MadTV celebrates 10th Anniversary with special appearances from former cast members

Tonight, Mo Collins makes a special appearance. She played the recurring characters of Lorraine and Stuart's mother among others. Last week, Debra Wilson and Nicole Sullivan returned to favorite roles and the prior week, Alex Borstein made an appearance to play the hilarious Ms. Swan. And who can forget Will Sasso who returned to play the drunken, crazy Kenny Rogers.

Next week, Artie Lange, one of the original cast members (the fat guy) makes a special appearance.

Good reason to watch MadTV. Has anyone been watching lately?

It's great that the former cast members could get time off from their jobs waiting tables and delivering pizzas to reappear on the show.

One things for sure: there's more funny in a single skit from this show than an entire 90 minutes of SNL.

I would watch if Phil Lamarr came back to do the UPS guy. Those skits always killed me.

I disagree as well. I don't know why but I've never laughed at a MadTv sketch the same way I laughed at an SNL sketch. Also, it just doesn't really hold my attention.

I agree. Like any show like this there are still some clunkers, but for the most part the "Funny bit to laim bit ratio" is better than SNL's.

This has been on for 10 years??? It's amazing that MAD took their name off of "Up The Academy" right after it came out because of how bad it was, but they endorse this crap!

Artie should re-enact the story of how he got kicked off the show. He's told it on Stern a couple of times. If I recall correctly he had been on a coke binge for about a week when the show and his manager decided to have an intervention. When he realized what was happening he ran out, punching his manager on the way. The cops come to the lot and he ran, obviously a man in his condition doesn't get far, so he took a swing at the cop and ended up getting arrested for that, plus possession.
