TRL, Shoutouts to MAH GIRRRRL, SHANIQUA IN WEST PLAINFIELD!!! WOOOO!!!, to Cease in November

No, it’s really true.  For reals yo.  As if today couldn’t get any worse, MTV announced that it would put TRL on hiatus on it’s tenth anniversary in November (producer Dave Sirulnick gives some sort of logical explanation to this, but like a facebook relationship, its complicated).  This makes me really sad, because I personally wanted to be among the throng of screaming high school kids making who shouted “wooooooo!” every time a camera passed by them.  But the show, which in all honesty was getting lackluster ratings and losing its popularity to other shows, needed to be put down like Old Yeller.  I think MTV got the message that nobody was watching TV after school anymore ever since sidekicks, texting, and crackblackberries started ruling the tween and teenage world.  Plus, if a pop act was going to make it big, a MySpace campaign or facebook group could do so much more than some two-bit TV appearance with this dude.

I just want to know: will we go all retro and see Carson Daly hosting with special guests Backstreet Boys and Eminem?  I hope so, yes.
