MADtv embraced its spoofiness even more than usual last night, as only one routine in the entire show was not based on an actual person and/or existing TV/movie concept. And that bit involved Bobby Lee and Johnny Sanchez interacting with people on a Los Angeles sidewalk, getting them to taste an awful "Rice and Beans" protein bar, all to see how desperate people are to get on TV. Which, as you already may suspect, is quite easy these days as people love getting themselves on TV. Which, as you may or may not have suspected, makes it all the more convenient that this episode also featured Audrina from The Hills, aka the one with the dark hair who has shown her breast implants to the world. New cast members Matt Braunger and Eric Price got more camera time in a couple of sketches — one, a series of eHarmony ad spoofs; the other, a segment from "Best Damn Sports Show Period" in which they play rival members of the Brett Favre Fan Club (Green Bay vs. New York). A back-and-forth bit alternating from an "Ikeaclasts" show and a "FOX News" breaking report going negative on Obama was a highlight. Nicole Parker does a really good impersonaton of Ellen DeGeneres. And, heck, why don’t I just show you the entire episode, through the magic of Hulu, and let you take a look. Then you can weigh in with your current thoughts about MADtv!
