MTV plays videos?
It took a national tragedy, but it looks like their normal programming has been replaced with non-stop music videos without veejays
. That would be weird enough, but all the videos seem to be positively-themed
and spanning genres. They're occasionally breaking for original news reports and commercials.

I want my MTV.
There was a time when the only ads MTV showed were ads for the network itself. These are some of them. (from the U.K. so they might differ from the slate of ads run in the U.S.) Brings back many fond memories of the animated letters M, T, and V. (link courtesy of Saima)
Please proceed directly to "MTV used to show videos!" and then continue to more forced commiseration and remembrances of media conglomerate advertising as a substitute for a rich shared cultural heritage.
