    MTV has been doing some re-tooling. The latest announcements are that they’ll be bringing back “MTV Cribs” … on Snapchat … and that they have joined the podcasting game in a big way:

    The podcasts will record in both New York and Los Angeles, and will be available via iTunes, Spotify and SoundCloud. More podcasts will be announced at a later date. They include: “Skillset with Amy Nicholson.” a film podcast featuring the critic in the title; “No Requests Live,” a weekly music and pop culture roundtable; “The Stakes,” a weekly political magazine; “North Mollywood,” featuring Molly Lambert and Alex Pappademas offering the California view of pop culture; and “Speed Dial with Ira & Doreen,” in which Ira Madison III and Doreen St. Felix host a bi-coastal program that tackles music, pop culture, sex and race.

    So far, I’ve gotta say I’ve been really impressed with what they’ve put together. I still find their website to be an abomination, but the content and writing has been top notch.

    Didn't it come out that most of the Cribs episodes were fake? Meaning, the celebrity didn't live there or didn't own that many cars?

    Not sure if it's mentioned in those links or not - but surprised to see it wasn't in the main post on here - but they also announced they're bringing back Unplugged this Fall.
  12. Excited for the return of Unplugged for sure. Would be cool to see MTV return to being the force it used to be in breaking new artists.

    I stopped paying attention to MTV after they did like 4 minutes of programming then 7 minutes of commercials for other programs.

    Seems like MTV is really trying to bring back its glory days...

    Although I am wondering how this plays out. Could it be too little too late? Or will this be a success for them?

    I did that when all tv stations started doing that (and I'm pretty sure that aspect ratio of programming to commercials is worse now)
