''Mad TV'' is a 1991 SimulationGame for MS-DOS and the UsefulNotes/{{Amiga}}, which casts you as an executive producer working for one of the three competing TV stations that occupy the same building. By buying movies, signing ad contracts and setting up the daily schedule, you're trying to get your company to the top. Your ''real'' objective, though, is to win the heart of the sexy culture show host, Betty... though your two competitors have the exact same motivation.
