From 1981-1997, MTV was a great network, playing great (and sometimes not so great) music and good programming, most notably Beavis and Butthead
. However, around 1997, MTV started focusing on Pop music, shifting away from the Rock music that made them famous, and canceling Beavis and Butthead (though fortunately brought it back in 2011). While MTV did air decent reality shows in the early part of the 21st century like Jackass
and Viva La Bam
, it was mainly focused on crap-tacular programs like Room Raiders
. Then in 2009 started the era of their worst programs-crap like Teen Mom
, 16 and Pregnant
, and worst of all Jersey Shore
. MTV is now a network of complete filth and is in need of a complete overhaul.
MTV was once a great network for music but now focuses on the most mind-numbing crap imaginable.
