MTV's 'Total Request Live' reboot to premiere in October

MTV's 'Total Request Live' reboot to premiere in October

It was an immensely popular show, and it turned host Carson Daly into a star.

The music variety show, which ran for more than 2,200 episodes from 1998 to 2008, will return to the airwaves in October, MTV president Chris McCarthy told the New York Times Sunday.

The reboot of TRL isn't the only plan McCarthy has to reinvigorate MTV.

The iconic Times Square studio, revamped for a new age where network TV battles with social media and streaming services for audiences' attention, will be a part of the revival.

Now, almost a decade after "TRL" aired its final episode in 2008, MTV's current president, Chris McCarthy, has plans to revive the once beloved program.

Sadly, Carson Daly will not be returning as the host of the show and instead, there will be "five fresh-faced co-hosts" at the forefront.

McCarthy said, "Why should it be a man?"

A spokesperson for the company told CBS New York grief counselors have been available for employees. Both got into trouble due to the rough surf, but Kadlec was able to make it to shore .

"When you came into Times Square, you would say, 'Let's go to MTV, '" he told the NYT.

The move comes after MTV ratings have fallen over recent years and turnaround efforts by the network have been unsuccessful.

A laughing Britney Spears joins MTV personality Damien Fahey and entertainer Sean "P. Diddy" Combs on "Total Request Live" (TRL) in October 2003.

McCarthy also revealed that MTV is now developing a reality series showed We Are They about a group of gender-nonconforming young adults' coming-of-age moments.

MTV already changed its MTV Movie & TV Awards into one where awards for acting are not given out in gender-based categories.

"MTV's reinvention", McCarthy explained, "is coming by harnessing its heritage".
