It's a ridiculous question. All TV shows end. But its final cancellation
had nothing to do with a decline in quality (some individual opinions to
the contrary). MST3K never jumped the shark. Joel's brilliant concept
simply became too expensive for network TV. That's why it will never
return to TV. (For more info on why MST3K will never return to network
TV, visit http://www.mst3kinfo.com/mstfaq/syfy.html.)

As for it never becoming a "thing" -- I beg to differ. For proof, I only
need to point out that the show was cancelled 14 YEARS AGO and here we
are talking about it. Go to Twitter and search for "MST3K." You'll find
HUNDREDS of conversations about it daily. How many other TV shows that
have been off the air for 14 YEARS can you say THAT about?

The right people still get it.

Sampo (who never crossposts...doh!)
