I suppose the other surprising thing I learned while researching this story was that MTV’s TRL is actually still on the air.
The music video show will conclude in a two-hour special on a Saturday afternoon in November, Dave Sirulnick, executive producer of “TRL,” said Monday. He stressed that the show wasn’t ending for good, but felt now was the right time to give it a break after an unprecedented run on the cable music channel.
For the finale, Sirulnick said he hopes to celebrate with many of the “folks who helped make `TRL’ what it is “” whether that’s Justin (Timberlake) and his guys in N’Sync, the Backstreet Boys, Britney, Eminem “” I think we would love to see all of them here.” That includes former host Carson Daly.
