Did you know that MTV used to play music videos? Long before Jersey Shore and Teen Mom, their ‘M’ stood for ‘Music’.

The Dawn of Reality TV

That all began to change when The Real World premiered in 1992. The groundbreaking reality show ran until 2013 and changed the direction of not just MTV, but television at-large.

New Millennium Television

The New Millennium invited us into MTV Cribs from 2000 to 2008, Punk’d us from 2003 to 2007, and set up what’s Next from 2005 to 2008.

MTV Revivals, Reboots, and Remakes

Of course, it would be hard to forget Daria — mostly because the late-1990s animated icon is set for a revival in the near future.
