Retrospect

In the 2000's  Mtv had a great presence with Generation Y. What are some of you're favorite memory's from this era of Mtv?
Did you hate it? Did you love it? Take this nostalgia trip back to the days of the 2000s MTV era.


REALITY MELTDOWN


In the 00's Mtv was the host to a vast array of reality programming.
Here is some incase you missed it.

TRL/ Live Programming


Despite a waning audience for Trl the show remained strong before being canceled in 2008.
In the mid 2000s  Trl got a new host due to Carson Daily leaving the show while this happened
much backlash from fans ensued . After the ending of Trl Mtv would try to use the same studio
for several other live programs but to no avail. Mtv got very aggressive during its choose or loose
campaign where it urged Gen Y to vote.

Leaving the decade as a milestone for mtv.

Wow, seeing the pictures of all the shows actually made me nostalgic for 00s MTV somehow.  MTV in the mid-00s (my high school years) was something I would occasionally watch when I was bored.  It was practically tailor made for lazy summer days or weekends.  Some of the shows were stupid, but some were surprisingly entertaining.  I never did watch The Hills or Laguna Beach, the two mainstays of the decade.  I do remember loving Pimp My Ride a lot though, laughing my ass off at Jackass, being both envious and incredulous at MTV Cribs, and being entertained by the concept of Made.

Yeah, MTV didn't air videos, but I had Fuse for that.  Fuse was a music channel that aired only videos, with a disproportionate focus on the rock genre, in the mid-00s and outright made fun of MTV for not airing videos.  It's main weakness was it latched a bit too much onto the Emo trend.  I have no idea what the channel is like now.

Yeah it definitely  was like a lazy day Network. Although before I got my first job I would always watch Trl when I got home from school. Yes the internet was big then but Trl was like this hub for whats new. There will still mega lines of people waiting outside of the Trl studios . Boiling Points was fun. I remember  the whole Jackass cast got their own shows.
Made always had an interesting show to watch. The made coaches were hilarious. Mtv in the 2000s atleast from 2003 on was more 80s focused with graphics and set designs I noticed. Im glad its making you feel nostalgic ................................... CUZ THERE IS MORE WHERE THAT CAME FROM LOL

I didn't watch MTV much at all after 1997 or so (maybe I watched a bit in 1998) I like the more offbeat stuff...Beavis and Butthead, obscure music video's they'd play late at night, I like the Rock n Jock softball games, the original headbangers ball, unplugged etc

I could care less about shows that flaunt wealth and promote exceedingly promiscuous behavior, but that became the benchmark of the network

I really enjoyed Viva La Bam though...for whatever reason something about the characters seemed endearing.

They focused more on Reality shows like Super Sweet 16, Newlyweds, Punk'd, etc. Due to the lower production costs. MTV ALWAYS portrayed itself as the "cutting edge of youth culture". The people who are watching now, may not stick around for the next few years. I am in no ways advocating MTV's content but also I see the buisness model they operate on. I accept that I am no longer the target demo for them. I stopped watching for good in 2007.

I stopped watching around 07 as well.  I started watching in the mid-late 90s when Real World and Road Rules were the only reality shows.  Then came Jackass (which was just about every teenaged guy's favorite show at the time) and its spin offs, Viva La Bam and Wildboyz (not as funny as Jackass, but still entertaining).  They started to lose me with all the shows targeting 13 year-old girls like The Hills, Super Sweet 16, Laguna Beach, etc.

At the dining hall that I used in college, they had two big screens which played MTVU.  Some of the stuff was good, like Muse, Mastodon, Del Tha Funky Homosapien, Serj Tankian and Snoop Dogg.  Unfortunately, I also got a front row seat to the decay of mainstrea hip-hop with Soulja Boy, Rich Boy, UNK, and Yung Joc.

The problem is that why watch MTV when you can watch ANY music video online. It's all about ratings, and music won't get them.


Yep. When people talk about MTV and it's current, well, lack of actual music, they often tend to overlook the fact that music videos didn't get totally relegated to only airing at 5 o'clock in the morning until the late 00's, which of course is after the rise of YouTube. The practice of watching music videos on television is completely dead these days, and really, it has been for closing in on a decade now.

I can say from firsthand experience though that MTV was still huge back when I was in junior high and high school in the late 90's/early 00's. Though I wasn't exactly a fan of their music, I still remember that episode of TRL when The Backstreet Boys were in studio and they had to completely shut down Times Square because of all the screaming teenage girls outside just hoping to catch a glimpse. Heck, they even expanded the countdown from 10 songs to 15 and added that "VJ for a Day" show sometime around then too. I think sometimes people forget just how big the whole Carson Daly/TRL thing was around 2000. MTV might not have been as culturally relevant as it was in, say 1985, but I don't know that it was necessarily all that far off either.

If VH1 still wasn't doing their pop culture/music related shows like 40 Greatest One Hit Wonders of the 90's and Behind the Music, I would've 100% ditched that channel a long time ago. If someone was holding a gun to my head and demanded that I choose between MTV and VH1, I'm definitely saying VH1.

MTV became crap well before the 2000s began. I viewed that channel for wussies and nicknamed it "Moronic Television". The newsgroup alt.mtv.sucks has been around since 1996, and I'll tell you the best thing to enjoy was to watch that newsgroup as the decade progressed, and since I didn't (and still don't) like 00s music in general, didn't care. At least there's MTV Hits now (which I would watch much more if it weren't for on demand videos) which is the spiritual continuation of MTV's golden years (1981-1992, the year that the book "I Want My MTV" stops.)

MTV became crap well before the 2000s began. I viewed that channel for wussies and nicknamed it "Moronic Television". The newsgroup alt.mtv.sucks has been around since 1996, and I'll tell you the best thing to enjoy was to watch that newsgroup as the decade progressed, and since I didn't (and still don't) like 00s music in general, didn't care.
