* {{Mondegreen}}: No, the first case isn't actually named "Katy Swan", though the voiceover makes it sounds like it is.

A Canadian show aired by [=MuchMusic=] (and recently picked up by Fuse in 2011; they actually ''used'' to be the official American version of said channel way back when), where 5 different comedians [[{{MST}} riff]] over 5 different music videos. Of course, because these are [[RuleOfFunny comedians]] we're dealing with, this will often involve trying to make a mockery out of what happens in the video, and [[AcceptableTargets trying to find a real-life occurrence to connect it to]].

Given the title of the show and its structure, the show did use some justice system-based motifs and imagery, including referring to the panelists as the jury and songs as cases, the introduction to a case featuring what they were "accused" of (followed by a humorous "sentencing" at the conclusion of the case), and more, especially in the earlier seasons. The fifth season dropped most of the courtroom motifs from the show in favor of a more futuristic look, but the comedic aspects remained.

The newest season, which premiered in July 2014, completely changed the format of the show: Aisha Alfa and Paul Lemieux are now the permanent jury, and the show relies more on running [[CutawayGag cutaway gags]] and recurring segments (making it feel more like ''[[Series/{{Tosh0}} Tosh.0]]'') rather than rapid-fire joking around. It only lasted 4 episodes before Much pulled the plug on the show completely as a part of [[http://www.billboard.com/biz/articles/news/tv-film/6157478/muchmusic-canadas-first-music-video-channel-lays-off-91-cancel major layoffs]] (which also saw the cancellation of Much's remaining original music programs, and a hiatus for its weekly countdown).
