This Week's Top Web Comedy Video: Why Doesn't MTV Play Music Videos Anymore?

I've done it. You've done it. Your friends have done it. Why, we whine doesn't MTV play music videos anymore? And it's true! They don't. It's just a big seething crap reality tv show pile-on. But you know what? As the (not really) head of MTV programming tells you himself, it's your own damn fault.

And, uh, to be honest? He's got a point.

The rest of this week's top comedy videos, including a dinner party, a lost Bond film, and the history of the internet can be found over at Splitsider.

    It's funny and there is truth to it... and also distortion and untruth to make it funnier.

    The other side is that MTV pioneered the reality TV format before it was even a thing. They more than anyone else killed that part of the music industry themselves, deliberately so they could manipulate the market to suit themselves. Their own programming only featured certain limited genres and pushed away the music listening audience to other places, brining in reality TV programming and other things to replace it.
    Also the fact that people with kids and older all still consume pop culture just as avidly, now more than ever before, things like MTV routinely ignore that demographic because they're focussed on 50 year old 1960s thinking patterns were youth culture is driving things. but it hasn't been that way for a loooong time.

    Oh man it's The Law from VGHS, I loved that series

    Just wanna punch him in his douchey face. Thank you, Freddie Wong.
