MTV’s Total Request Live is making a comeback! According to MTV president Chris McCarthy, TRL will be revived this October.
The music video countdown show, which was once a prime staple for the network, ran from 1998 to 2008. Along with music videos, TRL featured appearances by musicians, actors and other celebrities to promote their latest works. It will once again be broadcast live (of course) from Times Square.
Original host Carson Daly, who left in 2003, will not return for the revival. Instead, the show will feature five new hosts in rotation, including rapper/comedian DC Young Fly and radio host Erik Zachary.
