I hope it goes on as long as SNL,too. Just because it's clearly not as good as it used to be doesn't mean it won't get better. SNL has had many slumps and they're still on the air. Just bring back the original cast and the original writers, pay them whatever they ask for, let Artie do all the drugs he wants, and the show will be fine.

Mad TV has got a contract on Fox which expires at the end of next season. That means we can look forward to a Season 8, but after that, it's on the bubble.
I, personally, am hoping Mad TV signs with another network, because of the small budget that Fox is handing out.

Mad TV will likely be on the air for as long as SNL because it has the potential for it. It is extremely popular, funny, you don't have to worry that much about cast changes because sketch shows can handle this very well. As long as people and events happen that can be parodied, MadTV will be there for us. THe only thing that could end the show is of the following factors...
---Fox goes bankrupt or some other financial problem interferes.
---writers suck really bad, cast really bad, unlikeable.
---Too many "popular" cast members leave and cannot be properly replaced. Like if Mike, Mo, Alex, Aries, Debra, Will...etc... left all at once, the show would be too different and seem like a whole new show. But then again, look what happened to Destiny's Child, LOL!!!

I want to send this thread into a slightly different direction now...
What do you think will happen in the VERY LAST episode of MadTV?

I think that it will end just like any other season finale not knowing that it actually is the series finale. Therefore, characters will have no ending sketch, like Antonia, and the cast will move and get jobs on SNL. Andrew Daly is so boring that he'll blend in nicely on that show. They'll probably have a music guest and some big Hollywood star guest host but no former cast members!
