When I grew up with MTV in 1998, TRL became the most watched show in the afternoons. I used to call MTV's 1-800 phone number to request a video in the top 10 and it would be on there!!! This before the days of Youtube and Facebook made videos popular. It was more than just videos. It was about Times Square, the screaming fans who crowd near MTV's studios, and of course, the celebs and Carson Daly. I liked it when they put up a rap, rock, or alternative video but once it was all pop, I stopped watching. Now all the stuff that MTV airs is reality crap like Jersey Shore. TRL was back when MTV was at its peak. It showed the excess of the new millennium, and changed the way people requested music videos live forever.
