I would actually bother watching MTV for this since it's with Alexa, except I don't like that it's supposed to be TRL like show. Will there be a screaming audience of teeny boppers?

Here's some info on it:

Quote:
Former T4 presenter Alexa Chung is to front her own live daytime show on MTV in the US, which is being billed as the successor to the trail-blazing TRL.The Alexa Chung Show will be one of the highlights of MTV's new season of programmes, announced as part of the broadcaster's Upfront presentation to advertisers in New York yesterday.
MTV said the new show would be similar to TRL, which was presented live from the channel's Times Square headquarters in New York by Carson Daly and featured a mix of video countdowns and guests. TRL ended its 10-year run in November.
Chung's show will feature partnerships with social networking sites Facebook and Twitter, with audiences encouraged to tweet their reaction to celebrities and music guests while the programme is on air.
The show will be produced by Reveille, which is owned by Elisabeth Murdoch's UK independent production company Shine, and will be executive produced by Tim Healy, Sebastian Scott, Howard T Owens and Mark Koops.

I was hoping it would be more fashion-oriented when I first heard about it. Who knows where they'll go with this though. I'll def check it out.

So MTV still actually shows music-related stuff? I thought all they had on there now was crappy reality TV shows.

This will be the only MTV show I will ever watch if MTV New Zealand gets it. It looks really promising.

It's not actually TRL and in my case assuming I don't get digital or satellite, I'm not going to have the channel anyway. Just in the last 2 days, I have more than 9 channels less thanks to the change to digital.

MTV revamped House of Style (http://www.mtv.com/ontv/dyn/house_of_style/series.jhtml) with Bar Rafaeli and Chanel Iman as hosts earlier this year. I think it would have been smart of them to have Alexa do a show focusing on fashion as well. It's not like they air any music videos on MTV anymore.
