I remember hearing that. Honestly I think it declined without Carson. And might have something to do with MTV gearing away from music videos and more towards shows.

I think the decline came when Carson wasn't the host anymore too. That was around when I stopped watching.

Carson was the one who really fought to have TRL on the air. He was the one who was in a basement type set at prime time airing Total Request, he really sold the show. And the fact that he was so real and never tired to be one of those polished VJ's who tried so hard looking great and never really got what the show was about.

A lot of the VJ's were good. Hilarie, Quddus, Damien..etc...they were good. Some, were not so good and took TRL down with the Titanic

For me Carson was the best part of TRL and when he left I only watched sometimes. But as they slowly seemed to show less of the videos I watched even less.

I also stopped watching when Carson left. It just wasn't the same for me anymore. I think TRL was the last show on MTV to play videos so I was surprised when they decided to cancel it.

I know we have youtube and other places for videos but I still miss watching them on MTV.

Amen. The good VJs actually knew about music. You could tell that they lived and breathed music. Some of the VJs (Vanessa) seemed more like Entertainment Tonight correspondents which is fine but they shouldn't host a music show.

I agree with that completely. If they are going to be showing videos someone that knows about music is much better.

most of the VJ's lived and breathed music, which is the way a VJ should be. Some like Vanessa were there to just be noticed and get into the business and not necessarily in the moment

I didn't like any of the newer VJ's with the exception to maybe Lala. Quduss, Damien, Hilarie, and Vanessa really annoyed me for some reason. Carson's the only one I recall liking, so I'm happy to see how his career's progressed and that he's the most successful out of the hosts.

It was never the same after Carson left.

very true. Carson made it about the kids about the music that was popular at the time. And he was never short of making everything real and pointing out the things that kids notice. It became so...political after Carson left and never really about the music that fans really wanted to see

Luckily I don't think I was still watching when he left.

I loved TRL, I really miss it. I liked it best when Carson was there though. Why did he leave?
