It looks like MTV’s classic video countdown show TRL (Total Request Live) will be making its way back to our televisions this fall.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, MTV president Chris McCarthy announced he would be bringing back the show, with hopes of reviving the network’s ratings.
The show, which ran from 1998-2008, helped launch the careers of so many well-known personalities such as Carson Daly, Lala Anthony, Vanessa Lachey, Susie Castillo and many others.
The revival will feature five co-hosts, which includes comedian DC Young Fly and Chicago radio host Erik Zachary. Additional hosts for the show will be announced as MTV is still in negotiations with other personalities.
The hour-long show is expected to return in October from a new state-of-the-art studio that is being constructed in the heart of New York’s Times Square. The new studio will be located right behind the Viacom building where MTV’s east coast offices are located.
Roommates, are you here for the revival of TRL?
