A simple question...
Do you think they'll ever bring back mst to television... an mst4k if you will.  That would be great

Do you mean new episodes? If so, then don't hold your breath. They tried to re-boot MST3K with Mike/Kevin/Bill and couldn't come to terms. Rumors around that Joel wanted to reboot and couldn't get it going. Now Mike has RiffTrax and Joel has Cinematic Titanic so.......

If you meant the old episodes returning... anything is possible. Some new upstart cable station could maybe license them and the movies that were riffed. I still wouldn't hold my breath though.

This would be kinda sad, like Shatner doing a new Star Trek series. I'd rather they all be put to sleep than have to endure such a fate.

I think it'd be more likely that ICWXP or Cinematic Titanic are commissioned for a TV series than a new MST3k.

Agreed. I'm surprised Comedy Central didn't call them yet.

I think the big issue first time around was Comedy Central didn't want to dedicate two hours to a show. That's probably an issue with lots of cable channels. They're rather show a one hour show twice for some reason.

What if Shout Factory licenced the episodes it has the rights for to be shown on a cable channel?

I wouldn't rule out the possibility of a revival film maybe 5 or 10 years from now ala Transformers or Speed Racer. Different cast, not nearly as good, but still interesting to see our characters up on the screen again.

I don't think Shout can do that. Best Brains would have to be the one setting up that deal.

i would love to have MST3K get some sort of syndication deal. I first discovered it in the mid 90s in that very way.

Is MST3K now more popular than when it was on Comedy Central or Sci-Fi? If it was a ratings bonanza it wouldn't have been canceled twice.

Don't see much reason to bring it back to TV. Maybe a reunion DVD movie, sure. Riffing some public domain Roger Corman film or something.

From what I've heard so far, the cast is too busy, or Best Brains wants to focus on making money of the DVD sets rather than make anything new.

with icwxp turning into a short riffing format with a full length for a finale, theyv got the best chance of making it to tv and honestly i really hope they do. they manage to capture some aspects  of the old show perfectly and thats awesome. this kind of comedy needs a new generation to see it on tv and i think theyre the ones to do it

I think TV is a dead medium.  MST4K as the author of the thread dubbed, IS rifftrax, and cinematic titanic.  I have gotten more friends into riffs than i ever managed with mst3k.

I think the problem is, most of us grew up watching those wretched movies on a Fiday or Saturday night horror show on locat TV staions.  We would sit around and make fun of how bad they were.  When we saw MST3K, It was a nice flash back to our youth.  We got all the references to 60's and 70's pop culture.  Nowadays, the generation comming up can't relate to those old moster/sci-fi movies.  They never had to sit through them because there was nothing else on.  My experience has been that, with a new generation, they are far more interested in seeing the newer movies riffed.  There will always be the core audience that still wants to see the old ones riffed, to be reminded of the MST3K days (while we're still kicking that is).

The great thing about Rifftrax IMO is that it appeals more to a new generation.  They include modern references ( like internet or YouTube sensations ) while still attracting us old farts.

To me, It's like wanting the Beatles to reunite.  It was great while it lasted, but the time has passed.

Long live Rifftrax and CT! 

P.S.  A shout out to all those IRiffers too.
