MTV's TRL finished?

Published: 2007-01-18
The show that sprung the countdown format to television may be cancelled. There are reports that Total Request Live may be getting the axe.

The reason for its termination would be the lack of viewers. An inside source told the New York Daily that "The ratings are at an all-time low, around 300,000 viewers. The show is going be cancelled and rebranded." The 300,000 TV viewers mark that it's down half since 2001 when it was 600,000.

Trying to keep the show fresh, there has been a continuous rotations of VJs, and with the popularity of video on the internet, TV has high competition when keeping viewers. Since the launch of the show in 1998 hosts have varied from, the infamous Jesse, Damian Fahey, Vanessa Minnillo, and such news VJs as Sway and Kurt Lauder.

As of now no MTV rep has commented, but president Michael Wolf suddenly left his job last Thursday, sending a message in of itself.
