VH1 Classic Renaming to MTV Classic; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of August 1, 2016)

MTV Classic

MTV announced it will rebrand VH1 Classic as MTV Classic. MTV Classic will feature an eclectic mix of fan-favorite MTV series and music programming drawn from across its rich history, with a special focus on the 1990s and early 2000s. The rebrand takes effect on Monday, August 1 - 35 years to the day that MTV first debuted - at 6:00 a.m. when MTV Classic will air "MTV Hour One," MTV's first hour of programming from 1981. On Monday, August 1, MTV Classic will again re-air "MTV Hour One" at 12:00 p.m. ET before airing the Total Request Live retrospective The TRL Decade. Following will be a marathon of some of the most memorable episodes of MTV Unplugged - many of which haven't aired in years - including artists Bob Dylan, Alice In Chains, Erykah Badu, Oasis, Neil Young, Nirvana and more, that will lead into a primetime animated programming block including Daria, Beavis & Butt-head and Aeon Flux. "MTV Hour One" will also air on MTV's Facebook page via Facebook Live.

At launch, the network will feature primetime "from the vault" programming blocks Mondays through Thursdays from 10:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. that will include series such as Daria, Beavis & Butt-head, Aeon Flux, Run's House, Pimp My Ride, Cribs, Jackass, Punk'd, Wonder Showzen, Clone High and more. Every Friday, MTV Classic will feature classic music series in primetime including MTV Unplugged, Storytellers, live music performances and more. On the weekends, the network will serve up binge-worthy marathons of fan favorites including full seasons of The Real World, Laguna Beach, Road Rules and more. Additionally, MTV Classic will continue to run movies, concerts and music videos from the past that speak to the last three decades of music.
