VH1 more interesting?

posted by Jason Kottke   Jan 27, 1999

Where the heck did VH1 come from all of a sudden? “Behind the Music” and “Where Are They Now?” are really neat shows. Is it that I’m getting older and moving from MTV’s demographic to VH1’s? Or is it just that VH1 is just getting more interesting while revealing what we should have known all along: that MTV is too mainstream and “hip” to be timely and relevent.

Oh well….neither one of them plays music videos anymore. Is that good or bad?

Also, while we’re on the subject of MTV, they should sell their Real World and Road Rules shows to HBO or Skinemax. Instead of a bunch of people getting on each other’s nerves, they could have a bunch of people just plain gettin’ it on. Now that’s a show.
