Any idea where I can find Mad TV besides on YouTube. I do have internet television but unable to find that show.

It's available on DVD. On Amazon I found the first season for $13.95.

Does anyone remember Fridays? If you are under the age of 45 you probably don't. That's also on DVD. The Battle Boy sketches are some of the funniest things I've ever seen.

Fridays introduced us to Michael Richards, later "Kramer" on Seinfeld.
Fridays was the first place I ever saw Prince on TV, and thinking, "holy sh*t!"

Used to watch it on ABC Friday nights at 11:30. ABC-TV’s answer to Saturday Night Live back in the 70’s. Richards was also in Weird Al’s movie “UHF” I think from 1986.

Not to be a smart ass but Fridays was on from 1980 to 1982, (three seasons. 58 episodes.) Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm creator Larry David was also a cast member. Other cast members Melanie Chartoff, Maryedith Burell, and Bruce Maher made appearances on Seinfeld. It was canned because Nightline wanted the Friday night slot. It aired once in prime time but the ratings weren't good.

UHF came out in 1989. Michael Richards played Stanley Spedowski, a janitor who becomes a kids show host. He was also in a very strange movie called Whoops Apocalypse.

It's on HBO Max. I was really surprised to see it there to be honest.

You’re not a smart ass, sorry if my dates are incorrect. That what happens when you get old. I just had another Joe Biden moment.
