Was I the only one to really like this show? I think it was on sci-fi? Robot demolition derby. All I know is it just disappeared and I haven't heard a word about it since. Just came up in conversation at work,thought I would post.

It was on comedy central and I think they canceled it after the 2nd or 3rd season because the guys that went on to do Mythbusters just kept completely dominating everyone else.

Yup, Robot Wars. It was hosted by one of the guys(forget his character's name) that was on Red Dwarf.

There was an underwater version also. (It didn't last long. Maybe on PBS?)

The team's ROV's had to do a task before this HUGE ROV (think oil rig maintenance) came in and ripped them to shreds. The best parts were the little subs running and being caught by this huge claw.

I remember all the random ass hosts this show had, even the Sklar brothers at one point.
