    Someone took the liberty of recording the first two hours of MTV and uploading it to YouTube.I've thoroughly enjoyed watching it! Of course, the display quality isn't what we've grown used to and there's an occasional glitch in the recording. This was early VHS.It's everything, old commercials, and bands I've long forgotten or never even remembered.First five videos: “Video Killed the Radio Star” by The Buggles. “You Better Run" by Pat Benatar. “She Won't Dance With Me" by Rod Stewart. “You Better You Bet" by The Who. "Little Suzi's on the Up" by Ph.DFirst four commercials: MTV (of course) The...

    As part of MTV’s ongoing celebration of their 40th anniversary, the network has revealed its new-look Moon Person trophy. Artist Kehinde Wiley — whose presidential portrait of Barack Obama resides in the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery — is the creator of this iconic statuette that the winners will receive at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. Ahead of the September 12th award show, Rolling Stone has the exclusive first look at the new Moon Person trophy: “Kehinde Wiley’s Moon Person sculpture represents inclusivity and diversity marked by the historical, environmental and nature relevance of the botanicals,” MTV said of the...

    MTV turns 40 this Sunday. Did any adult child not named Lizzie Borden ever disappoint the parents more than the three-letter network? “We’re the reason you have no attention span,” original VJ Mark Goodman quips in VJ: The Unplugged Adventures of MTV’s First Wave. “And you can pin reality TV on us too. You’re welcome.” Yet, those first years were glorious. From “Video Killed the Radio Star” as its prophetic opening to the evangelistic “I Want My MTV” crusade to spread the good news upon recalcitrant local cable companies to its giveaways of a little pink house, a lost weekend...

    “The most recent fad to catch on with kids in our big cities and metropolitan areas is rapping,” the Blondie singer explained to the audience on the network variety show “Solid Gold,” in 1981. After mentioning some of the genre’s rising stars from the Bronx — the Sugarhill Gang, Grandmaster Flash, the Funky 4 + 1 — Harry introduced her band’s latest rap-inspired video. “Using our new single, ‘Rapture,’” Harry said, in a professorial tone, “Blondie and some of our friends put together a number to show you what rapping in the street scene is like.”
  • Furious Rudy Giuliani demands apology after Fox News host hurls contemptuous insults to his face, comparing his findings to the Steele Dossier: ‘Our interview is now OVER’

    President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City, snapped at a Fox Business Network host Tuesday after she compared him to the author of the now-debunked, Russian-sourced Steele dossier. The remarkable comparison by host Lisa Kennedy Montgomery, who’s known as Kennedy, was aimed at the work Giuliani has done in exposing confirmed bombshells about Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son, Hunter. “We will have the people in our news departments verify all of this, because it sounds like there may be something here that is fishy that is causing Americans — giving them pause,”...

    The 2020 MTV Video Music Awards aired on Sunday, August 30 from New York City and Black Lives Matter and get out the vote messages were sprinkled throughout. As with everything during the coronavirus pandemic, this award show was not what we are accustomed to seeing. Many locations were used for the performances and for most there was no live audience. Also of note – the performers were not subject to the quarantine guidelines that any other visitor to New York City would be under. The artists and performers were given special treatment. Host Keke Palmer began the evening by...

    ViacomCBS dropped Nick Cannon from its MTV network following an anti-Semitic tirade in which the host, among other things, accused Jewish people of controlling the global banking system. "ViacomCBS condemns bigotry of any kind and we categorically denounce all forms of anti-Semitism," the media conglomerate, which owns MTV, VH-1, and Cannon’s ‘Wild ‘N Out’ television show, said in a statement Wednesday. "We have spoken with Nick Cannon about an episode of his podcast ‘Cannon’s Class’ on YouTube, which promoted hateful speech and spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories." Cannon sparked a firestorm of criticism earlier in the week after he praised anti-Semitic...

    In 100 days exactly, we will strike again. On April 22, the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, young people and adults across the United States will once again take to the streets to demand climate action. Earth Day will launch three consecutive days of massive strikes, fulfilling our promise to take the climate strike movement beyond what we achieved on September 20. Inaction is not an option. This has been the hottest decade on record and last year was the second hottest ever. Since the bushfire season began in November, fires in Australia have killed 25 people, wiped out over...

    On MTV’s newest series, ’Lip Locked,’ the premise is simple: Can the chemistry between couples be tested by seeing if they can identify a loved one from a lineup based solely on a kiss..?"Whether they’re dating, besties, or even in the friend zone, this test won’t be easy for ANYONE!"-blares the show's carnival-barking promoters. Meh, simple enough, not really evil from just that, maybe. But there's more: The male contestant to be tested is GAY, and not just a faint whiff of Liberace, either. And the unknown ringer girls (?) to be kissed are all from different ethnicities. The kisses?...

    At the MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 26, Taylor Swift won the video of the year award for her latest song "You Need to Calm Down." It's a song that trashes anyone still dissenting from the LGBTQ agenda and begs them to "control your urges to scream about all the people you hate / 'Cause shade never made anybody less gay." The network news shows gushed over her leftist activism and the "Taylor Effect" they expect it to provide. ABC's George Stephanopoulos said, "she's doing it the way she does her music ... with intent and with intelligence." What...

    Who knew that a star of the show GLOW on Netflix was a constitutional scholar? She's not, and yet, actress Alison Brie declared with certainty on the stage of the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards Monday night that what America is doing to immigrants is “unconstitutional and frankly disgusting." As Brie and singer French Montana presented the award for Best Latin Video, they conflated legal and illegal immigrants. While French Montoya wants to be the "voice" of immigrants, as one himself, and said, "we are the people that make this country," he didn’t mention he legally immigrated. Brie chimed in,...

  • TV Ratings: Video Music Awards Hit an All-Time Low on MTV

    For the second straight year, the MTV Video Music Awards drew its smallest audience ever. Monday's show drew 2.25 million viewers and a 1.1 rating among adults 18-49. Across eight Viacom-owned channels, it drew 4.87 million viewers and a 2.2 in the demo; both sets of numbers fall short of the 2017 VMAs, which set the previous low. The awards also aired on a ninth Viacom network, TV Land, for which numbers weren't immediately available. It's highly unlikely, however, that enough people tuned in there to push the VMAs past their 2017 on-air total of 5.36 million viewers and 2.6...
