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:

From Stuart to Miss Swan, MADtv was home to some of the most iconic characters in sketch comedy!
But even though everyone is getting back together for the MADtv 20th Anniversary Reunion, it doesn't mean the cast is actually excited to revive their characters for the audience!
In a new clip from the special, Nicole Sullivan and Michael McDonald joke how they couldn't be less excited to bring back their old characters to life!

Sullivan even quipped:
"If I had to go up as the Vancome Lady, I would literally rather go on a casual drink date with Bill Cosby."
We guess we can expect no topic to be off limits during this reunion special — which includes

Is it Christmas already?!
We're not usually a fan of the huge ensemble cast movies, but this one has a unique twist that just might work.
The trailer for Love the Coopers dropped on Wednesday, and in addition to A-List actors, we think the fact that all the characters are related will give a nice warmth to the holiday movie.

Between MAD TV and Family Guy, she's been fairly profitable for them over the years. About time they gave something back!
Alex Borstein, best known as the voice of Lois on Family Guy, has just inked a fabulous deal with FOX that will allow her to develop, write and executive produce two pilot scripts for network! Should she want to star in either of them as well, so be it!
The two projects she's working on are an animated adult show and live-action comedy in the vein of Seinfeld and Roseanne.
The chairman of the network, in a statement released about the deal, called her "one of the most multitalented people in our business" and is excited to extend their long working relationship with someone so "gifted."
We're so happy for her! We think she's going to bring the funny in a major way!
