MADtv is a comedy television series in the United States. First broadcast on October 14, 1995, the successful show is Fox Network's only late night program. The one-hour show airs Saturday nights on FOX and is in syndication on Comedy Central. It is a spin-off from MAD magazine.

The format of MADtv is simple sketch comedy and humor. Skits and sketches are performed in a manner similar to other variety shows. Recurring characters include The Vancome Lady, Stan the Coffee Man, Miss Swan, and, most famously, Stuart.

Comparisons with NBC's Saturday Night Live are inevitable with both shows airing at the same time. Many believe that MADtv's humor is edgier than that of its long-running competitor.
