MTV Cancels TRL – Eminem Responds

Posted By on September 16, 2008

    Symbolizing the end of an era, MTV has decided to cancel it's one time highly successful daily music video countdown show, Total Request Live. TRL debuted in 1998 with Carson Daly as it's host and became a huge hit after introducing a number of pop and hip hop acts. Over 10 years and 2,000 episodes, TRL helped break huge artists like 50 Cent, Kanye West, The Game and Eminem. "I'm going to miss TRL," Eminem in a statement. "Where else will I be able to start feuds, defend my honor vigorously
and act like an angry teenager on national TV? Oh wait…the VMAs!"

    Total Request Live will air it's final episode in November, the executive producer says. A two-hour special celebrating the shows mark on pop culture is reportedly in the works and scheduled to air also in November
