Mad TV is No More and Other Cancelations

The long running Fox comedy sketch series has been canceled. After fourteen years on air, production will end after this season. The decision was made by Fox due to high production costs and low ratings. Co-Creator Dan Salzman will shop the show to other broadcasters.

More Cancelations:

NBC axes "Lipstick Jungle" and "My Own Worst Enemy" due to the obvious: low ratings.

NBC needs original programming, not shows trying to succeed on the heels of "The Office" and other overseas successes. Nor should they have tried to create a carbon copy of former HBO program "Sex in the City". There has to be fresh writing talent out there. Open your minds, executives! I only care because NBC is my former employer, and I'm like a spurned lover who can't get over the old affair.
