Talk about a blast from the past. Get ready to be thrown right back to high school! According to the New York Times, MTV is bringing back ‘Total Requests Live’ or ‘TRL’. Apparently over the past few years ratings for MTV have absolutely nose dived. I can’t say that I’m shocked by this as personally I think a lot of their programming is garbage (like did we really need another ‘Teen Mom’ spin off?). In interview with the New York Times now MTV president Chris McCarthy confirmed that bringing ‘TRL’ back will be a big part of the efforts to reinvigorate the channel. He confirmed with them that the show will return in October and the old studio is currently under renovations.

‘TRL’ ran from 1998 to 2008 and for some of us was a big part of our youth.

Let’s reminisce, shall we?
