  • I was there for the offical launch of the first video, I don't think Mtv has been music television since 1988! It is rediculous!

  • Because it started out as a channel for music videos....but now plays more (and produces more) "reality" shows than anything else.

  • They still show music videos but only when normal people are If you're up that early which is like 6 to 10 am I personally don't want to hear music at 6 in the morning and between 8 and 10 my kiddies are watching cartoons..

  • Must admit, I agree, I've wondered this for absolutely years. So you want to have a couple shows that aren't immediately music related, fine, but there is rarely any music on MTV.
