Comedy Central is an American cable TV station that was started
by the infamous intimate Five Jewish Bankers of indeterminate ethnicity that could be any race, creed, color, or bank account one of them could be Bill Cosby fuck that goddamn sometime in the late 20th Century. It started out as a small station, showing funny clips meant for 'common people' and achieved success by running mediocre shows like Reno 911, Mind of Mencia, and comedy roasts, while derailing the runaway success of its greatest show, Chappelle's Show because Dave Chappelle, its creator, didn't want to be as racist as his bosses anymore.
Comedy Central was launched on April Fool's Day of 1991 when HBO (owned by Time Warner) decided to merge its unpopular comedy channel with MTV's program, HA! By working together, they attempted to create an entire channel of unpopular
shit shows. Comedy Central was first known as CTV, short for "Comedy Television." Canadian audiences complained because they had a network named "CTV" as well, short for "Canadian Television." What the Canadians failed to realize was that no one in America cared anything about what went on outside its borders, especially Canadian television programming. As a result, CTV was forced to change its name and become "Comedy Central". The channel was sold to Disney in 1995. It was later sold to Viacom, which is the reason Dave Chappelle exiled himself to Africa after quitting his show in 2005.
Since Comedy Central had (and still has) no original ideas of their own, they picked up cult favorite Mystery Science Theater 3000, which was never meant to be considered a quality show by any networks in existence. Since the program already had a huge following, and the character Crow T. Robot never ran out witty one-liners, it was inevitable that more people would eventually tune in. Joel Hogdson, its host and creator, made a fatal career move and left MST3K at Comedy Central in its heyday, and his show went with another host, fell into overdrive fail, then death.
Over the years of trial and error, Comedy Central has finally become a staple in American television programming. But as with MST3K, Dave Chappelle was to repeat the same career error in 2005 with his Chappelle Show, leaving industry insiders wondering what kind of blueblooded, billionaire-blowing Nazi factory Comedy Central was all about.
Since Comedy Central does not pay their talent well, if at all, most shows are short lived; the only exception is South Park, because with Trey Parker and Matt Stone's runaway success,
(producing effective satires that bashed the reputations of Tom Cruise, Scientology, and other groups or people they feel threaten free speech or human rights), the creators vow to destroy Comedy Central with one episode at another media outlet or even at Comedy Central if they notice one hint or suggestion that they would be let go, censored, or fired. this brings critical and commercial acclaim to Viacom/Comedy Central.
