MTV Pulls the Plug on ‘TRL’

After ten years on the air, the show that thrust Carson Daly upon us will go off the air in November — considering ratings peaked in 1999, it's remarkable that they've waited this long to let the ol' girl go. But what of all the artists who have benefited from TRL's platform? "In a statement, Eminem said: 'I'm going to miss TRL … Where else will I be able to start feuds, defend my honor vigorously and act like an angry teenager on national TV? Oh wait … The VMAs!'" Well, at least that opportunity arises only once a year. [AP]
