Default Mtv

MTV in its original conception was the greatest marketing scheme to hit the entertainment industry. An entire network of music videos ...genius. When it premiered it was only in certain areas, soon America cried out I WANT MY MTV.Cable companies responded and MTV became one of the fastest growning stations in history. A new generation was born...the MTV generation.

Soon tho the young station realized that they couldnt possibly fill all the time in the day with music videos. There is only so many times people want to see a Rod Stewart video. So different programs were born...Headbanger's Ball, YO! MTV Raps, amongst others. While these shows were great in their own ways Headbangers ball showcased Rock music while YO! MTV Raps introduced rap music to white America, they also encouraged MTV to experiment with other shows.Soon MTV began to stray away from the original concept of a music video network and became more of a pop culture station.

Over the next couple of years many new things were introduced, some good (Beavis and Butthead, MTV movie Awards, MTV Video Awards, Ben Stiller, Jon Stewart, etc...) and some bad(Pauly Shore, TRL, The Real World, Jesse Camp). Soon MTV had replaced most of their programming time with television shows rather than the music videos that made them famous. If you wanted to see your favorite videos you were out of luck unless they placed in the top 10 most requested videos on TRL,and if you aren't a fan of pop music you're pretty much screwed. Even if your video happened to place you were forced to watch the 30 second clip that MTV decided to show of it and most of the time with people speaking over it.

MTV became the breeding ground of the short atteniton span. An entire network dedicated to people who cannot sit still for 30 minutes. MTV must have realized it had become untrue to its original concept because they started a second channel MTV2.
MTV2 not an original concept but good nonetheless showed nothing but music videos.Now MTV2 has started the slow turn to the darkside they now show the making of the video specials,MTV Diary, amongst other things...


MTV has brought us many things which can be recognized as good
but an overwhelming number of things which can only be seen as horrible.Agree with me or Disagree but you must acknowledge that MTV has made an impact on American...if not the world Society

MTV has made an impact with some good stuff, but I wish they would have stayed true to their original concept. I think the only time they show videos anymore is afterhours when everyone is asleep. Most of the shows that they have don't even have anything to do with music and completely suck.


I say that Mike Judge and MTV should bring back Beavis and Butthead. That show kicked so much ass.

One show that they have right now that I am diggin, is Punk'd. That show is funny as hell. I just caught the first episode last night where they Punk'd Justin Timberlake, he looked like he was about to cry. That shit was funny as hell. I don't know how long the show will be around though, because people will start to recognize the pranksters (Dax and Al) and won't get Punk'd anymore.


MTV should get back to it's roots and at least have a timeblock during the day where they show music videos, and not just al the poppy manufactured mainstream bullshit.

Punk'd is pretty funny and they could keep it goin for a while all they have to do is bring in some new people to do the prank...but since its funny and enjoyable MTV will let it die

I hate MTV so much. Every time I turn it to the station they have all these bullshit music videos on. Well any music station sucks now. Music video's are just for shit pop bands.

I have noticed that lately. I'm starting to Like MM USA more and more. Too bad the Canadian Much Music only shows pop and rap.

The past couple days, i've turned on mtv a few times and almost every time i turn it on, Punk'd is on. They seem to playing it till we all get sick of it.
