MTV CANCELS TRL
Thursday, September 18, 2008
It started as a nightly half-hour show, counting down the top videos of the day. It turned into one of the most popular shows on MTV. Total Request Live, or TRL, became a phenomenon with young music lovers. It helped launch the careers of artists like Eminem, Britney Spears and the Backstreet Boys. But after 10 years on the air, TRL has been canceled. The show was just not getting the viewers that it used to.
Last night, Carson Daly, the original host of the show, spoke with Dave Sirulnick, the big boss at MTV, on his NBC talk show, Last Call. Sirulnick said he thought TRL should go out on a high note, since the show is celebrating 10 years. He says the final TRL will air on November 8th, a Saturday, so everyone can see it. Daly and other celebrities who were there for the ride will appear on the last show.
