Video may have killed the radio star but these 5 ought to be charged with killing the video star

1. The Monkees. If you're old enough to have at one time said "I want my MTV" or watched Night Tracks on TBS while you waited for your cable company to get hip, you may recall that MTV started showing repeats of The Monkees on an almost constant schedule in the mid-1980s. It was all downhill from there. Screw you Mickey Dolenz!
2. Madonna. You've been an annoying drain on society for more than 20 years. How many people stopped watching videos just to avoid seeing you?
3. Rappers. Yeah, you have lots of jewelry, drink Cristal, and occasionally hang out by the pool wearing banana hammocks but all of that is boring to watch. I mean the whole gun thing might have given you an edge for a while but . . .yawn.
4. The Real World. The first couple of seasons were interesting but this show is the progenitor of MTV's entire schedule of videotaped douchbags pretending to be real.
5. VH1. You started as MTV lite, took a detour through 200 episodes of Behind the Music, and now you're the network dedicated to whores and meatheads. I suppose you're back to be MTV lite again.
