MTV Reboots One of Its Network-Defining Shows

Aug 1, 2017  •  Post A Comment

MTV is resurrecting a concept from the archives, with an Oct. 2 premiere locked in for an updated version of its trademark show “TRL.” The original series, hosted by Carson Daly, ran from 1998-2008 and became a showcase for trending artists and popular culture. The “TRL” stands for “Total Request Live.”

MTV is hoping to strike a chord with the elusive youth audience with the franchise reboot, which will feature a rotating lineup of hosts including D.C. Young Fly, Erik Zachary, Amy Pham, Tamara Dhia and Lawrence Jackson.

MTV is expanding its Times Square studio to accommodate larger audiences, expansive sets and simultaneous productions including new digital extensions of “TRL.” Read all about it in the MTV announcement by clicking here.
