The Saturday Night Troll Show was a True Capitalist Radio spinoff show hosted by Ghost that, as the name implies, was purely focused on trolling. Unlike regular broadcasts, Ghost only broadcasted the Saturday Night Troll Show on Saturdays. As of November 2017, the Saturday Night Troll Show is on indefinite hold, unlikely to ever return.
BackgroundGhost had plans about cancelling Radio Graffiti on his show entirely as early as 2012, but he never actually started bringing these plans into fruition until Capitalist Episode 459 when he decided to hold a contest in the form of autograph sales about the fate of Radio Graffiti. The rules of the contest were that if Mr. Fortune Cookie autographs sold more, Radio Graffiti would stay, while it would be removed if Mr. Optimism autographs sold more. Ultimately, Mr. Optimism was victorious and the end of Radio Graffiti was made official.However, the decision about removing Radio Graffiti sparked outrage from the community and allegations began to rise that the whole competition had been rigged from the start in an attempt to milk more money from trolls desperately attempting to keep Radio Graffiti on the show. It was also later alleged that the Arab Prince had interfered by purchasing 100 Mr. Optimism autographs at the last minute. In response to these allegations as well as the high sales of Mr. Fortune Cookie autographs, Ghost decided to make a compromise between trolls and serious callers by leaving only 10-15 minutes for Radio Graffiti on regular broadcasts and creating a separate weekend broadcast completely dedicated to trolling. Many trolls accepted the compromise, though as the show has gone on some have complained about Ghost wasting too much time before getting to shoutouts and Radio Graffiti.
While the move seems to have placated Serious Callers while minimizing the anger of the trolls, it has done little to (as Ghost originally intended) reduce his own stress from dealing with the trolls. Ghost has continued to rage at Twitter and Gab shoutouts and at the reduced Radio Graffiti during regular episodes, and even harder at the concentrated trolling on the Saturday show. Ultimately, cans.wav counts for the episodes after the removal of Radio Graffiti are comparable to those from before.
Show's End and Future
The final episode of the Saturday Night Troll Show aired on May 6th, 2017, with Ghost putting both True Capitalist Radio and the Saturday Night Troll Show on indefinite hold. While True Capitalist Radio returned on October 31st, 2017, little is known of the future of the Troll Show, with Ghost contemplating scrapping it all together and creating some form of gaming livestream or Let's Play to replace it.
