A channel that used to be cool because it played music for all tastes (metal, pop, rock, rap, electronic, etc.) as well as music related shows (Making the video, Behind the music, TRL, etc.). Now is restricted to pop and hip hop and no particularly talented artists. Since the late 2000s, music represents around 5% of its content and the other 95% consists of shows regarding knocked up teenagers and the very worst of the U.S. society (a.k.a. Jersey Shore) who get paid thousands of dollars just for getting drunk and behaving like idiots.
MTV programming nowadays: Jersey Shore, 16 and pregnant, Teen Mom, etc.
