Midnight Monster Hop is a horror host television show that first aired in 2006 on HSTV in Uniontown, Pennsylvania.

In February 2008, the show began airing on WPXI/RTN Pittsburgh, and as of May 23, 2009 became available nationwide on select Retro Television Network affiliates, showing cult and B horror films with introductions, jokes, and skits inserted between movie segments. The Show was pulled off Retro Television by Ricky, after a contract dispute, so it lost its national reach, tho many local RTV affiliates still run MMH instead of other shows that RTV picked up. A good example was WXYZ-TV's RTV subchannel, which aired it due to WMYD-TV being the originating station of Wolfman Mac's Chiller Drive-In, which RTV picked up for national broadcast.

Midnight Monster Hop may still be seen on many independent stations around the country.

  • Gravely MacCabre (Ricky Dick) - Show Host
