This is great news for MTV. Going back to its roots, the revival of “TRL” (Total Request Live) is set to premiere on October 2nd. “The daily live show will air from the network’s iconic Times Square studio and become the prime destination for youth culture and a meeting point for millions of fans,” says the press release.
In order to include teen passion points, “TRL” will return with a twist. “The digital extensions will feature platform-specific, premium content across YouTube, Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram and Musical.ly,” MTV explains in the press release, and it will also continue to incorporate audience requests.
Carson Daly was the original host of “TRL,” but the revival will rotate a cast of 5 hosts including D.C. Young Fly, Erik Zachary, Amy Pham, Tamara Dhia and Lawrence Jackson.
