The Comedy Channel to be more accurate. It merged with Ha! and became Comedy Central.

We got Comedy Central on our system the day they merged. I had read about Mystery Science Theater 3000 and watched it the first day. I was hooked for life.

Same here. I was in Napa then was forced to move for a new job in Eureka…which didn’t have Comedy Central for YEARS. That’s how I hid from the Mike/Joel War. Didn’t take long to catch up, though.
