MTV Turns 36 — What Is Its All-Time Best Reality Show? (POLL)
“Ladies and gentlemen, rock and roll.”
On this day 36 years ago — August 1, 1981 — MTV hit the television dial with those words from co-creator John Lack.
Originally devoted to music videos (starting with The Buggles’ “Video Killed the Radio Star”), the cable TV destination has evolved and expanded to include shows dramatic and comedic, animated and live-action, scripted and unscripted.
We’re talkin’ ‘bout the network that gave us Carson Daly, Lauren Conrad, Funkmaster Flex, La La Anthony, Farrah Abraham, Johnny Knoxville, Tila Tequila, Daria, and Snooki. And though MTV has abandoned its music foundation, it’s still a fulcrum of pop culture conversation.
Now we have a task for you MTV fans. You gotta choose which of the following iconic reality shows is the very best. Vote for your choice below and see how you align with other viewers!
