Simply put: Trash. Well, They do have some good top ten music previews, but all of their reality shows are pure trash. most of the people on the shows act like they live in the urban/uptown areas or are from a completely different country (imports). In most of the shows like rock of love, I love money and charm school, they often have the following in common:

-stupid, territorial, woman with big boobs in low cut/skin tight shirts/skirts (see trashy or ghetto).
-rich male hosts who are often players and music producers (not many people know them though). They often enjoy it when the girls they are hosting with fight and then toss them away when they no longer can get any in between episodes.
-TV Time
-The cliche's: "I'm so confused", "I'm here to win", "I will do everything I can to make you feel better", "Time to be exposed", "I dunno what im gonna do", "I really wanna get to know (insert host name here)", "omg im going home tonight", "she/he should go home", "I'm not here for friends," or "I'm here for (insert host name here)".
-rap/music producers who host the shows suck sooo bad.
-All the people on the shows have a fake "username" describing their personality.
-Unnecessary profanity? (probably to make it seem real)
-Little "shocker cutscenes" that appear every time someone says an offensive line or pun.
-Fighting, but ONLY between woman (the guys on the shows like I love money never fight)
-Lot's of alcohol trashed up to look like expensive wine.
-Most of the shows have the word "of love" in it and the titles look like they were made in photoshop.
-Are interchangeable with each other and often trade characters
-Everyone is forces to live together in a mansion of some sort... Of course for more drama given that they are only supplied limited resources.
-Guy 1: Turns to VH1

-Guy 2: "Ugh dude not again..."

-Guy 1: "What's wrong with VH1"

-Guy 2: "Dude it's fake. Everyone on that channel has an IQ of a squirrel and the chicks look like rejected imports from my old playboy magazine. You know those 'dating' shows are based off of Polygamy right?"

-Guy 2: "Woah dude omg! Check out that girls boobs! I'd tap that!"

-Guy 1: "Nevermind... I'ma go get something out of the fridge. You want somethin?"

-Guy 2: "Yeah just hand me my bag of nuts from that tree in our yard. I saved them from last spring!!!"

a better channel than MTV, but still kinda shitty sometimes. I mean, come on! who fucking wants some british guy ranting on about the "FABULOUS LIVES OF *insert rich annoying celebrity here*" But still has awesome shows. Like, I Love The 80's, 70's and 90's. Also, Behind The Music is good, when it talks about the right people. Best Week Ever is ok. Now on to the bad shows.
Awesomely Bad:...great, i dont give a fuck
Some red carpet show: go die right now i dont care.
Some OTHER red carpet show: see above
VH1 has way too many List shows. Top 40 *insert random thing here* of all time, Top 100 *insert something else here* of all time
VH1: Behind The Music: Guns N' Roses Ok, ill watch that

GODDAM IT! *flips to comedy central

Stands for Video Hits One. A second music video channel started by MTV in 1985. Originally hyphenated as "VH-1" until 1994. Currently owned by Viacom, who also owns MTV, CBS, Showtime, and Nickelodeon.
While VH1 doesn't show many videos, it does more interesting stuff like "I Love The 70's/80's" unlike that boring, predictable, and fake reality TV crap shown on MTV.

Better than MTV eventhough there both owned by the same company
At least Vh1 plays music videos and has no TRL

A station all about music and entertainment. Unlike the shithole MTV, they actually have good programming and they play good music!
Also, unlike MTV, they do not claim to be all about music, which gives them the right to show awesome programming like I Love the 80's.

The channel MTV should of been. VH1 has a good variety of shows that have to do with music! MTV is like satan reincarnated into a "music" channel. oops! I mean a "reality" TV channel.
MTV, TRL, The Real World, and Road Rules all suck A$$! I want my VH1!
