Does anyone here miss old MTV?

I still remember that in the 90's MTV played good music, cool animation and had brilliant programs. But now we get idiotic shows such as Teen Mom and Jersey Shore. Does anyone else miss old MTV?

Most reality tv and competitions are crap. There are a few exceptions.

While I do miss some of the good music they used to play, I never really watched it much when it had it, and I love Teen Mom, Awkward, Buckwild, Catfish, Jersey Shore, and Snooki and Jwoww. So I actually watch it a lot more now than I did in the past.

I think it did used to be better. But even if it were good now I wouldn't watch it anyway. So it doesn't really affect me.

Back when there was actual music on MTV yes. At least now you can get some Music videos on VH1.

It always amused me when they created MTV2, for "music videos", since that was what MTV was supposed to be (and neither are anymore)

It doesn't really affect me much since I don't have cable tv. But I remember watching MTV in the old days at friends' houses and I loved it. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't like it now if it has stuff like the Jersey Shore.

I used to love MTV growing up. It's hard to believe it's the same channel as it is now.

You mean back when it was music television? Yeah, I can not STAND the stuff on MTV these days. Teen Mom? Really???????????

Yes. I was a huge fan back in the early to mid 80s. I tuned out when they stopped playing music videos. The only non-music show of theirs I ever enjoyed was Remote Control.

Fersure, I remember it was mainly damn good music and Beavis and Butthead.

I loved MTV in the 80's and early 90's when I was a kid... but do I miss it? I doubt I would watch most of it now. I would watch the Headbangers Ball. The rest of it, I already have: Beavis & Butthead, the Maxx, Aeon Flux.

I miss the way that it was more music than programming. I liked some of the old shows, but there is way too much reality tv on there now.

I miss it seems silly for it to still be called mtv when the music part is almost gone

I don't have cable, so can't miss it too much, but - I do think it is a shame that it's all stupid programming and no music now.

P.S., 120 Minutes 4eva!

I never liked MTV to begin with... I can't even think of any shows on MTV that I watched back in the day or even shows I watch now. HM!

I miss it. But I guess I can always go to YouTube for music videos.

I would still watch the original/old school MTV if it was on, it would perfect for background while doing other things. Honestly it would prob be playing most the day.

Daria is one of my favorite shows. I miss those days on MTV. It had a lot more music, and the shows that they did play were not all that bad.

Yes I do miss it. The old shows and even music videos that they actually played. Oh well it is the new genre. Maybe someday they will make another station of all the old hits.
