TRL returns to MTV

I think the last show aired in 2008.

Will it work? At least is better than some stupid reality show.

TRL, the MTV show formerly known as Total Request Live, went off the air in 2008. On November 16 of that year, to be exact; Beyoncé performed its swan song. In the nine years since, YouTube became the primary vehicle by which people watched music videos, the activity for which people tuned in to the show in the first place. Beyoncé moved on to releasing visual albums instead of straight-up videos. MTV backed away from videos altogether in order to fully embrace reality and scripted programming.

It’s been almost a decade since anyone watched TRL and since then everything about its primary foci—music videos, celebrity culture, TV consumption—has changed. So when the network announced in July that it was bringing back its afternoon music-video countdown show, the prevailing question was: “Why?”

I hate to admit it but I watched it in the mid to late 90's. I saw a commercial for it the other day. First I had heard it was making a return to TV.

Will it be a Teen Mom countdown instead?

No Jesse, no sale.



I have no idea how that guy got the job on TRL, aside from being irritatingly out of his gourd.

He would be too old for their demographic

Re: TRL returns to MTV

It is really resonating with the viewers and now it has been cut down to a 30 minute show.
