Question Why 30 minutes, TNN??? WHY?

WHY does TNN cut Mad TV episodes in half? I mean, I understand why Comedy Central cuts a half hour off of SNL because that show's an hour and a half, but TNN cuts their Mad episodes in half, you lose all the good sketches. And they usually show two in a row anyway, why not keep the whole thing?

I REALLY would love to see ENTIRE episodes in syndication. Not edited ones.

And it's soooo innecessary too. Instead of 1/2 hour, put whole show on and play entire episode back to back of eachother. They won't go through them as fast that way.

Tell me about it! I don't even waste my time with the ones on TNN. They do pick the worst sketches and air them back to back. For that, show the whole damn episode!
