MTV is on crack Who agrees?

I am of course speaking of the Mtv Movie Awards. Just another thing they use to boost ratings because ever since they decided to liter the channel with nothing but stupid dating and reality shows, people have stopped watching. Because it's not MUSIC TELEVISION anymore! It's CRAP TELEVISION.

  • I meant I agree. lol What a moron. lol

    Of course I was only like 13 or 14 when MTV first started. lol I loved videos back in the day. I guess I'm also one of the few people who does not think Sascha Baron Cohen is a genius! I think he's a complete moron and I'm sick of seeing his nakid a$$!!!

  • Even Vh1 is crap television now! What the hell happened to MUSIC TELEVISION! I think they should just change the names of Vh1 and Mtv to GARBAGE and DUMP television. Mtv being garbage and Vh1 being Dump because that's where washed up child celebrities wind up.

  • I'm old enough to have watched the first airing of MTV and was sadly disappointed in the programing MANY years ago. As you all have said, it ceased to be exclusivly "Music" TV a long time ago...

  • Do any of the 'video' channels even play video's anymore?

    Answer by Buffie95 at 11:43 PM on Jun. 2, 2009

  • I remember watching MTV when it was videos - granted, I was wee little, and my parents watched it back in the 80s... but anymore... I'd rather spend the little extra money I have on the internet - I can watch whatever videos I want whenever I want, and no stupid reality shows.

    MTV/VH1, etc....needs more metal. I'd shell out the money and get cable if MTV played bands I liked and showed concerts or live feeds from metal fests in Europe. But no... we get more reruns of the Hills, or some trainwreck reality show, no offense if you like that stuff.

    And if you like other music - They could make other channels that do the same things - lotsa vids, interviews, and concerts, for every genre of music. Oh, and documentaries. I think even one or two MUSIC focused reality shows (ie "making of" a concert or album) would be okay too.

    MTV used to be so awesome ... and so was VH1. :( Sorry for the rant.
