Personally, I'm not too fond of this channel.
I agree when people say "it's not MTV because it shows music." They show some great shows called The Punk Show, Loud (I watch these two a lot), Going Coastal and The Wedge (sometimes I watch these shows). There are also many other music shows that people watch.
However, I also don't really agree about how Much is a music channel. Sure Much Music is a music channel... but when I flick to that channel, I see MTV Cribs. I also see a show called "Much Fakeover" which is basiclly another version of MTV Becoming, except without the cool presents and videos. There is also a show called Fandemonium, where fans are tortured to meet and win cool stuff related to the band. There are also reality shows called 'Til Death Do Us Part and Newly Weds, which again are reality shows borrowed FROM MTV! There is another show called "Much In Your Space" where you get you and your room madeover to look like the artist. And what about Much On Demand? That's like TRL, but with vote-a-matics and located in Canada.
In conclusion: Much is slowly becoming the new MTV for Canadians, and even other countries.
I think Much is soon becoming the new MTV, or just plain old MTV... Newly Weds, Becoming, 'Til Death Do Us Part, Duets, Making The Band 2, etc.
