Uncommon Commentary #148: Perhaps "MTV" Stands for "Moronic Television"

MTV originally was infamous for showing salacious and vacuous videos, which rôle has (according to the latest information that I possess, which, admittedly, is not very up-to-date) largely been filled by its evil emanation MTV3; MTV itself, which pioneered the vapid "reality" trend in television with its The Real World, now seems to devote itself chiefly to similar programming, the newest example of which is the lewd (and otherwise unwholesome) Skins. This series may soon be canceled; if so, good riddance to it, but this chapter in the sordid history of MTV confirms it as what I on the Doman Domain hereby officially pronounce it to be: the worst network on (free or basic-cable) television, ever.
