I'm of the opinion that MST3K should have been liked Doctor Who and
just had a revolving cast. The concept just seems too good to not keep
going and the types of characters (a host, an evil scientist, her
goons, the bots) seem flexible enough to cast a different actors into.

There would of course be downsides. For instance there are only so
many and movies out there and even fewer that MST3K could show and
would suit the format. However, taking into account they have the
entire history of cinema to work with it would be quite a while before
they ran out. Plus, time wouldn't just stand still and new bad movies
would continue being made. Also, as a last resort they could always
use the same movie twice. I'm sure a Manos riffing from 2013 with an
all new cast would be quite different from the original.

Another downside could be that some replacements could be weak and
thus entire years of the show could be lame. However, that's something
every continuous series has to face.
