MTV Cancels TRL

MTV’s long running show Total Request Live (TRL) will air its final episode in November, the show’s executive producer announced yesterday (September 15). The show, which premiered in 1998 with Carson Daly as host, introduced a number of pop and Hip-Hop acts into the mainstream. During the show’s 10-year run of over 2,000 episodes, TRL helped break acts like 50 Cent, Plies, T-Pain, Kanye West, The Game, Eminem and others.

"I'm going to miss TRL," lamented Eminem in a statement. "Where else will I be able to start feuds, defend my honor vigorously and act like an angry teenager on national TV? Oh wait...the VMAs!"

A two-hour special celebrating the shows mark on pop culture is reportedly in the works and scheduled to air in November.
