    Okay, correct me if I'm wrong but, it's Mtv supposed to be "Music" television?

    When the channel first came out I remember everyone rushing home to see the video's of their favorite groups. It was supposed to be music videos 24hr a day. Well I don't think they should even be allowed to call themself music television any more.

    Yesterday I was looking through the program guide, and noticed that out of a 24hr period, they only had maybe 4hrs of music videos. To top it off the majority of the videos were scheduled between 1am and 4am. What kid is up at 3am in the morning?

    I can't even remember the last time I saw a FULL music video on "Mtv". It's all reality base programming. You have Cribs, The Real World, Road Rules, Jackass, Viva la Bam, Newlyweds, Pimp My Ride, Wild Boys, Real World vs Road Rules, Room Raiders, Date My Mom, True Life, Made.

    Were are the FREEKING MUSIC VIDEOS?! Were is the music television, because it sure isn't on Mtv.

    It became an anything goes circus that revolves around the entertainment industry.

    If you want videos, see their other station Mtv 2

    I agree with you. MTV has gone to hell. I don't even know what 1/2 of the shows you listed are. Who watches them? WTF is the difference between Real World and Road Rules? I don't know what Viva la Bam is. There aren't any good videos anymore. MTV shouldn't call it self music television at all. Music isn't really as good as it used to be. Rap is the worst it's ever been. There are virtually no good rock bands around like Rage Against the Machine or the Smashing Pumpkins. Pop is bad. THe list goes on and on.

    MTV stopped showing videos, then VH1 touted itself as the video channel. Then they stopped showing videos, and MTV2 was the video channel.



    I think the message is that videos alone are not profitable enough programming.

    Truthfully no one cares anymore. Music today is shareholder - not artist - driven and loyalty on a consumer level is near zero. I haven't listened to regular FM in ages, although I am hooked on a few XM channels at the moment. I believe MTV has totally ruined music. No wonder people don't want to pay for it anymore.

    Actually, MTV2 is starting to show non-music video programming, so they're launching (launched?) MTV3, which promises to be all videos.

    MTV does pretty much suck now except for Viva La Bam and the occasional Jackass which is on in the weeeeeee hours of the morning. The thing i dont get is where the hell they find all these self centered and vain people for their stupid dating shows like Date my mom or Next. More proof that my generation sucks.
