FOX GOES MAD FOR MORE LATE-NIGHT LAUGHS AS "MADtv" GEARS UP FOR ITS 13th SEASON

FOX has ordered a 13th season of the late-night comedy series MADtv, which airs Saturdays (11:00 PM-Midnight ET/PT) on FOX.

"MADtv continues to be a Saturday night staple, especially among younger audiences," said Todd Yasui, senior vice president, late night programming, for FOX. "We're happy to bring it back for another season of biting satire."

The Emmy-nominated series, best known for its dead-on celebrity impersonations and movie and television parodies, is a Late Night leader among Teens. The outrageous series from Quincy Jones/David Salzman's QDe Entertainment continues to lampoon everything from politics ("Black State of the Union") to movies ("Dreamgirls" and "Freedom Writers") to TV programs ("Survivor: Holy War" and "Grey's Anatomy"). MADtv has built an impressive array of recurring characters, including Michael McDonald's "Stuart" and "Dr. Phil," Bobby Lee's "�Blind Kung Fu Master," Nicole Parker's "Ellen" and "Britney Spears," Keegan-Michael Key's "Coach Hines" and "Snoop Dogg," Jordan Peele's "Morgan Freeman" and "Forest Whitaker" and Arden Myrin's "Tara Reid" and "Jillian Barbarie."

MADtv is a production of QDe.
