    On Monday, August 1, MTV turned 30 years old. Media outlets across the country, including Yahoo!, celebrated this auspicious occasion in pop culture. All but ONE media outlet, that is: um, MTV. Like the ungracefully aging Gloria Swanson in Sunset Blvd. or titular character in Logan's Run, MTV bizarrely refused to celebrate its own 30th birthday, and just treated it like any other day.

      Meaningless, I can see why MTV didn't bother with it. It's not the powerhouse it was and didn't want to bring it to the attention of others, which makes it meaningless. lol

      And sadly look what MTV has become. A breeder, for talentless people to be jackasses on Television. Way to go MTV.  Low far you've come

    They say that some people look better/are better as they age...perhaps not true for MTV. I can't say that as an original follower that I even view the channel anymore. Their shows, like Jersey Shore, really turn me off. I'd rather see all day music videos like the good old days!

      LearnFromMe you hit it right on the head.  I don't know how MTV is today, but MTV does stand for Music Television.  From what I've heard there's hardly any music on there anymore.  What happened to the hours of music videos, the Top Ten Countdown.  Oh my God!  I forgot all about that until just now!  Nosatga setting in.  Van Halen--Jump,  Michael Jackson--Thriller, Devo, Ac/Dc, Def Leppard.  I just went back in time.

      Bring back the killer music and the videos.  The rock and roll, the pop, the contemporary rock, the best S*** on earth baby!   big_smile

      As they do that they can put the Jersey Shore where it belongs........................................................just off the Jersey Shore.   smile

    Is that why they stopped caring about playing cool music videos back in 1999 when they filled their schedule with entire seasons of reality TV? Did they get over their teenage years and settled for a less tasteful choice of programs?

    Unfortunately, the network is full of pointless "reality" shows and no longer hardly features music at all.  Pathetic really....

      Why don't they change their name to RTV. 

      Whoever is running that station has been blowing it big time.  They need to live up to the name MTV.
