MTV to Unveil Revamped Channel at Halftime

NEW YORK - This year, the only thing MTV is exposing during the Super Bowl halftime is a revamped network.
After producing the infamous Janet Jackson halftime show last year, MTV will launch a new look to its sister station, MTV2, during the Feb. 6 game break. MTV and MTV2 will both air a preview special of MTV2, featuring a combination of music, shows and random content aimed at young males.

"Our audience is looking for an alternative to the Super Bowl halftime show and we felt that the new MTV2 fit the bill perfectly," said Van Toffler, president of the MTV Networks Group.

The official halftime show on the Fox broadcast will star Paul McCartney. Last year's show, produced by MTV, resulted in widespread criticism after Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction."

MTV2, a network showing mostly videos since 1996, will launch a new format at midnight on Feb. 7. The new MTV2 is composed of music videos, new shows, graphics and random clips "that have been scoured from the Internet, old B-movies and the public service dustbin."


Idont know about anyone here, but im one of the people they're targeting and i would much rather turn on the food network for my halftime entertainment then mtv. but sir paul will put on a great show, and be sure to catch john forgerty before the game.

I'll bet $1,000 the revamped MTV2 won't include Subterranean, the only thing on there still worth watching.

I know. That's what I was thinking. I love Subterranean.

The only thing that will make this a good thing is if they get rid of both Simpsons shows, TRL, all those dumb reality shows aimed at pissing people off, and start playing something besides hip-hop again.

MTV2 is actually alright. MTV needs to change.
