MTV tries to blow a 'Fuse'

Published: 2004-01-13
MTV pioneered the music video and for years it was the only station where you could see the newest videos from the hottest rock stars. Lately MTV has been battling with a new music video channel "Fuse". Apparently MTV acquired exclusive contracts for videos from some record labels but never forced the issue…until now.

Instead of competing with Fuse on a musical level and actually playing more of what their name implies (namely music), MTV has decided to add to their version of reality TV.. The Osbournes and The Newlyweds will be back. And adding to the line up will be a Valentines Day special on the wedding of Carmen Electra and Dave Navarro. MTV is also launching their version of an Extreme Make Over where participants get make over to look like a celebrity – the impersonators dream come true.

Whatever happened to the music in Music Television?
