HOT FROM FOX...

JERRY SPRINGER, JEFF PROBST AND PEREZ HILTON TO HOST "MADtv" THIS SEPTEMBER ON FOX

FOX's Emmy Award-winning late-night comedy series MADtv kicks off its 13th season with three special episodes to be hosted by Jerry Springer, Jeff Probst and Perez Hilton, respectively, on Saturdays, Sept. 15, Sept. 22 and Sept. 29 (11:00 PM-Midnight ET/PT) on FOX.

During the season premiere airing Saturday, Sept. 15 (11:00 PM-Midnight ET/PT), Springer ("The Jerry Springer Show," "America's Got Talent," "Dancing With the Stars"), the king of outrageous behavior, hosts "MADtv Ruined My Life: The Outrageous Sketches That Shocked a Nation." From the set of his talk show, Springer and his audience examine MADtv's most controversial classics, including "The Wizard of Oz: The Lost Footage," Michael McDonald's "Secret Skill" and "Hot In Here," a music video lampooning the church sex scandals.

Then Probst, the host of "Survivor," takes a break from "reality" and gets his hands dirty hosting "Survivor: MADtv" on Saturday, Sept. 22 (11:00 PM-Midnight ET/PT). Straight from the streets of Hollywood, Probst checks out the cream of MADtv's television satires, including "The Sopranos" (featuring Will Sasso as "Tony Soprano") and "Grey's Anatomy" (featuring Bobby Lee as "Dr. Cristina Yan"), as well as a parody of himself (starring Michael McDonald as the ultimate "Survivor" host).

The self-proclaimed "Queen of All Media," Perez Hilton, hosts "I WANT My MADtv" � a special pop-culture episode featuring popular music videos, celebrity impersonations and commercial parodies airing Saturday, Sept. 29 (11:00 PM-Midnight ET/PT). Hilton is a famed blogger and TV personality (www.perezhilton.com).

MADtv's edgy comedy has made this award-winning sketch comedy show a FOX Saturday-night staple. Noted for its signature characters, celebrity impersonations and biting pop-culture commentaries, MADtv welcomes returning cast members Michael McDonald, Bobby Lee, Nicole Parker, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Arden Myrin and Crista Flanagan. Four new cast members include Anjelah Johnson, Johnny Sanchez III, Daheli Hall and Dan Oster. The returning cast has created such wildly popular characters as McDonald's "Stuart," Lee's "Blind Kung Fu Master," Parker's "Ellen DeGeneres," Key's "Coach Hines," Peele's "Morgan Freeman," Myrin's "Tara Reid" and Flanagan's "LuAnn" and will soon introduce Johnson's "Tammy, the Nail Lady," Sanchez's "Farhid, the Kite Salesman from the Middle East," Hall's "Oprah" and Oster's "American Jerk."

MADtv is a production of QDe. The executive producers are David Salzman, Quincy Jones, John Crane and Bruce Leddy.
