The Day The Music Television Died

11/16/2008 3:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Since "Total Request Live" will officially be defunct after tonight's final episode, MTV should consider changing its name to "Real World/Road Rules Challenge Reruns TV."

Just a suggestion.

MTV and VH1 veered off course years ago. How does marathons of America's Next Top Model end up on these channels?
I do like some of the reality shows but I don't like having them forced down my throat. Please music television come back to the light.

MTV has been garbage for years, way before TRL. Problem is, kids these days are idiots and will think anything on TV is cool. How the hell do you explain the bassist, THE BASSIST, of a crappy band like Fallout Boy to get on TV as much as he does.

Why doesn't the music video still have the same appeal as it once did? I don't mean the "performance videos" where what is shown is just the band or artist playing. I mean the ones where the video explains the songs lyrics through acting them out.

MTV Sucks! TRL Sucks unless you are a 15 year old mid western teenage girl. MTV Video Music Awards are a joke. Video killed the radio star...then it killed itself and left us with crap.

MTV at one time was on the cutting edge, a poineer back in the day! What teenager or even 20-something's didn't watch MTV? But then at some point MTV completely lost focus and abandoned it's roots, eventually deteriorating into just another desperate-for-ratings reality channel that it is today. No more innovation, no more creativity - that left MTV years ago. Sad.

Still during the 90's i was watching that channel. But after that, nothing. The 80s was their best decade i guess.

if video killed the radio star it must of been some sort of prediction because internet killed the mtv star...

and to make myself sound like i am remembering my growing up mtv phase, then fine...i remember when i used to come home from school to watch music videos. there are alot of good videos but you can never watch them on tv you have to find them on the internet!

So true--the music's been dying for a long time now on mtv. Remember the goold 'ole days when it was one music video after another? And not the raunchy crap on now?

Lessons Learned?
