    The Big Ten is the MTV talk show series which brings you music videos and celebrity interviews in the morning. MTV realizes that weekday mornings are no fun, and set to work in creating something to pep you up as you roll out of bed. They took the fun and excitement of late night talk shows and brought it to the morning, providing entertainment and music for early risers who need an energy boost. The show is hosted by Damien Fahey, who brings you the 10 biggest music videos every morning, because nothing wakes you up like some great music. Between these videos Damien is joined by celebrity friends for some coffee and questions, with stars like Hilary Swank, Robin Thicke, Hayden Panettierre and Daniel Radcliffe setting their alarms early to join the fun. These aren't typical questions though, as the stars are put through the Big Ten Split, where they are asked some off-the-wall questions. Grab some coffee and tune in for some music and celebs to get your day started off right in MTV's The Big Ten.moreless

    Hottest MCs In The Game is the MTV countdown of who a panel of experts list as the hottest rappers in the game today. The controversial list is back, with the same criteria as last year. The decision is made on a combination of artistic execution, that is lyrical skill and flow; commercial success, number of units sold and chart and radio spots. MTV will run down the list in the week before the show, leaving the top 5 for the premiere on October 24, 2010. Join the round table discussion between Sway Calloway, Shaheem Reid, Rahman Dukes, Jayson Rodriguez, Steven Roberts, Sean Lee, Hillary Crosley, Tuma Basa, Sheila Grullon and Yomi Desalu, as they duke it out over who should be on the list, and who should take the top spot. With 2008 going to Kanye West, and 2009 going to Jay-Z, can anybody upset the Roc-a-fella cohorts? With spots 5-10 already in the books, featuring strong contenders like Young Money's Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne and surprise additions like Waka Flocka Flame, it's anybody's guess who will fill the top 5 on Hottest MCs In The Game.moreless

    Yo! MTV Raps is the classic MTV show that brought Hip-Hop and Rap Music to the whole country in the 80's and 90's. Hitting the airwaves in 1988, Yo! MTV Raps played hip hop music videos and had guests like the legendary Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, and Run-DMC. A force for hip hop, the show brought the new genre of music to people across the country who weren't aware of the urban movement. Hosted by Fab 5 Freddy, Ed Lover, and Doctor Dre, and was one of the highest rated MTV shows of the time. The original series aired until 1995, when it was closed out with a freestyle cipher featuring legendary artists like Salt-N-Pepa, who also appeared on the first episode of the series. With moments like Ol' Dirty Bastard's drunk freestyle and Tupac Shakur's admitting that he assaulted filmmakers the Hughes Brothers, Yo! MTV Raps captured some of the most important moments and artists of old school rap, and launched the young genre into an international favorite.moreless

    TRL

    MTV - Music Television (ended 2008)
    Total Request Live (commonly known as TRL) is a television program on MTV that features popular music videos. The program plays the top ten most requested videos of the day, as requested by viewers who can vote by phone or online. The countdown starts with the tenth most requested video and ends with the most requested. The program generally airs every weekday for one hour. The roots of TRL go back to 1997 when MTV began producing MTV Live (originally hosted by British VJ Toby Amies) from a studio in Times Square in New York. MTV Live featured celebrity interviews, musical performances, and regular news updates. Music videos were not the major focus of the program. During the same time period, MTV aired a countdown show simply called Total Request, hosted by Carson Daly. Total Request was far more subdued, as Daly introduced music videos from an empty, dimly lit set. As the show progressed and gained more momentum with viewers tuning in, it was soon added to the list of daytime programming during MTV's Summer Share in Seaside Heights, New Jersey. The countdown would end up being one of the most watched and most interactive shows in recent MTV history that summer, proving that it had potential to become an even larger success by combining with the element of live television. By the fall of 1998, MTV producers decided to merge the real-time aspect of MTV Live and the fan-controlled countdown power of Total Request into Total Request Live, which made its official premiere from the MTV Studios in New York on September 14, 1998. The show has since grown to become MTV's unofficial flagship program. The widely known acronym of TRL was adopted as the official title of the show in February 1999, after former VJ's Carson Daly and Dave Holmes began using it on air regularly. The program is now rarely, if not ever, referred to as its original title Total Request Live. TRL spent its first year developing a cult-type following, by spring 2000 the countdown reached its peak, becoming a very recognizable pop culture icon in its first two years of existence; however, its influence seems to have greatly diminished since. TRL is MTV's prime outlet for music videos nowadays as the network continues to concentrate on reality-based programming. In addition to the music videos, TRL has daily guests as it is a popular promotion tool used by many musicians, actors, and other celebrities to promote their newest works to the show's target teen audience. Music videos that air on TRL are subject to a general "retirement" rule, that they may only remain on the countdown for a limited amount of days, the current cap is 50 days (previously 65, this number was reduced in 2002 in order to promote more diversity and give other artists a chance to enter the top ten). Artists who do manage to hang onto the countdown and reach retirement are awarded with a plaque, commemorating their achievement. On October 23, 2002, TRL celebrated its 1,000th episode. The show reached its seventh anniversary in September 2005, maintaining its stake as MTV's longest-running live program. In 2003, Carson Daly stepped down as the host of TRL in order to host NBC's Last Call. The show is currently hosted by a revolving door of VJs including Damien Fahey, Hilarie Burton, Quddus, La La Vasquez, Vanessa Minnillo, and Susie Castillo. On November 16, 2008 after 10 years on the air, TRL ended with a three hour long farewell celebration. Joining the party, were many famous celebrities, who helped define TRL, stopping by to reflect on their favorite TRL moments and also returning were the show's hosts throughout the years including Carson Daly.moreless

    MTV - Music Television (ended 2003)
    120 Minutes was a weekly television show dedicated to alternative music and college radio that aired on MTV and MTV2 from 1986-2003. The show was hosted by several MTV VJs early in its run (e.g., Alan Hunter, J.J. Jackson, Kevin Seal), but it developed a clearer focus by 1988 with its first long-term host, Dave Kendall (the show's original producer). The video playlist also focused more on artists popular in college and alternative radio (e.g., R.E.M., Siouxsie & the Banshees, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sonic Youth), rather than on "light rotation" videos.

    As the show progressed into the 1990s, it began to feature live musical performances and occasional guest hosts (e.g., Thurston Moore, Henry Rollins), as well as a new rotation of show hosts (e.g., Lewis Largent, Matt Pinfield). 120 Minutes also featured the hosts appearing at different musical events, such as Lollapalooza, the Tibetan Freedom Concert, and England's Reading Festival, often conducting live interviews with musical acts present. In the United Kingdom, 120 Minutes was also featured on MTV in the mid-1990s, hosted for two years by ex-Wonder Stuff frontman Miles Hunt.

    During its run, 120 Minutes became known as a reliable source for new alternative music as well as groundbreaking artists pushing through into the mainstream. However, in the spring of 2000, MTV decided to cancel regular airings of 120 Minutes in order to make room for other developing shows on the channel (arguably, for shows that were seen to be more profitable). Nevertheless, 120 Minutes eventually moved to MTV2 in 2001, where it was able to continue its broadcast for the following two years, including another rotation of show hosts (e.g., Dave Holmes, Chris Booker, Jancee Dunn, Jim Shearer). Shearer, the final show host, brought 120 Minutes to an eventual end on May 4th, 2003. Shortly afterwards, MTV2 began airing a similar version of 120 Minutes called Subterranean.moreless
