MTV Is Officially Bringing Back TRL

July 31, 2017

My elementary through middle school ritual used to be as follows.

Get home from school, do some homework, have a snack (preferably ice cream), followed by sitting on the couch and taking in every moment of MTV’s TRL. The celebs, the music. EVERYTHING.

That why the inner child in me was devasted in November 2008, when the show had its final episode.

It truly was the end of an era.

But these days, since everything old is new again, MTV decided, you know what?! Let’s bring it back!

MTV President Chris McCarthy shared:

"When you came into Times Square, you would say, 'Let’s go to MTV' ... If we’re going to come back and reinvent MTV, the studio is a given. It is the centerpiece."

Although Carson Daly will sadly not be returning as host, five new hosts will now be in the seat, one of whom is a Chicago radio DJ by the name of Erik Zachary. 

The show is slated to premiere in October, and will be an hour long.
