MTV Ditches the Music

MTVlogo100.jpg

After 29 years, MTV has finally slashed the "Music Television" from its name. The change was long overdue, considering that by 2008, the network was only playing three hours of music videos per day, a number that plunged even further once Total Request Live went off the air. MTV also altered their logo slightly (at left) while their sister network, VH1, is sticking by its slogan "Very Humiliating." [THR]

    Wait, so they're just going to call themselves "V" now?
    Because that didn't work out too well for those lizard folk.

  • SunnydaZe says:

    So, what does the "M" stand for now????
    Mundane?
    Musty?
    Misogynistic?
    Mutherf**ker?
    Moron?
    Oh, wait, I know>>
    MONEY.

    Let's face the facts, folks...
    If you have a negative comment about this change it's mean you're old.
    (Let's hope they have Zac Efron and The Bone-us Brothers revive the "I Want My MTv!" campaign.)

  • SunnydaZe says:

    Or maybe I am a twelve year old who has watched all those cool 80s promos and music videos on youtube so I think the new MTV sucks...
    (I gave myself away by using "cool" and "sucks" didn't I? Well, at least I didn't say "gag me with a spoon"....)

  • Benny says:

    Mtv will never be the same as it was in the 1980's. I really got sick of MTV in the early 90's when they strayed away from the music, started that stupid "Real World" and got way too political. It's a shame that such a ground breaking network sold out......

    "Reality killed the video star"

    Mtv killed raidio popularity, Right?
    I thought that was what they were for!
    You expect them to be able to continue to keep paying good money to transmit all this crap you can get on the internet for free?
    Sorry my Bretheren, Times move on & there's money to be made. GO!! Mtv!
    DON'T COME BACK!!!!

  • UncleIgmar says:

    The M in MTV has stood for Moron (unofficially) for years because you would basically have to be a moron to watch anything that comes from there - even The Real World.

  • Snooki killed the video star.

  • Old No.7 says:

    They did it all for the Snooki.

  • The Winchester says:

    They listened to a new strategy: Let the Snooki win.

  • Old No.7 says:

    That would only work on the Sci-Fi channel.
