TRL Canceled -- For Real This Time!

TRL Canceled -- For Real This Time!

Total Request Live, better known as TRL, has been officially canceled after ten years. (This was a rumor back in Feburary, but it’s a done deal now.)

TRL executive producer Dave Sirulnick said that show, which is taped in Times Square, will take its final bow in a two-hour special on a Saturday afternoon in November. He added that show isn’t “ending for good” but needs a “break.”

Originally hosted by Carson Daly, the music video countdown show premiered music videos and helped to launch the careers of Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, ‘NSync and other teen pop acts.

Where will artists premiere their music videos now? Online? FNMTV?

R.I.P. T.R.L. (1998 – 2008)

    i cant believe it took this long to cancel it. it stopped being good five maybe six years ago and that wa when MTV was slightly still showing music videos. now they can fill another time slot with the lateest re-rerun of the Hills (hooray) another fine piece of trainwrecked crap.

  • andrea

    about time! its kind of hard to have a trl when there are no videos to show :-/ mtv sucks and is nothing what it was meant to be. all they show during that show is a bunch of lil kids screaming. the vma’s was the worst that i ever viewed. what happened to the days of “real” music? i can still remember when nirvana played on stage live. wtf how do you go from that to what it is now? mtv is reality tv..well scripted reality tv. i feel sorry for the youth having to view that garbage.

  • lil

    trl never show full vids anymore. i’d rather keep trl with full videos.
    and just cancel all the other crap reality shows on a music channel.

  • Dana

    thats sooo sadd… ever since i can remember trl was around and i was hoping to be part of the audience just ONCE but that obviously isnt gonna happen anymore =(

  • Hayley

  • stephanie

    good it was much better with crason, I stopped watching it a lot after he left. When they actually played the whole music videos when TRL first came on. I think i’ll stick with FNMTV. Love it.

  • will

    well..to be honest, TRL hasnt been the same since Carson Daly left…and does MTV notice that they have to change their name, since, well…theres nothing really music about it anymore..

  • i agree with #29

    RIP TRL?
    RIP MTV!
    I have no idea why they still call themselves music television when it’s all “reality” shows and dating show sh*t.
    They hardly ever play videos and even TRL usually just played pieces of them.
    They still hold the video music awards which they should stop as well, seeing it’s obvious MTV couldn’t care less about videos.. they’re never on.

  • girlleader1

    NOOOOOOOOOOO

  • sammie

    Thank God! They only showed 15 seconds worth of videos.

  • sammie

    o w.e….i’ll survive…we have FNMTV though!!…so YAY!!!

  • bells.

    WOW o_o

  • M

    MTV needs to relaunch itself as something other then MTV. It’s been neglecting music for a long time now and only pays attention to videos when it wants to throw an award show and get lots of celebs there for press and advertising cash.

  • gina

    Wow. I knew it had changed over the years, and I didn’t really watch TRL much anymore, but to have it gone for good is a sad day.

  • @lfr3do

  • http://yahoo.com zanessaluv4ever

    good, this show sucks now.

  • http://myspace.com/sofia_jb sofia

    WOWW!

  • tor

    really, where are all these artists going to put their music videos where the public will actually see them full on.

    i know a lot of people watch mtv, as well as trl .. so this network can definitely influence the music we listen to. what is everyone going to resort to now? my guess is the internet.

    than again, mtv is no longer going by it’s name “music tv”, with all this reality junk they’ve decided to air which sucks. where is the music? false advertising much.

  • Ava

    MTV is all reality now. I remember what it was like back in the day; when the channel consisted of actual music video’s 24/7. Music is dead, and that is one of the main reasons this show when down the tubes. Let’s just start calling it RTV, because it’s nothing but Reality TV.

  • Sarah!

    ahh that totally sucks:(

  • anonymous

    yay!

  • http://aol.com amy

    might as well just say the world is coming to an end.

    TRL put the music in MTV, now MTV is a waste.
