  1. “Among the personalities lined up for the show are Nick Cannon, Bam Margera, Kat Graham, DJ Khaled, Fat Joe, Biz Markie and Ghostface Killah.”
    …who?

  2. They are stars in that market and it could be very popular with the MTV crowd and hit the under 35 audience very well. It is actually a really good concept.

  3. Yeah, as a sponsor with a product to sell, I want to reach a bunch of unemployed/underemployed “Millennials,” who sit around in their parent’s basements all day and night watching MTV. That’s a demographic I’d kill to reach!!!!!
