Sorry but I have to ask this. Because people have started saying that MTV is dead, because it really does'nt stand for it's letters (MusicTeleVision) anymore, and rather find their music from the alternative sources.

It's because they think that reality TV and other shows besides massive amount of advertising has taken over the channel. It's also blamed of elitism - that they won't easily show new talents anymore unless they fit their style or somehow relate to stars that are already there.

As for me, I have'nt watched MTV in regular basis for years now so I don't even know what's going on in the channel. My source is the internet, the web radios and some websites. I have found great artists there, and I don't think it's a disadvantage at all that they're not on the MTV chart. They will be found in other ways for sure.

It's because I'm open to support the music of any genres and that's where MTV does'nt fit me.

Well, I'm not a big fan of MTV or TMF (The MusicFactory, some sort of MTV in Holland and other countries). I also think they don't show enough music. And when they do, it's always the same. TMF here is more of the urban, rap, R&B music and MTV more of the Rock-scene. It's okay to wake up with, but to just watch it all day... no thanks.

I like the reality shows, I always watch them, but it's not what they should show. There should be a MTV-chanel and a MTV-reality channel.. That'd be better I guess.

The End Of An Era: MTV’s “TRL”

A whole constellation of stars was on hand Sunday night in MTV’s Times Square studio to say good-bye in grand style to “TRL” as it aired its last show.

MTV’s “Total Request Live” aired an intense three-hour show Sunday night, complete with appearances and performances from some of its most-warmly welcomed guest stars over the years but, sadly, it was the last. After ten years of entertaining and the recent decline in ratings, the series came undone.

Many of the guest stars who paid tribute to the show last night highlighted the fact that “TRL” had helped them launch their careers. Beyonce opened the show with her new singles “If I Were A Boy” and “Single Ladies” – back in 1998, when TRL made its debut, Destiny’s Child was an up-and-coming group.

50 Cent called the show’s demise a “loss” since artists would not be able to reach fans through it to promote their music. Kid Rock also named it a “launching pad” for his own career.

Teen phenomena like Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson, the Backstreet Boys and ‘N Sync were heavily featured on “TRL,” which became a bridge of contact between them and fans. The Queen of Pop herself, Madonna, visited the studio to promote new music.

It wasn’t only music that was promoted on “TRL.” Movie stars also made appearances to announce and talk about new movies as did television personalities and sports stars.

The show’s original host was Carson Daly, who fulfilled his duties from the show’s inception until 2003. He was also present Sunday and called it a “sad moment.” Over the last years, the show has been hosted by a variety of VJs, including Vanessa Minnillo, Damien Fahey, Susie Castillo, Quddus, and Hilarie Burton.

Last night was not all pop and pink though, as TRL always supported a variety of music genres. Hip-hop stars Ludacris, Nelly and Snoop Dogg joined forces to perform their greatest “TRL” hits and 50 Cent performed “In Da Club” and his current hit “Get Up.”

The show’s closing down was first announced in September. The final episode, which aired Thursday, Nov. 13, featured the All-American Rejects tearing down the set and the cast and crew waving their good-byes to the camera.

MTV was especially known by this show at a time. Some people actually believe that MTV won't last. So to them in these times it's also the end of the era of MTV. These days internet is closely involved in sharing music, so maybe that's where the music fans probably move, if they have'nt already.
