Joel wants to reboot the show with a new host.

Just saw this, not sure how to feel. A new host would be awesome, but who? David Cross? Louis CK? Patton Oswalt?

If they were able to get someone famous to be the host, then Patton Oswalt would be a great fit.  It'd be kinda weird though.

I personally would prefer an unknown or relative unknown for the host role.

I was bieng threated with death by wolf raping before it was cool!.

Finally, my dream of having a letter read on MST3K can be realized. I'd try out to be an intern, but somewhere between the lost income and the immersion in bad movies and my wife would absolutely leave me. That and neither of us are in a hurry to move to Minnesota.

Yes, stick with the letter.

Mike was a *way* better host that the new person/host/thing.

It just says "host." But what about Tom and Crow? Would Trace and Josh return, I wonder?

I'd guess the new host would be a relative unknown or comedian with a cult following, possibly one who's already close with Joel and the other former Brains. Maybe Joseph Scrimshaw?

In regards to "David Cross? Louis CK? Patton Oswalt?"
No, no, and.... much closer, but I don't think so (wait, maybe as a robot voice).  And I really like all those guys, but only Patton seems like the right fit.

I'm not sure who would make a great host.  I think the closest to me would be Paul F Tompkins.  He's a bit older than I'm sure some might want from a new host, but he has experience and a certain attitude that I think works well for it.  Paul Scheer might be good.  Not only because he already hosts a bad movie podcast, but also because he has the "good natured doof" element an MST3k host needs.  Granted, he said that he's not interested in riffing (saying Rifftrax and Cinematic Titanic are already doing a fine job), I still think he would be great for it.

You know who would make a great mad?  Ron Funches.

So Joel is going to go back in the studio? Wasn't that unprofitable for Cinematic Titanic? I just hope they are real sets and not green screen backdrops like they did on that Rhino bit about the Godzilla disc getting pulled.

I expect they would rebuild the sets for a new series. Of course it wasn't worth it for one five minute video, but it would be worth it for a new season.

Yeah seems strange that he couldn't make a low cost project like Cinematic Titanic work out, so aim higher? I guess it's the difference between self funded and finding someone else to fund it.

The difference would be TV money.

DVDs are still profitable enough to keep being released (even with the rights being harder/more expensive), the show is being re-run on TV and Rifftrax is thriving.

I actually suspect this might have been the real reason for shuttering Cinematic Titanic.
