MTV Goes 'Us Weely'
TV Guide's Jeff Gemmill is concerned about where MTV is headed:
Still, there's a more immediate concern. When considering Newlyweds, Do Us Part, The Osbournes and upcoming reality shows centered on Hilary Duff and 7th Heaven star Ashlee Simpson (Jessica's little sister), MTV's slow metamorphosis into a Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous channel for Generations Y and Z is just about complete. (For further evidence, see Cribs.) In essence, what was arguably once the Rolling Stone of the airwaves is in danger of becoming the US Weekly of TV.
