When I learned we were getting MHD I was disappointed and infuriated that out of all the compelling HD content out there Time Warner was giving us crap like TRL, Real World, Pimp My Mom and Date My Car in HD. I may be 21 years old, but this garbage does not appeal to me at all. I couldn't have been more wrong, MHD is probably now my most watched HD channel behind CBS HD. The concerts are great, I'm watching local boys, Goo Goo Dolls in concert right now. The John Fogarty special was great and VH1 Rock Honors was incredible. I never thought I'd hear real music on an MTV branded channel.
I have no idea what MTV was like way back when, I was too young, but I've seen VH1, MTV2, CMT and now VH1 Classic turn from gold to garbage, getting away from music and appealing to the 13 year old girl and college horndog demo and frankly it sucks. MHD is GREAT a little more content would be nice, but if repeats of current programming, me culture' (or whatever they're called) shows, I'm all for it.
