The first season ran from July 6, 2005 to September 28, 2005. The show is among Comedy Central's lineup. The first season of Mind of Mencia was released on DVD on March 21, 2006 to coincide with the premiere of the second season on March 22, 2006. The format is similar to Chappelle's Show, but it has few live sketches and some extended stand-ups. In a recent Wall Street Journal article, Mencia says he initially resisted requests by his network to take a deal to do a stand-up comedy album on the Comedy Central label, but will now likely appear on one.
"It was stupid of me not to take it, but I knew I could do a little better releasing it myself or with a company that would give me a bigger piece of the pie," he said. He also said he is starting a concert tour backed by the TV network.
The third season of Mind of Mencia began airing on April 1, 2007 at 10:00 pm.
- Carlos' brother Joseph Mencia (who is not a professional actor) appears in many episodes.
- In the first season, Joseph appeared in all episodes except for four: episode numbers 101, and 105-107. Also, Joseph has appeared in the first four episodes of season two.
- Carlos' wife Amy has also appeared in several episodes. One sketch where Carlos is denigrating white women ends with Amy, who herself is white, dragging him off-camera.
- Steve "Daddy" Trevino, a past writer for Mind of Mencia, does several "dirty works" tasks in several skits featured in season one. For example, he was the regular "gas attendant" and did the naked yoga.
- Near the end of the opening credits in season one, Carlos is reading a newspaper that reads "TV Host Breaks Out", In season two, the newspaper that he reads says "Season 2.", In season three the newspaper reads "Season 3 (He's Legal)."
- Some episodes feature a dwarf named Brad Williams. Brad is also Mencia's opening act when he performs.
- Some episodes also feature Bobby Lee.
- Last Comic Standing winner Josh Blue got his start on the show as a trophy boy for the "Dee Dee Dee Awards".
- Some episodes guest star sports stars/athletes and musical guests. Examples are skating legend Tony Hawk (doing a parody skit of himself), hip-hop icon Method Man (assisting Mencia in explaining the N-word), and WWE Superstar Edge (as color commentator for the Religious Royal Rumble).
- The show also features other media celebrities such as Pablo Francisco, Gene Simmons, Dave Attell, Robin Williams, Jamie Kennedy and the late Peter Boyle.
- The ghost of Johnnie Cochran makes a few guest appearances on Mind of Mencia in the sketch Judge Carlos in both seasons 1 and 2.
- 'Judge Carlos', 'Carlosauros Rex', 'Out The Beaner' and 'Why The F@#% Is This News?' were the only sketches that were ever done more than once on the show.
