MTV Doesn’t Play Music Videos Anymore. I Know. Get Over It.

mtv-new-logo

People are doing Shasta McNasty in their pants over the fact that MTV has officially changed their logo for the first time in almost 30 years.  Yes, they removed the “music television” from the bottom of the logo.  Are you guys ok?  You still with me?  Close the window, it’ll be fine.  MTV’s head of marketing, Tina Exarhos, said, “The people who watch it today, they don’t refer to MTV as music television. They don’t have the same emotional connection that, say, the people who are writing about [the logo change] do.”

Beyond cropping out the words “Music Television,” Exarhos said her team redrew and minimally tweaked the placement of the “TV” within the “M.”

Hopefully this will finally put an end to all the annoying people who say, “Why doesn’t MTV play music videos anymore?!”  and “Why do they even call it music television since they don’t play any videos.”  Really, people?  Really?  No one can put the two and two together and get their mind around a little thing called “ad revenue.”  Hmmm.  Let’s see.  Are people more apt to sit and watch something like, say, a Jersey Shore marathon for 5 hours or sit and watch (consistently) 5 hours of music videos?  I’ll go out on a limb and say that people would watch 7 minutes of music videos before changing the channel.  So quit your bitching.  If MTV only played videos there wouldn’t be an MTV still around today and you would never have welcomed such favorites into your living room like Snooki, Lauren Conrad, Spencer Pratt, Kelly Cutrone, Flora, or any of those brats from My Super Sweet Sixteen….or Butch from Teen Mom!  So, America, get your priorities straight and watch music videos online and be fine with it.  Good day.

    I’m not saying that MTV should get rid of all shows that aren’t music related, but at the same time with all the shows they rerun more than once a day they should replace that with MUSIC. If it’s call Music Television then maybe they should put a little more music on….at least play nusic through the day not just super early where no one can even see it. I mean 3am to 8am, that’s only about 6 hours of music!!! Petty as hell.

    “I’ll go out on a limb and say that people would watch 7 minutes of music videos before changing the channel.”

    That’s like saying people will only listen to music on the radio for 7 minutes. If playing music videos is so terrible then how did MTV make it work for the 19 years from 1981-2000?

    Lauren Conrad I know from her clothing line.

    Snooki I know from YouTube and her appearance on The Tonight Show.

    Who the heck are Kelly Cutrone and Flora?

    People should be screaming in the streets. Never stop complaining! Why the hell does MTV not play music? So sick of it really. Growing up in the 80′s ” I want my MTV!” was the call back then. I did not think MTV was even around anymore.

    All their shows are not even relevant anymore. Who watch the Realworld? This show has not been relevant since 1996. Jersy Bore…..what loser watches this?

    Bring back the videos or fade to black. I’d rather watch snow melt.

    Annoying people? I remember the days when MTV aired great music from all genres, from Nirvana to Snoop Dogg. Now MTV is pure shit. I can guarantee that people would rather watch good music videos than watch horrible TV shows. I wish that the TV executives were loyal to music and what it stands for, rather than being motivated by greed. Does that make me an annoying person? Or does it make you, in the words of the legendary Beavis and Butthead, a butthole?
