After seven years away, MADtv has returned for a 15th season — with a new cast and a new network. Is it the right time for a revival? How will this summer series perform for The CW in the ratings? Will it be cancelled again or will it be renewed for a 16th season? Stay tuned.
MADtv features pop-culture parodies and politically incorrect humor. The current cast of players include Jeremy Howard, Adam Ray, Carlie Craig, Chelsea Davison, Amir K, Lyric Lewis, Piotr Michael, and Michelle Ortiz.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.
9/28 update: You can see the rest of the latest night’s ratings.
Note: If you’re not seeing the updated charts, please try reloading the page. You can also see them here.
Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
