Default Taping of MADtv

Has anyone here ever been to the taping of MADtv? I was just curious in the process of it all... Does the cast interact with the audience before the show and so on- and generally how long does it take to film an episode? Ta.

Hi Zac,
I was at a taping a few weeks ago. My daughter will be in episode 708(Ruthie in the 7th Heaven skit), to air on 12/1. Some shows are taped with an audience and some not. It takes several days to shoot as they commit a lot of time to each skit. Got to run, I'll tell you more later. Check out some of my other postings as I shared some stories from the tapings!

You should contact Mad TV as not all shows have a live audience.

Default Audience

I know in the first couple of seasons, you had to be 18 years old to be an audience member of MAD... has this changed now that the show has been gaining younger viewers?
