Today's TWoP News: March 17, 2009

Apparently everyone is out watching parades or looking for leprechauns, because today is a slow news day in TV land. Very. Very. Slow. When Sci Fi Channel's stupid name change is still what people are buzzing about, that's not good. Unless you live by the no news is good news philosophy, in which case, hey, shows you like didn't get cancelled today.

A Moment of Silence for TRL

A Moment of Silence for <i>TRL</I>

While it has probably been at least nine years since I've watched TRL (or Total Request Live as it was called back in my day), I still feel a brief moment of sadness for the show that's going off the air (for now at least) after ten years. I blame Pete Wentz and that oddity that is FNMTV for its demise. If you can see the pretty people on that show talking to the inexplicably popular Wentz, why would you want to watch some random VJ talk to celebs? Especially when the videos on TRL have been pretty much cut down to nothing. They are demoted to a small corner of the screen, with lots of text-message commentary taking up the rest. I don't care if CuteJulia145 down in South Carolina thinks that Katy Perry is, like, the most talented artist ever, and how she'd totally kiss her if she had the chance. I'd actually like to see the video. I guess I'm just old-fashioned that way.
