Kartozia explained the decision to close the station by saying that MTV Russia had ceased to be "the music channel that we all once loved."

Now if only the rest of world would just follow suit.

MTV's failure of a business model in having neither Music nor scripted Television shows on their channel was only offset by the fact Anderson Cooper worked for free. The reaper's come for the harvest now.

Yeah, here it is not MTv, it is TMV, or "Teen Mom Vision"

So...Kurt Loder is automatically Vice President and Sarah Palin gets sent to a gulag?

MTV a music channel??

that's a good one.

MTV's only purpose in life is to separate the teenie/twenty-something from their cash.

nothing more.

Maybe they just got tired of waiting for a Cosmonaut on the moon.

there is direct correlation between MTV and the stupidification of the world.
 
2012-12-11 11:20:15 AM  
Wait....

Is Kurt Loder still on MTV???

My God, he must be in his mid 70s by now.

I'll bet Tabitha Soren is still hot, though....

I like MTV. Teen Mom, Jersey Shore, great programming.

The only music channel I thought was reliable for music was VH1 Classics and it is currently showing an episode of Married With Children.

MTV Russia's ratings have dropped off because of the growing popularity of listening to music online, he said, adding that the channel "is no longer effective." 

I know, dudeski. They no longer play videos!
