Despite multiple online reports and headlines, MTV says “TRL” has NOT been canceled.
Actually, the network claims the show is thriving and they are planning to expand the franchise.
MTV president Chris McCarthy told the Hollywood Reporter that the show will air three times a day.
It’s thriving. We’re expanding the franchise and will have three TRLs by summer.
TRL has delivered incredible growth on linear, and we’ve experienced two to three times the growth in our video streams, and TRL is big piece of it — and that’s why we’re expanding it; we want more.
Welp…we gone see!
