    Truth in advertising and such.

    Are they looking for suggestions for what the M can stand for now? The article didn't say.

    Soon they really will be the RVTV contemplated two decades ago in Tapeheads..

    So they actually paid someone to crop off the bottom 3rd and convert to bitmap?

    Now they can drop the M. It's all been downhill since Real World season 1.

    Heh, I read "MTVTM" on the right side, which is a nice palindrome - though most likely unintended.

    They should have just added a "&" between Musik and Television if they really think they still have music somewhere in the program.

    It was also kind of weird seeing the logo on all sorts of low-priced consumer electronic tack like digital tuners and - heh - portable CD players.

    Reality shows killed video stars.

    The most puzzling part about this change is why they switched "®" ("registerered trademark") to "™" ("unregistered trademark").
