What's going on with FOX canceling MADtv? Are they going to move Talkshow with Spike Feresten to take over MADtv's timeslot? Is FOX's decision to cancel MADtv a way to give Spike Feresten a boost in his raitings?Could Talkshow with Spike Feresten be a 90-minute show in order to be more compeditive with SNL? I guess a half-hour isn't long enough for Spike Feresten to have enough creative material. Spike Feresten was a great writer for Seinfeld, but he's the least funny of all late night talk shows. Spike's material is bland, and SNL has more creativity. With MADtv ending, Talkshow with Spike Feresten will soon follow.

Certainly not the best news I've heard all day. Far from, actually. I'll miss MADtv. Hopefully another outlet will pick it up.

I am so sorry that they have taken this show off the air--It was funny and very enjoyable-we need shows like this, we need to laugh at the end of the day--

I think Fox is Out of Touch and Out of Time!
A bunch of Republican zealots, I say...unless they change their minds on Mad TV..I will not tune into Fox much anymore!
