Sad Fitty Cent was basically the only thing we agreed on, but it was still an extremely entertaining review, as usual.

Well, I should explain that my rating system is internally governed by what kind of sketch we're dealing with; therefore, you can't really compare the rankings I give for longer sketches with the ones I give for short, interstitial moments. Thus, my overall ranking for the episode is weighted more heavily toward the longer sketches than the shorter ones; and a "" for a longer sketch is probably about the equivalent of a "" for a shorter sketch. That said, I was still expecting a lot more out of that Britney parody.

Edit: All right, I'll up the ranking for Britney to 3 1/2 stars -- but no more!

i watched the ep
it was weird.it felt like more a a variety show then a sketch show
and the opening credits are seriously just a carbon copy of SNLs opening.
so i'm not really a fan
however...i'm a big fan of nicole parker wearing sexy clothes as britney
HOT DAMN!!!
that makes the ep a winner for me

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE OPENING MADTV SONG BY HEAVY D????? WHaaaaaaaa

Overall, this premier was mediocre at best, and was garbage for a premier.

Johnny Sanchez .... hmmm not funny. They've had pegs for your bike since the 1980's, or maybe even earlier. Sorry, I'm just MAD right now about the whole thing. This seems very much like SNL. I wish it was cheaper looking, and had more sketches. It would seem like a longer episode with more fulfillment if they had more sketches.

Nichole, no more Britney! Please, I beg of you!

Master chief was very good, but the comedic timing was completely off, with the acception of Micheal's "Oh, you're jewish" bit.

I hate to say it, but we need Ike back. And Nichole RJ for that matter!

I hope they can prove me wrong that we don't need them back. sigh

Dissapointed. But I still have faith, because I yearn to be entertained! }:>}

I thought this was a pretty good premiere, although not perfect. I liked the Sad Fitty Cent & To Catch a Predator sketches the most.

The Britney sketch was probably the best one since Season 10. Maybe it was KFed that was killing the Britney sketches

24 with Bobby Lee was considerably weaker then the S12 24 sketches...the sketches are supposed to be pointless but this one had a fairly large plot...

I liked the Meeting Carlos Mencia sketches, but they were obviously filler.

Johnny Sanchez's stand-up was nothing special. Jen's New Boyfriend was ok but not great. Arden's red carpet event succeeded soley thanks to the guests, she seemed off this time.

Overall a pretty good premiere, but not excellent. I give it a B.

I liked the opening scene a lot including Nicole Parker's performance. Coming up with the unexpected appearance of Britney and using her quote was clever, and the timing was perfect too. I was really getting excited for the new season as I was watching it. The only way to make the whole thing better was if Nicole sang live. She's very talented!
