If all you ever show are staged "reality" shows about rich fucks in California or a program with liquored up good looking, shallow early 2o-somethings that get drunk, cry, fight, and fuck ...... you're not going to have time to show music.
And guess what? The numbers show it. Don't believe me, read this from an article written on the AP .... "at its peak in 1999, "TRL" had 757,000 viewers a day, with 346,000 of them aged 12 to 17, according to Nielsen Media Research. So far this year, the show — now seen at 3:30 p.m. ET — averages 351,000 viewers a day, Nielsen said. The 12-to-17-year-old audience is only 113,000, half what it was only two years ago."
So here's what I say to this ...... FUCK YOU MTV. You've made an entire generation of young people today feel too fat, too poor, too inadequate. You've created this illusion that all young people want to do is get drunk, fuck, fight, and act as shallow as Paris Hilton or her ilk. You are finally reaping what you sow!! This is so sweet and savory!!
By the way ... this is what MTV should be showing (those ungrateful bastards!!!) ....
What Cure Song Are You?
