Did MAD TV Rip Me Off?

After producing and directing “The Riot Act” — a live sketch comedy show in Hollywood in 1995 — I sent a couple of the sketches I wrote to the producers of MAD TV as samples of my work.  Years later, I discovered they had subsequently produced a sketch that was incredibly similar to one of the scripts I sent them.  I have assembled the two videos back-to-back for comparison.  You be the judge.  What do you think?
