I really wish we didn't have to worry about this, but it could very well be happening. We shouldn't panic about it though. It may or may not be canceled. We'll see, and in the meantime, we'll enjoy the show we have right now!

Also, I read some thread on another forum that pissed me off:

Like they would know comedy if it raped them up the ass.

What a bunch of ignorant dumbasses! their raped asses should cause them to get aids for saying this! This is like me saying I hate spinach when I have never tried it. I bet those guys have never seen one episode.

And I don't trust the source. He says that he works there but he hasn't seen the show in a decade. How could you not watch the show that you work at?

Well, everyone has their own say, so we can't stop them. They just don't know what they're missing out on. Again, this is another effect caused by SNL dominating the sketch shows. Meh.

@tvman: Well, since he already worked at the show, he's seen it all and probably feels no need to watch it anymore. Or he just doesn't want to be reminded of work. That's it.

I feel it was. When you haven't seen a show in 5 years but you still say it sucks then that makes me mad.

Defamer is reporting that the show is cancelled, although again the information comes from a "highly-placed source". But it looks like this might be true. This is a real shame; the show was getting a lot better this season and the new cast members have been great. I hope they go on to a lot more success elsewhere.

That's still a little preliminary but it still doesn't look good. I'm now thinking that this might be true. I'm waiting for more concrete evidence like from TV Guide or Fox or something but it's looking more and more possible. Although the source that this article uses may still be from a source we have already seen. Also this article says that they will finish out the season while blue lights link says that they are done now.

I was not the highly placed Defamer source in case you're wondering, so now you're hearing it from multiple places... Just a matter of time before the major outlets pick it up now.

Well, then. I guess it's true. Oh, well, all good things must come to an end I suppose.

Wikipedia says FOX has announced it already, but (surprise, surprise), there's no source. I hope whoever wrote this didn't check this board.

And on the subject of canceling the show being a lack of respect, I think announcing it NOW is a pretty respectful thing. At least then, maybe they can get some old cast members back, work on the season a bit, and go out with a bang. Personally, I had always figured MADtv would be canceled AFTER the season was already done, so they wouldn't get a send-off.

I posted a comment at the Defamer site about MADtv being cancelled as a reply to a person who wanted people to ask about naming one cast member from the series without going to the IMDB website and I mentioned the original cast members.

I agree with MAD here, and would like any MAD cast and crew to take heed: GO OUT IN STYLE, MAD. Cut the filler, don't settle for poor writing just for a few sex jokes, and get some old castmembers back for the final episode. Make it the 300th Episode that never really was. Devote it ALL to characters in new sketches. Think Stuart, Lorraine, Bunifa, Can I ha' yo' Numba, etc. a nice mix from all eras of MAD.

You know that wont happen, i wouldn't be surprised if they didn't even get to say a proper goodbye on the last episode IF this is the case.

I know it may seem like I am prolonging the inevidable but we still don't have accurate confirmation that the show is cancelled. All of the cancellation rumours are all being said by people who work in positions we are not aware of. Maybe somebody heard that MADtv was just going to lay off people and just said that MADtv was being cancelled. I know that sounds stupid but, I just got into this show, and I'm not ready to let it go yet. I just can't believe these rumours till I see a well credited article from a credited source with names of people.

Another thing: to me, it seems like, unless FOX wants to cancel their late night block altogether, it wouldn't make sense to completely can MADtv. If they try to push Spike Feresten and/or another show and they fail, then they don't have anything left. It would seem to be the most logical to put MADtv on the backburner for midseason just in case their replacement shows don't work.

But that's just my thought.

Well i looked all over FOX sites, and i do not see anything about canceling, only on source sites say, but FOX FLASH, FOX.COM, nothing talks about it, i do not get the point of ending the show.
