      Adam Ray is the only one from it I sometimes see in stuff, he played Leno in that Pam & Tommy thing recently, even hes like a D-list comedic actor at best

      i remember Bobby Lee saying as much when someone asked him on some podcast at the time why he thought the reboot failed, and Bobby said the only reason people liked the old show was because of how offensive it was, but that they made the new one too PC and didnt push the envelop and was watered down horseshit.

    It was incredibly mediocre. Like painfully mediocre. You can tell everyone on it was a diversity/nepo hire. No one knew how comedy works.

    This is like the only skit left on the internet I could find. Everything else as wiped out. I challenge you to laugh once watching this.

      Jesus, this is just shilling for that gay capeshit movie. Between the nepo cast, the probably nepo writers room, and this, the whole show is composed of Hollyweird grift.

      Some writer. Some israeli nepo hire was paid a salary, potentially 6 figures to write a 4 minute joke of "what if Suicide Prevention people were named Suicide Squad right when the movie of the same name came out"

      Wow......just.....wow

          So you think "look what I can do" or "he look-a like a man" was much funnier than that?

            I think Mad TV in general was funnier than that skit yes. There was no jokes there. They clearly were paid by the WB to force a skit to promote a capeshit movie you moron.

              I just named two of Mad TVs most well known skits that recurred for years because of how funny people thought they are.

                Your post where you pretend 13 years of a shows run was made up of two skits?
                The remake was cancelled after 3 months. It reviewed terribly. I am not playing your cherrypick game. The remake was an objective failure.

                I didn't say that. You said that.
                I referenced two skits that were clearly stand outs in that 13 year stretch as being examples of quality sketches. The fact that the reboot failed could be for any number of reasons. I don't think based on that one sketch the quality was markedly lower than the original stretch.

                The fact that it was cancelled after only 3 months and never renewed shows a lot of people agree it was shit

                The show failed because not enough people watched it because it was terrible. The OG show didn't have that issue and went on for over a decade

                Or because it wasn't the original cast, or because advertising fell short, or because it was in the wrong time slot, etc. etc.

                No a show gets cancelled when the ratings tank and it reviews poorly. Both that happened to this show.

                Meanwhile the funny OG show went for 14 seasons because it was better

                All of the things I said are reasons ratings might tank. If it was poorly reviewed that's another story.

                The reviews tell you why it tanked. Because it wasn't funny.

    you can't be funny anymore because in order to be funny you have to risk possibly offending someone. that's just the way comedy works. that's actually the way all art works.

      people don't want to admit that old Mad TV worked because the stereotypes were pretty accurate
