[show]Dave Chappelle left the show abruptly during filming of the third season. He later stated in interviews that he never intended to make a third season but he felt pressured by Comedy Central and his co-workers to continue. Comedy Central pulled the show from its 2005 schedule and decided to shelve the completed sketches in hopes that Chappelle would return to finish the season. Chappelle stated in interviews that if Comedy Central aired the episodes he would definitely not return to the show. After negotiations with Chappelle stalled, Comedy Central decided to repackage some of the completed sketches and air them in 2006. Charles Q. Murphy and Donnell Rawlings took over the hosting duties.
- The Beastie Boys taped a performance of their 1986 song "The New Style" for the third season. But the segment did not air.
- During a stand-up performance in Sacramento, CA, Chappelle ended it abruptly after berating the audience for repeating the show's catchphrases and having difficulties with his career.
