It looks like even MTV2 doesn’t want to show music videos anymore, either. They want to be a hipper VH1, I guess, just with (I bet) more eye-numbing graphics, quicker cuts, and grating music.
After producing the infamous Janet Jackson halftime show last year, MTV will launch a new look to its sister station, MTV2, during the Feb. 6 game break. MTV and MTV2 will both air a preview special of MTV2, featuring a combination of music, shows and random content aimed at young males. [...] MTV2, a network showing mostly videos since 1996, will launch a new format at midnight on Feb. 7. The new MTV2 is composed of music videos, new shows, graphics and random clips “that have been scoured from the Internet, old B-movies and the public service dustbin.”
