    Does anyone remember MadTV? The Emmy-winning show that gave SNL some sketch comedy competition from 1995 to 2009? If you do, we’ve got some good news: it’s coming back.
    While it doesn’t have a set premiere date yet, the CW announced today that they have planned for the show’s revival to the tune of eight hour-long primetime episodes. The announcement said the show will retain its familiar mix of pop-culture satire and politically incorrect humor, and the show’s old members will return as special guest hosts.

    The series revival comes off of a recent special CW aired, where they brought in many of their familiar faces for a look back at MadTV for its 20th anniversary. Telepictures will produce the show’s reboot, and David Salzman is set to return as executive producer alongside Mark Teitelbaum and John Montgomery.

    “The MADtv franchise is as vibrant as ever thanks largely to social and digital media appealing to a fan base numbering in the millions that relates to the show’s brand of authentic and irreverent cross-cultural comedy,” Salzman announced in a press release. “We will continue to present the hard-hitting, laugh-out-loud, wall-to-wall pop culture parody our fans expect, but in a fresh, new way.”

    Wasn't there some MadTV reunion show not too long ago and Artie filmed a segment for it and they cut it?

    When Jim Carrey was on it it was hilarious. After Jim Carrey, not so much.

    Maybe he can reprise the pig character. Instead of going out to score coke, he can leave to find heroin. He'll have a great story to tell for the next 15 years, if he makes it.
