Why on the slide of Sweet 16 did they show a Lexus concept car that has not even entered production?

I like the concept of room raiders. Picking a date on how they lived, but then again knowing how scripted MTV "reality" shows are how much of what they found was a set up and did they even meet the people before they picked them as a date.

One show of theirs that did make me want to go on a rage induced kill spree was my super sweet 16. When I first saw it I was out of work and just seeing the kids cry that they didnt get the car with the right interior or they could only spend $500k just grated me to no end.

I guess I'm old... I remember when the M = Music, not mediocre (at best).

Daves not here: I guess I'm old... I remember when the M = Music, not mediocre (at best).


There's no money in music anymore. Especially when music companies and artists ask for royalties (they didn't back in the 80's) and any kid with a smart phone or a laptop can watch any video he wants at anytime on youtube. If young people are your target market how would a pre-programmed playlist of videos compete with that?

True Life is often very good.  Seems like MTV keeps their hands off the production of that one.  I mean, its been on for like 10 years or so, and pretty much hasn't changed.  Its done in true documentary fashion, and adheres to the ethics of making documentaries.

While I think MTV's current programming is mostly crap, I agree.  Why would anyone want to try to have an all music channel in this day and age?  You wouldn't last a month.
 
Even if they were daring and played new, up-and-coming stuff and not crappy pop music... again, no one would watch.  Sure, *maybe* someone would put it on in the background at a party.  But since most younger people are savvy enough to have at least one device on their TV that gets YouTube... "Music Television" is a dead concept.

Some of the True Lifes are good.
 
I don't really watch the Real World any more, but early Real World was great.
 
I still watch the Challenges religiously :-)

Is it too much to ask for to bring back Remote Control? Not some reworked version. I want Ken Ober's reanimated corpse going back and forth with a geriatric Colin Quinn. I know Adam Sandler has time on his hands. Get your shiat together MTV
