Default Michael McDonald calls it a day

I had some sad news from my inside source today. I just got a message that confirmed six-season cast member, Michael McDonald will NOT be returning to MADtv for season ten. I got no reasons as to why he isn't coming back but it likely has to do with the fact he's been on for quite some time now. That's my guess anyways. Mike, if you read this, we're going to miss you! Good luck in whatever new tasks you do!

This is really upsetting to me cuz I feel like Michael is the most important person to me in the world and now he's leaving and I won't get to see him anymore and my life will be totally over

It was probably to be expected that he would leave MAD after this season, as wasnt he supposed to leave last season as well? But his sitcom wasnt picked up so he came back at the last minute, for a conditional one season contract is my guess, i couldnt see him sign on for another 3 seasons. With the changing cast it would also probably be hard for him to stay on the show (no more Mo!).
Hopefully he will be in other projects after he leaves MAD TV, if that gives you any comfort MikeMcDonaldGrl

They was one more Stuart sketch taped according to Rockstarjoker, its just with Stuart and his next door neighbour (Paul) as the foil.

I read this before a lecture, and I agree, it is pretty sad. But I think this could also be a blessing. Michael has been on the show for 6 years now, and a number of the recurring characters (popularity not pending) are filled by him. And it's due to his popularity. I think this could help establish the other cast members, like Paul, Ron and Josh, because they will all need to step and fill roles left empty by him. I'm going to miss him alot, but I'll still keep watching. If Keegan and Jordan (and of course Nicole) come back next season, I think the show will be fine. But anyway, I'm sure Mike, like Nicole S will make numerous guest appearances. Maybe that's why Ted Michael's wasn't introduced this season? Filling Michael's role on the show next season perhaps?

It would have been respectful (IMO) if they asked Mo to come back to film the final Stuart sketch... even though I highly doubt this will be the final Stuart sketch, because Mike will probably be actively involved in the show from here on out. I had a feeling this might have been coming when he took on the role of Director, but I decided against it... and now it's true. And MikeMcdonaldGrl, DON'T WORRY! Mike is well known in Hollywood, he is a great actor and he should have no trouble finding work. He's awesome.

But there is a downside to this news also. Okay, so Mike is leaving, Frank and Bobby will be going into their 4th seasons and Stephnie will be going into her 5th. The other 4 guys will be going into their 3rd season, and Aries into his 8th. I was praying to God that the hiring of 2 African American males this season was to remove Aries (I'm sorry, I don't mean to sound rude, but he just drags sketches down so badly IMO) and Michael would stick around next season for the "familiarity" aspect. Will this mean that Aries is staying on, and that one of Keegan/ Jordan will leave?

Jim, I think so. I think they will bring back Keegan and Jordan will be dumped.
