MADtv returns, with a new cast and a new network, and in prime-time.

But the sketch-comedy show is setting up for the same shenanigans.

Alums include Aries Spears, Alex Borstein, WIll Sasso, Frank Caliendo, Phil LaMarr, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele. Some of them are scheduled to make guest appearances on the rebooted show.

Executive producer David E. Salzman told TV Guide that "the MADtv POV is largely intact."

One can only hope.

This week in home entertainment

Barbershop: The Next Cut is funnier than it has any right to be, more than a decade after the last movie in the franchise. But gut laughs come. And they go, too. There's a serious message underneath the glitz of the now-famous Hollywood heavyweights in the film: Take care of your neighborhood before the wrong people take care of it for you. Ice Cube, of course, heads the cast as the shop is in peril again. But he's joined again by Anthony Anderson, Cedric the Entertainer, Eve and Sean Patrick Thomas, who has graduated from barber to the mayor's office. Along with a roll call of well-known and well-regarded actors -- Common (Suicide Squad); JB Smoove (Fresh off the Boat); Deon Cole (Angie Tribeca, blackish); Regina Hall (The Best Man franchise); Lamorne Morris (New Girl) -- the franchise showed it had some life in it yet.

Also out this week: The BossConsumptionCriminal; Grantham & Rose; Family Matters: The Complete Seventh SeasonHardcore Henry; I Am Wrath; Mystery Science Theater 3000 XXXVIRiverSing Street; and The Zombie King.
