MTV, Come on…

mtv 1981We all remember when MTV started to ignore the music video. Music videos eventually were only played at 3am or at 3pm for 3o seconds on TRL. MTV needed to create a separate channel just to play music videos. Now MTV2 has abandoned music videos as well, and play 50% MTV reruns.

But this is what I don’t get, why does MTV play a marathon of reality shows from other networks instead of Music Television? I can’t watch anymore America’s Next Top Model! Seriously. It’s not like there aren’t any music videos to play, artists are still making them! What happened to supporting the music industry. This is a time where indie artists can produce themselves, support their own tour, and shoot their own videos. Why not help these real musicians out? I just wonder where MTV is going.
