Carson Daily, the show's original host.
Just a reminder. The finale is on Sunday.
On one hand, it's a shame MTV has to axe TRL. TRL is one of the few things the network did have left that featured music...I suppose they're just going to replace it with more re-runs of that lame show of theirs 'The Hills'...
On the other hand, TRL was basically mired in nothing but ghetto-rap/Beyonce/Jonas Brothers videos over the past couple years, all of which I for one am sick of, so by that logic it doesn't seem all that bad that they're pulling the plug on it...

Hey, guys. Don't forget it's tonight. 8pm.
So...no one saw it? I saw the first hour then switched to Family Guy and American Dad then watched the last hour. 3 hrs. wow. TRL went out with a bang.
I saw a few minutes of it. It was kind of nostalgic to see Carson Daly there and to hear that "Slim Shady" song. Otherwise, I don't really care that TRL's gone.
I stopped watch TRL in 2001 or 2002, so to me this show was already over. But...to actually have a FINALE was kinda like, wow, that's it the show that was a big part of our pre-teen years is literally over. It like closes a chapter in our lives in a weird sort of way.
I'm personally, very indifferent over the supposed end of "TRL". I used to watch it regularly when I was in high school, but stopped around the same time that Carson Daly left. I guess, this also coincides with MTV's programming mostly being made up of stuff that don't appeal to me personally, like all of their reality show crap like "The Hills" or "Paris Hilton's New BFF", etc.
MTV needs to figure out a way to appeal beyond a very narrow demographic if it wasn't to succeed long term. Right now, in my estimation, there seriously aiming for the lowest of dominators.
I stopped caring for MTV when I was 11. But yeah, it'd be nice for MTV to at least show something that's not a bad reality show.
You're 16, so that makes sense. lol. I'm 21, so MTV was a big part of my pre-teen years. It's like what Disney Channel is to kids these days.
i'm 30..... MTV used to be MUSIC now its spoiled brat's and dating shows and garbage. when was the last music video
I'm surprised it lasted this long as well. I never really watched TRL ever but from what I remember they didn't even air the whole music video...
Its also true that the internet and youtube in general made the show irrelevant but its also true that MTV hasn't been about music for a decade or more now probably so I don't see what the big deal is about this being the last "music" show since I'm sure there was little music in it to begin with.
It's coming back in October.
MTVs Iconic music countdown show TRL is returning on October 2 2017 the Series originally aired from 1998-2008 http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/mtvs-trl-set-return-fall/story?id=48946261
I'll say this: Carson Daly is a tough act to follow.

The very thought of bringing TRL back in today's landscape is in itself, an even tougher act to follow:
MTV’s Revival Of ‘Total Request Live’ Seems Doomed To Fail
And you can see why MTV is one of the most notable cases of network decay, especially that their most recent music video programming block Music Feed was cancelled in April.

It's good to see something like this return.
We can go on forever about how, when, and why MTV entered its dramatic network decay, but I think the short end of it is that sometime by the late '90s-turn of the millennium, MTV stopped being innovative. Instead of being this revolutionary, cutting edge music channel that was always on point of what was going on in current pop culture, it started taking too many short-sided short-cuts. These days, MTV is pretty much just another random, blended cable channel
They really dug their own grave so to speak, by trying to be an all encompassing "youth channel" (when it has Freeform and The CW to compete with) instead of being strictly a music channel. MTV should in essence, by the CNN/MSNBC/Fox News of the music industry instead of cruising on autopilot with the same rotation of reality shows, oft-network sitcoms reruns and movies, and what not.
And bringing TRL back just feels like a transparent attempt by MTV to relieve its supposed "glory days". Again, going back to my suggestion that MTV is no longer creatively innovative and taking a bunch of short-cuts in order to stay relevant.
