MTV launching live afternoon show called 'The Seven'

It may not involve hordes of teenagers screaming over the top of 30-second snippets of popular videos — R.I.P. Total Request Live! — but MTV plans to get back into the business of live, after-school programming. On Sept. 27, the network will launch The Seven, a half-hour show focusing on seven stories about news, pop-culture, fashion, and sex targeted to the 12-to-24-year-old audience, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Seven, which will air at 5 p.m., will be hosted by Kevin Manno and Julie Alexandria, and also feature musical performances and interviews.

    I miss TRL. MTV needs to start representing its name again.

    I miss TRL. It’s def. pop culture. I understand that MTV is trying to recapture the essence of TRL, but I don’t think they can ever do that!

    This is a copy of a British show called “The 7pm Project”. It plays a bit like a morning news-and-guests show skewed to twentysomethings who never went to college. The hosts pal around on stage and chat up the news segments the audience is watching in a semi-scatological, semi-friendly manner. It’s supposed to be like dropping on an apartment full of interesting people.
