MADtv parodies Studio 60 -- VIDEO
I have never been a big fan of MADtv; however, whenever I catch it while flipping channels what I see isn't too bad. This is especially true when the show parodies television shows. For example, a few weeks ago I saw a skit featuring Family Guy creator Seth McFarlane wondering how his show would have looked as a live-action comedy. It was quite amusing (and I wish I could find a clip of it on the Internet).
So, when TV Squad fan SJ (yes, we have fans!) hinted us about a parody that MADtv did of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip I decided to take a look. The name of the parody is Studio 69 on Van Nuys Boulevard. Instead of focusing on a fictional late-night comedy show the parody focus on a fictional late-night porn show filmed in front of a live studio audience and transmitted to millions of service men around the world. The MADtv writers were frighteningly accurate when emulating all of Aaron Sorkin's traits. There's the caustic, yet charming and funny, director of the porn show, plenty of walk-and-talks, and even a prayer circle scene, reminiscent of one we saw in the second episode of Studio 60.
The video can be found after the jump. By the way, I'm going to be copyrighting that 'live porn in front of a studio audience' thing. So, you can all just step back!
