The show is now hosted by comedian Aries Spears. Patrice O'Neal hosted the first two seasons, while Jim Breuer hosted Season 3. Rachel Perry introduces the premise of each clip via voice-over.

Additional episodes[edit]

After Breuer left the program, the program went on hiatus save for a special Animals & Other Crap episode hosted by Aries Spears. This episode was not produced entirely like the previous episodes, instead including interviews with some people who found fame through viral videos. After taking a year off, a new Web Junk 20 special premiered on January 11, 2008, "Junk 40: Best of the New Crap"'.

The Kid from Brooklyn/Web Ranter of the Week[edit]

In the first two seasons, a regular feature of the show were rants from Mike Caracciolo, better known as "The Kid from Brooklyn", called "The Big Man Minute." This man posts regular videos on his website about any and all subjects. His clips were in the number four spot, now commonly filled by different rants every week. (Mr. Pregnant is the most common one so far, with rants about Thanksgiving and Christmas)
