Why did MTV stop playing videos?

Oct 13, 2000
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Nothing, anymore

Cons:Too many shows, not enough videos, plays the same videos day after day, plays the same kind of music day after day, etc, etc

I have watched MTV for the past 10-11 years and year after year the video airtime decreases and decreases. Also, the diversity decreases as well. They sold out and became a network for sitcoms!

Back in the day there was Headbangers Ball, Alternative Nation and Yo!MTV Raps. It was a good mix, considering everyone that watched MTV had different music tastes. Now, the only shows I have caught playing music is TRL, which plays 10 videos and MTV Jams, which probably plays about the same.

Not only am I disgusted at this, but I am disgusted that they only play "Popular" music. Yes, I am a fan of teeny-bop music such as N'Sync and 98 degrees, but is that all I listen to? Not at all. They occasionally play "Rock" but only pop rock.

MTV forgot about other age groups and now cater exclusively to the ages of 16 and under. Not to mention, that a lot of the shows and music (if any) are a little too mature for their target audience. Maybe, I'm getting old or maybe I'm the only one with this opinion. All I have to say is MTV was great 10 years ago and I don't know what happened. America is getting more and more culturally diverse by the second but MTV is becoming more biased by the second.
