Failure to mention "Married... With Children" and "The X-Files" invalidates the topic.

Oh no im ok...lol thank god.

MADtv is a defined show and it has made history for 14 years, many shows in late night history on FOX has tried but never succeeded, and no In Living Color was not late night lol...anyways many shows tried on Late Night but never actually got to the top.

Back then Late Night TV was huge just Wrestling (WWF/WCW) was huge...but in 1995 there was a Slight slump because WWE back in 1995 they were going into a slump with the Monday Night wars when Nitro came on the Same time slot and same day and WWF was getting there asses handed to them in ratings from 1995-1999, for if i am not wrong 108 consecutive weeks straight of losing into ratings...WWF beat Nitro in the Ratings in 1999-2001 until Vince Bought the company for Ted. my point is that WWE had a Boom period and just like the economy there is a up and down system. MADtv never had that UP and DOWN system until After Season 10, i don't MADtv had a Slump until Season 13 when the Ratings slightly went down going into Season 14...but MADtv manage to keep a audience for 10 years is wow...because many shows drop in ratings after the 6th or 7th season, maybe the 5th season. i was reading that Annoying Site and it said Step Weir help bring the Slump up, what slump did MADtv had in Season 6-7 in ratings....NOTHING!..maybe the fans did not like the writing or quality of the show but ratings were great.
