    I miss old MTV.

    Reading the posts about cancelled shows and such. I sure miss MTV when they played videos all the time. I don't even stop to look at it now. I liked Headbangers Ball and YO MTV Raps. Do they even show any videos anymore?


    There can be only one.

    The M needs to be replaced with an R for reality.

    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    If you get MTV Jams and the "other MTV channels they do. Much better then just regular MTV almost all of the time.

    What? Your not a fan of My Big Redneck Wedding or whatever? I do kind of hate how it is like oh, your watching a country music channel, you must like redneck stuff.

    MTV also bought VH1 and began immediately screwing with their format as well.

    Re: I miss old MTV.

    We were talking about this the other day. The ONLY music on MTV anymore is TRL and even that only plays snippets of videos. All the music channels are going the Reality TV way, which is pretty sad...

    MtV = Pop Culture Reality TV
    VH1 = Washed Up Reality
    CMT = Country Reality TV

    Re: I miss old MTV.

    I miss when TRL showed more than 15 seconds of a video. Yesterday I stumbled upon a show on MTV that was actually showing full-length music videos and I was shocked! Granted, there were people "analyzing" whether the video made sense or if it was 'cheap' and whatnot, but they showed full videos. I watched 2 videos and changed the channel though so I can't even tell you what the name of the show was.

    But yeah...I miss the old MTV. I was/am a fan of the Real World, Road Rules, and the Challenges (since 2 of the 3 have been on MTV almost since it was born) but everything else is just.....blah. Tila, Laguna, the Hills, whatever other crap they put on....sucks.

    Maybe MTV should buy TLC, Lifetime, and WE and screw them over. Then I wouldn't have to worry about sharing the TV with my lady.

    I saw him on VH1 hosting their top 10 (or 20, I didn't pay attention) video show. He had that "What the heck am I doing here" look.

    Re: I miss old MTV.

    Although it wasn't videos MTV use to have a show called Sandblast, kind of an American Gladiers on the beach. I loved that show.

    But yeah, no videos on CMT is soon approaching. Good thing Direct TV has Satalitte Radio.

    Don't know if any of you got The Tube...it was a great all-music video station (60's to the present) broadcast on a number of secondary HD channels (mostly Raycom and Tribune stations) and on satellite/cable. Great station...it too died after little more than a year. Apparently, nobody is really interested in an all-music network...

    I blame Adam Sandler. If Remote Control had failed, maybe they would still be doing music.
