True a lot of bands have MTV to thank for their money and fame.

IIRC, radio also has to pay to play music (perfomance rights etc.)

MTV is great b/c of Jackass, Beavis & Butthead, Daria, the Jackass spin offs, the Real World/ Road Rules junk, MTV Music Video Awards, MTV Movie Awards, Spider-Man, Punked, and other shows.... MTV means more than Music Television now... it truly is a culture channel. People complain about music videos but seriously... most music videos suck and music is fractured into som many genres and styles, MTV itself could never please everyone or even half...

I accept it. If MTV didn't do what they have done over the years and let extraneous programming take over, MTV would be dead...

It is a shame if MTV2 is also going the way of MTV but what can one do...

VH1 is fun and there is Viewers Choice or whatever that popped up....

Let me add that I don't whole-heartedly think MTV is perfect or 100% great but it has always been an entertaining channel for me. Of course I would like to see more music videos but I have the ability to channel switch so its no big deal

The only thing I watch on MTV is MTV2 Headbanger's Ball, suprisingly they play decent videos from bands that I like, but beside that I don't watch anything else on that cursed network
