PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

As of Tuesday, there is something new on channel 3.2.

Say hello to COMET TV, "a new television channel dedicated to sci-fi entertainment offering popular favorites, cult classics, and undiscovered gems, every day."

"We have entered into a new contract with Comet TV," Ed Munson, the general manager of KPHO and KTVK said. "We found that our audience was not as large for the repeated newscasts as it had been in previous years." 

Shows on COMET include "DrangonflyTV," an Emmy Award-winning series in which "kids discover the wonders of science by rolling up their sleeves and participating," as well as "Get Wild," "Johnny Sokko and His Flying Robot," "Men Into Space," cult classic "Mystery Science Theater 3000," "Poltergeist: The Legacy," "Stargate SG-1," "Think Big" and "Wild World."

And then, there are the movies -- tons of 'em!
