Stuart, what does mama say about giving us AH-Mazing news?!
Saturday Night Live may be the reigning sketch show on TV, but its main competition from the '90s and '00s is about to get back in the race.
That's because The CW announced on Monday that they are officially bringing MADtv back with an eight-episode order!

As you may remember, the network previously celebrated the comedy series' 20th anniversary with a one-time special back in January, and the 1.6 rating must have been enough to warrant a whole new season!
Original executive producer/showrunner David E. Salzman will be heading this reboot as well, and confirmed the good news in a statement, saying:
"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. 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."
Current primetime stars like Keegan-Michael Key, Alex Borstein, Jordan Peele, Ike Barinholtz, and Taran Killam got their starts on the series, so hopefully they'll pop up at some point in the revival.
Will U be watching MADtv when it returns to The CW sometime in the 2016-2017 season??
