Default MADtv renewed for three additional seasons!

As reported by reuters.com...
Fox also gave a three-year extension to its late-night sketch comedy show "MADtv," keeping it on air through 2008.
This is awesome news! It really made my day.

Hey, Mystere.

I hope that the show will be better by 2008. Who knows someone on this forum will be on the series as a cast member

Heart Oh, Happy Day!

I can't even begin to say how happy I am about this. I was starting to worry. But it wouldn't make sense for the show NOT to come back - now that there are SO many new fans because of Comedy Central! Let's hope this year they put some good commercials on FOX and start using the CAST more!!

Woo hoo! This is GREAT news!!

"Yeah, MADtv being renewed is so great, but wait -- Micheal and Mo won't be in the new episodes. Oh, well, it was great." Give me a f*cking break.
1) What happened to your post count?
2) Why all of a sudden are you so anti-everyone? What did we ever do to you?
3) 4 people have responded to this thread, and there are about 500 active members of this forum. Just because a few people are happy that the show is renewed doesn't mean that alot of long-time fans are happy, because people have stopped watching when certain cast members have left. I don't know where this anger came from all of a sudden, but you need to chill.

Glad you said it. I did say something similar but it made no sense so I deleted it.

And yes, chill man.

Oh yeah, and "yay" MADtv has been renewed. Never mind, I guess he wasn't banned. I think he is just going around deleting his posts.

Like I said, its ok I suppose that it got renewed but at the same time Sad because Mo didnt stick around long enough to see it happen.

Well damn. I sure am surprised! Didn't they always extend by 2 seasons? Good news for sure. Nicole Sullivan can guest star a few more times, hehe...

While it is good news that it got renewed, the show needs some serious help right now. In my opinion it is at the lowest point it has ever been at. Hopefully they find some new good talent and develop some creative recurring characters and stop relying so much on pop culture. Who knows? If it stays on the air long enough maybe MADtv's best season is yet to come.

This is great news. MADtv is getting more publisity by the day. For the record: I will never stop watching just because a castmember leaves. I didn't stop when Debra left, what could be worse than that?

Yeah, it's dumb to only watch the show for one person. I was really sad when Nicole left, but of course I kept on watching. Then Alex and Will then Debra then Mo and I'm still watching MADtv after it all.

Exactly. When you say something like, "I only started watching because of Nicole, and I stopped once she left," "Micheal is the whole reason I started watching the show. Now that he's gone, I have no reason to watch the show anymore," or "Stephnie's the only one I like. Once's she's gone, I'm going to stop watching," what sense does that make? How do you know the people coming in to replace them aren't funnier? I mean, Phil and Pat were my favorites, and once they left, I felt the show got worse, but it got better around season 7.

Plus the fact that your only chance of seeing them again on MADtv is if the show makes it to 300 episodes, or they guest star. If you stop watching... the show will be cancelled, and then that ruins all possibilities of them ever making an appearance.
