Not as silly as it might seem.  I didn't know about Rifftrax until 2012,  I didn't know about Film Crew until 2013.  I wish someone had told me earlier.  On the other hand, I DID know about Timmy Big Hands!  :D

Does anyone know why the Comedy Central MST3K was cancelled?  I don't think I've ever heard.

16. the acronym "mst3k" stands for "majestic soaring tornado, 3 killed" :'(

17. the bots were infused with actual human souls. every night after filming, they would scream in terror of what their lives had become.

18. the writers' room always smelled faintly of rutabagas.

19. due to the frequent use of the "packers" chant, mike gained employment for one season as an official green bay cheerleader. he declined a second year, citing the discomfort at constantly having to shave his legs.

20. the real satellite of love remains in orbit to this day. the one "crashed" in the final episode was merely a prop built for the occasion.

Comedy Central claimed it didn't match with their programimg anymore. Basically, South Park was the new hot thing, and MST3K wasn't as profitable, edgy, or crude enough.

Rick Sloane really really really wanted Rifftrax involved with Hobgoblins 2, he would have loved for the DVD to have had a Rifftrax track commentary. Chris Blacketer and I were trying to get that organized but the guys weren't keen.

Yeah, ComCen re-organized their entire schedule and style... Major revamp. Axed MST3k, Dr Katz and stuff like that, and then put on things like Reno 911 and South Park. (there may have been a bit of overlap, but I don't think much.)  Also pissed away by ComCen was UCB and Trigger Happy TV... Politically Incorrect... And then they changed the Daily Show all around and Kilborn left.
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

I can understand their hesitation if it's very self aware, which I've heard it is (still haven't seen it yet ). But then they did do Sharknado, and are going to riff Sharknado 2.

Yeah if I recall at the time they just didn't want to repeat themselves on it.
