Apparently, MTV’s TRL is still on, but not for long. MTV has cut off that bitch after 10 years. The executive producer of TRL said the show’s final episode will be a 2-hour special airing on a Saturday afternoon in November. He went on to say that TRL isn’t ending for good, but they felt it was the right time to give it a break.
That makes sense. I mean, TRL does show music videos and MTV obviously doesn’t care about those anymore, so it no longer fits in. I’m sure they will replace TRL with some badly-acted faux reality show.
TRL should have shut their doors in 2001 after Mimi’s epic ice cream meltdown (clip above). Seriously, they would have ended on a high note. HIGH being the key word. I never understood the point of TRL until I watched Mimi go crazy on it. That’s when I realized that the only TRL was born was to give us that moment. And for that, I thank TRL.
