Has anyone turned on MTV lately? I was channel surfing and was shocked to see what it has turned into. No music videos. Just garbage.
I remember in 1981 when the station first started on tv it was great. WE were introduced to a lot of different groups that we would have probably never heard of if not for this station. Bring back the videos.

Yeah, I don't watch it much. I do like some of the shows on VH1, though. One of my favs is "I Love the 80"s". :D

I used to like pop up video on VH1. It's not on anymore.

Sounds like you haven't had cable for a while, Critbunny! That disappeared years ago! lol I don't think VH1 plays videos anymore either! lol

The only channel that plays music anymore is Fuse...but it has a bunch of text messages scrolling the bottom of the screen written by 14 year olds about all the scandals in thier lives. speechless

I stopped watching and allowing my kids to watch MTV when they got raunchy and allowed a girl to be raped during "The Real World" and tried coving it up. My boys and I have had long discussions about this. Listen to your music but NOT on MTV. Not while I pay the bills. If they were caught then I would cancel the cable. Well my youngest took me up on that and I awoke one day to find MTV on the tube. Proomptly at 9 am I canceled the cable. The good thing was he learned a valuable lesson but 3 months later they wanted me back as a customer so I got a sweet deal.

Well, not only has MTV gone 'reality' on us...but then they marketed MTV2- and it was suppoed to be all videos to make up for MTV (1) well, guess what station is now showing RERUNS of the REal World?
UGH....
I guess kids today don't NEED MTV, they have Ipods.

Check with your cable company on how to set Parental Controls. It works great - you can block out a certain channel or certain ratings etc. :heartssmile:
