Pamela Anderson Gets Lucky on the 250th Episode of "MadTV" Saturday, November 12, on FOX

[via press release from FOX]


Actress/author/designer Pamela Anderson, star of FOX's hit comedy series STACKED, will guest-star on the special 250th episode of MADtv Saturday, Nov. 12 (11:00 PM-Midnight ET/PT) on FOX.

In this milestone episode, Anderson portrays a lucky contestant on "Wheel of Fortune" who keeps getting breaks from host "Pat Sajak" (Ike Barinholtz) because he's smitten with her. When the chips are stacked in her favor, the other contestants get angry because she's given extra spins, points and, of course, attention. In another sketch, Pam plays Ike Barinholtz's hot grandma who stops by the set, where she quickly discovers his friends want more than just a little hug.

Anderson joins many talented stars scheduled to make guest appearances on MADtv during November, including Christopher Meloni ("Law and Order: SVU", scheduled to appear on Saturday, Nov. 19, as well as Jeff Garlin ("Curb Your Enthusiasm ") and WWE's John Cena, who are scheduled to appear on Saturday, Nov. 26.

MADtv's refreshing humor has made this award-winning sketch comedy show a FOX Saturday-night staple, noted for its signature characters, celebrity impersonations and edgy pop-culture commentaries. MADtv cast members include Ike Barinholtz, Frank Caliendo, Daniele Gaither, Keegan-Michael Key, Bobby Lee, Michael McDonald, Nicole Parker, Jordan Peele and Stephnie Weir. The hilarious cast has created such popular characters as McDonald's "Stuart" and "Marvin Tikkvah," Weir's "Dot" and "Angela," Lee's "Kim Jong Il" and "Connie Chung," Caliendo's "John Madden" and "Jay Leno," and Parker's "Ellen DeGeneres" and "Britney Spears." Featured cast member Crista Flanagan returned this season along with three talented new cast members: Frank Caeti, Nicole Randall Johnson and Arden Myrin.

STACKED, starring Pamela Anderson as a free-spirited woman who, in the quest for stability in her wild rock 'n' roll lifestyle, works at a small, family-owned bookstore, returns for its second season premiere Wednesday, Nov. 9 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. Last season the series was the No.1-rated new comedy in Adults 18-49.
