Actually I believe we're owned by Activision.

Well since you're asking that question I'm going to have to assume: not very.
I am the Illuminati.
It was created back when there was a pretty dead point in the BIONICLE community. There was nothing interesting going on and we were grasping at straws to find something to talk about. Co-currently we realized that our nesting grounds for discussion at the time: BZPower, had sort of fallen into a nasty pit where all people did was start fights and insult each other so our outlet for discussions had to be dispersed elsewhere.
Autopsy was originally created to "revive" some interest in the community. The shows initial premise was to bring to light something controversial that many fans were debating. For example, the first Autopsy was about iBionicle's Bring Back Bionicle campaign- something that many fans found hard to agree on. I'd take this topic, bring it to light so that the community was informed on it, then give my stance on it and let the people in the comments bash it out and talk about something other than dead fan projects. This was continued with the next few Autopsies as well with: The Monopoly of BZPower and Elitism and Overzealous fans- all topics that were controversial and debatable.
It was an attempt at getting people to keep talking about BIONICLE by combing through the remains of the community. An Autopsy, if you will.
You just apply for it, like every sponsor ever. It's pretty rare for sponsors to actually reach out for you, most places have sponsor programs that you can just sign up for. Obviously you have to reach a certain percentage, they'll reject your submission if you don't have the proper metrics.
Not until you learn to stop peeing on the carpet.
