[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. Charlie Murphy (VIII) and Donnell Rawlings took over the hosting duties.
- Charlie Murphy (VIII) first showed the infamous Rick James sketch to his brother Eddie Murphy before audience tapings. Eddie enjoyed the sketch so much that the two watched it again.
