Subject: 106 & PARK

Written By: the2001 on 10/01/15 at 12:10 pm

106 & Park is a spinoff of Viacom's TRL  that premiered in 2000 and lasted all the way until 2014.
Does anyone miss this show? It was like urban TRL.  When TRL ended in 2008  106 &Park was the only place
left that had a countdown/studio audience. As the show evolved in the early 2010s it turned into a pop countdown.
In fact most of the stage set pieces from TRL were moved over to 106 & park


Does anyone miss this show? I miss coming home and turning on BET and watching the top 10 videos of the day.
It is wild to think this show was still on the air even in 2013 and 2014.

The show had its swan song once Free and AJ left. I literally quit watching once they left.

I would have posted this thread in the 2000s section. The 2000s is how most know 106. The program becoming pop was the main reason it really lost its appeal. 106 was meant to air exclusively Hip Hop and R&B. That's what made the block unique and what it was. Once it was force into pop sounding music, it wasn't unique anymore. Just another pop music station.

I think the main reason why 106 went pop was because of TRL ended, then VIACOM the parent company of both shows
moved all sets and shifted program formats to 106. It kind of sucks tho regardless where do the Tinashes and Wales of the world
have now to promote their music other than  Facebook,youtube,itunes.

I loved Hip-Hop and R&B when I was younger, so 106 & Park was basically appointment viewing for me. For about two years or so, I went through a stretch where I watched TRL and 106 literally everyday, but I did begin to lose interest as I got older. I hadn't actually watched an episode since about 2003, so I certainly didn't know that it was still on the air until last year.

Yeah I was shocked when they get fired or released from their respective contracts or whatever happened.  I haven't watched 106 & Park since 2003 or 2004.
