Oh, will wonders never cease. Music Videos will return to MTV…for a day.
MTV, along with VH-1 and CMT, announced that they will show nothing but music videos all day on the Fourth of July. They’re calling it a "Music Independence Day", and are hurting their arms patting themselves on the back for giving “exposure to artists at a time it can be hard for them to break through to a larger audience.”
Yeah, showing videos on a day when we’ll all be partying and watching fireworks will more than make up for what they’ve put on TV over the course of the last 10 years. Teen Mom and My Super-Sweet 16, anyone?
