'm so happy, even if it only is for 8 episodes! I hope Disney Girl appears once more before she leaves for good.
