    Neither. When I feel like watching sketch comedy, I'll gladly take the Kids in the Hall reruns over SNL or MAD.

    During the first seasons, MadTv was way better. Phil LaMarr and the rest of the cast were brilliant. Later, Will Sasso, Alex Borstein and Pat Kilbane were good too. The comedy was fast and witty. Now it's all smut for the sake of smut. The writing has gone way downhill.

    SNL's been flat since Phil Hartman left.

    By the way, where's Tim Meadows? that guy disappeared...

    I get my sketch comedy ya ya's with Monty Python, Blackadder and Absolutely Fabulous.
