Do any of you miss MADtv at all? I personally think it was much better than SNL. I find SNL to be a tad overrated. It's hardly given me as many laughs throughout the years as MADtv used to. I think part of the reason SNL got to keep going was because it's been around for so much longer that it's almost like a tradition & train that just keeps going even if the quality isn't quite always there. I really wish they could somehow bring MADtv once again, if not on FOX, perhaps another network, but there was some great content there.
Some of my favorite comedians featured there were Aries Spears, Michael McDonald (Stuart), Alex Borstein (Miss Swan, now of course better known for Family Guy), Artie Lange, Bobby Lee, & several others.
"In Living Color" of course was quite the classic itself, probably more than MADtv considering all the young talent it showcased. Unfortunately I wasn't always quite of the age exactly to appreciate it as much as I should've, but as I got older & caught some re-runs, I definitely was able to see how it was so popular. I'm surprised it lasted so shortly though.
How would you personally rank the three by your preference?
Also, if you don't mind sharing, who on any of these shows, were some of your favorite comedians to watch perform as well as some of your favorite characters created?
