MTV: Music Television Comments (You must Login to Comment)

1 Reality television was born then it was all downhill from there. No more music shows at all along with their schedule being replaced with shows like Jersey Shore. Funny thing is I thought The Real World was a cool show that first season because reality tv wasn"t really a thing yet and I had never really seen anything like that before but little did anyone know that was the beginning of the end. It went from being the first true and best music network in cable tv history to a dumpster fire of "reality" shows. -- Submitted By: (HulkFan) on September 30, 2018, 9:38 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 For me it boned when they censored the word joint when they played You Dont Know How It Feels. That was incredibly lame. -- Submitted By: (TomPettyFan) on September 13, 2018, 2:10 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

4 After the explosion in popularity of Total Request Live. This was when MTV really decided to go with regular shows and not music videos as their main programming -- Submitted By: (John63btf) on October 28, 2014, 3:48 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 MTV boned the fish in ninety three when The Real World was shown one too many times. It became RTV right then and there. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 5:06 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I knew MTV was done when I saw shows like "My Sweet 16" about preppy princess bitches who want their perfect birthdays celebrated in obnoxious exaggerated fashions. I remember vaguely a clip of a show where some snobby little brat bitch was throwing a temper tantrum. Because her parents bought her a car that she didn't want. I mean, crying, red-faced, screaming type of tantrum. It was like "be fucking grateful you little twat, not everyone gets a brand new car of ANY brand just simply bought for them because everyone else has to work for it while you get handed everything through rich parents." Shows like "Pimp My Ride" where the idea of the show was kinda cool, I'll admit. It best belonged elsewhere than MTV. However, it died when it became more about "how many ridiculous things can we cram into a vehicle?" I mean how often would someone use a flat screen that flipped up from the inside of your trunk or EVERY door can flip vertically? Some shit like that. Seemed like the more things they cram into your re-made vehicle. The more it's prone to get crashed into if you happen to be that distracted. You mind as well just have asked them to simply give you new parts and give it a new nifty paint job, and call it good. And the one show I hate the most seeing is "16 and Pregnant" where it shows nothing but idiot girls with idiot guys getting babies together. Big. Fucking. Whoop. It's bad enough this shit happens in reality, but we have to project it on a TV screen for ALL to see. I don't care what troubles some girl goes through being the early mom and whatever they try cramming down the viewer's throat for sympathy points. YOU SHOULD'VE THOUGHT FIRST BEFORE HAVING KIDS YOU DUMB BITCH! MTV has long been dead. I don't miss it and I never have watched it besides the unfortunate pausing moments I had to take just to see the above on how corroded it's become. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on January 10, 2014, 5:41 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Miley Cyrus is untalented trailer-park trash. Also, why in the world do they still have video music awards if they never show music videos except for two hours really early in the morning? -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 27, 2013, 1:10 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
8 MTV wouldnt show MJ's videos originally, because they felt his style didn't fit the "rock" genre which they mainly catered to at the time. They did show black artist, such as Hendrix, The Busboys and John Butcher Axis, as those were considered "rock". MJ didn't want to accept this, so he played the race card. MTV relented and proceeded to increasingly suck throughout the remainder of its life. I stopped watching altogether in the mid-1980s, but I stopped enjoying it around 1984. I also credit MTV with being the main catalyst behind the epidemic of "Swelled Head Syndrome" that pretty much sabotaged popular music in the mid-1980s. Funny thing is their ratings declined during this period, but instead of seeing the truth for what it was (they alienated their original audience by showing Michael Jackson, Billy Ocean and other lame Top-40 crap videos), they decided to launch "programming" like "Remote Control"....another fish boning moment. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 11:55 am - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Of course when Music Television stops showing music it bones big time. I can't even stomach the garbage they show now. I flipped over and saw some of Jersey Show and just thought, who the heck cares? Total Crapola. Flip over the VH1 Classic. They show all the old videos and they have a cool show called That Metal Show. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on March 1, 2012, 2:02 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

11 MTV aka the shithole station: Proudly ruining teens lives by showing useless reality crap like 16 and Pregant, The Hill and Jersey Shore. Turning little girls into spoiled whores and little boys into obuxious drunks. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on April 17, 2011, 7:29 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

13 This channel used to show music videos, but soon they became hands down the worst channel on tv by showing nothing but incredibly stupid reality tv shows featuring untalented hacks, internet nobodies, washed up hacks, and wannabes. They also showcase incredibly lame and talentless (c)rap artists who never even lived in the "ghetto" and would scream like a little bitch if someone pulled out a butterknife in their faces. The rock bands are faggots who call themselves punk when real punks would kick the fuck out of them and lame ass "metal" bands who are pussies wearing makeup and tight pants and lack any sufficent amount of talent other than screaming in a microphone and playing the same 1 chord over and over for 4 minutes. The other "artists" are horrible pop singers who are either underage, have severe gender ambiguity, and lack any talent other than singing with machines and autotune to help them "sing". The worst part is that all of the garbage is targeted towards children, who grow up to be skanks and douchebags. The media watchdogs don't bother trying to advocate against this horrible station because they are too busy rallying against videogames. Even though videogames have been proven to have no violent impact on children. They fail to notice MTV is broadcasting soft-core pornography, violent images, and is teaching children that if they are not like the people on this channel, they are freaks and misfits. MTV is the devil in true living form. One can hope this channel is destroyed, for if not, it will continue to destroy humanity. All I can do is pray for the future of mankind. -- Submitted By: () on January 2, 2011, 6:21 pm - (5 votes) - Login to Vote
14 At least Viacom had the decency to remove the "Music Television" tagline from the logo this past year. If you look at it now, it's gone. I was born in the mid 80s, so I remember the different phases of MTV, from it's new wave/Michael Jackson phase to it's post hair-metal/grunge phase to it's post-grunge/bevis and butthead/Singled Out phase to screw the college aged audience, we're going for teens/TRL/bubble gum pop phase to screw music we're the one stop shop for trashy television phase. Haven't really watched a full show in probably five plus years on the channel. Last thing I watched was the tribute to Michael Jackson because surprisingly MTV played videos, had news reports and VJs that seemed into the music. What a concept! Too bad it only lasted two-three days. If I need a music video fix, I either check out Fuse or look up different videos online. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on November 9, 2010, 5:21 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

17 When the music videos stopped and it became all reality shows was when MTV boned big time. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on October 28, 2010, 8:46 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
18 Definitely boned when they pretty much stopped airing Music videos. In fact, they should pretty much rename the channel RTV. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on July 9, 2010, 12:06 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
19 There is just way too much to tell here. I believe the first non-music based show they put on was a game show called "Remote Control" and it just went downhill from there. This was also marathoned to death like MTV loves to do which ruins everything if you don't like the program that they shove down your throat. A critic just noticed that "Jersey Shore" isn't anything special, it's just that MTV keeps playing which makes an artifical buzz. In the 80's I liked being surprised by which video they would show next and weren't limited to one genre of music. Rock, rap, new wave, etc. It didn't matter, I just wanted to see a fun music video and not just focus on one type of music. -- Submitted By: (JamesO) on May 26, 2010, 12:59 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
20 I remember being into MTV from 1994-1999. There were still videos on the channel usually during the day and then it went to shows at night and on weekends. I loved most of the videos, I had to change the channel when rap came on because my dad didn't like it. The channel I would say began to suck in 1999 when TRL became the only video show and was over focused on Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys, N Sync, Christina Agulera, Eminem, and mostly anything I hated. Nowadays there are only a few groups from the past decade that I like mainly Green Day, Weezer, Franz Ferdinand, and Ben Folds. All other music I listen to usually has a 1997 or earlier copyright date. -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on May 14, 2010, 4:41 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
