    Hi all..

    Has anybody else stumbled across this show, I think it is called "the fuse"???? It rocks. It is nothing buy music videos in hour or so long blocks of music videos and nothing but...so far.

    Nice welcome releif from MTV, MTV2 and VH-1. If they could only play more music video's and less of the other crap. I say dump all of there stuff and play video's all day long like back in the old days.....ok end rant.

    If you can try and find this channel...it is very nice!

    It's funny how MTV2 was created specifically to show videos like MTV did back when. I regularly BEGGED my cable company to carry it when it launched. So, I got a dish.

    Since radio is so bad in my area, I used to just leave MTV2 on while I did my daily routine. At least I was caught up on current music/video trends.

    Now, I guess I'm going to have to look forward to MTV3. [​IMG]

    I can't believe MTV gets any kind of worthwhile ratings for 48 hours per day of garbage. (72 counting VH-1)

    I easily watch twice as much VH-1 Classic now as I do MTV, MTV2, & VH-1 COMBINED. Unfortunately, as for current trends, I am clueless... :wink:

    Fuse is on a big marketing push. They bought ads on the billboards and telephones across from MTV's studios last week. Ironically, they bought the ads from Viacomm (MTV's parent). Their whole point is to mock MTV's lack of actual music.

    I find myself watching a lot of VH-1 Mega Hits during commercials or when nothing else is on. Like Classic, it serves up nothing but music videos, only for the Adult Contemporary market (with a few oddities like the truly detestable Eminem thrown in).

    My only beef is that when a video is red hot they show it multiple times per hour, every hour... 24 hours a day. I'm pretty sure I know all the words to Beautiful and Landslide now.
