1 To Stephanie ...I'm sorry, but it's bad enough that I had to accept Michael Jackson not being voted as #1 musical artist by VH1 (despite being a phenomenal artist and entertainer from the WOMB, who reached people across the PLANET as no other artist could - including in Africa) ..but he can't even receive his props in death - IMO, Michael Jackson's death was more SHOCKING to the WORLD (not just the Western World) than John Lennon's death - and that's not to play down the impact of Lennon's death. But anyways, I accepted when Vh1, initially, steered in that non-music direction, w/ specials like "I Love the 80s" ..and even the initial Surreal Life & Flavor of Love shows were quite entertaining (at least New York and Flavor had charisma, unlike these airheads, today, on these "reality" shows, i.e., Bad Girls Club & Desperate Ho-wives, who think that just by arguing and fighting, they are being entertaining)..but what made VH1 bone more, for me, was when they started having these lists based on "viewer polls" (what viewers?) and Maxim mag, instead of putting together lists like they used to, gathering info from radio disc jockeys (from various type stations), club DJs, billboard charts and artists, themselves ...and they'd have these shallow lists, meant to put down a person's self-esteem, listing the same damn people over and over (100 Hottest Hotties) :rolleyes: -- Submitted By: (Lashid4u) on February 26, 2013, 7:31 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

4 @ Stephanie. I concur, and a lot of those "shocking moments" listed more raised "so what". VH1 needs to diversify music as well and focus less on being "cool" to the new generation. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on May 6, 2010, 5:20 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 VH-1 sadly, has turned into another banal, trendy network with reality shows and the like. Even their latest "countdown" show: "100 Most Shocking Musical Moments" was ridiculous. They left out moments such as the plane crash of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper, the death of John Bonham, the death of Keith Moon and a number of other great artists who were taken from us too soon, yet mention Chris Brown and Rhianna's fight as "shocking"? Puhleeze. And then, the assassination of John Lennon was only #2? Really? I don't know of any other incident in musical history that was more shocking than December 8, 1980. -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on January 4, 2010, 11:35 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Pop-up video was my favorite show. Behind the Music was good until they started showing bands that were new and had no problems at all. Then they boned about 2005 with Fabulous Life Of, Best Week Ever, and all those reality shows. The last vestige of the old VH1 is when they show the I love the 70s, 80s, and 90s specials. At least they discuss music on those. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on November 15, 2009, 12:32 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 http://www.petitiononline.com/kidsafe/petition.html Hey, check out signature #6978 on this petition asking to clean up in-flight movies. She has a point - the stuff shown on VH1 really is "lurid" and "obscene"! 99.9% of the stuff on this station appears to be reality (most of which everyone will forget in half the time) - and nothing else! Thank goodness everyone (like me) has the option to cancel their cable and go ANTENNA!!!!! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on November 14, 2009, 7:00 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 VH1 used to be innovative. Unlike MTV, it's regular programs actually related to music - whether behind the scenes of videos, behind the music, or old movies with musical themes. Then the videos dropped -- enter MTV's twin. -- Submitted By: (ocfernan) on October 2, 2009, 6:20 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 I agree about it boning when it jumped onto the reality show bandwagon but does anyone else remember when it started out with veejays such as Don Imus and Rosie O'Donnell (before we found out what they were REALLY like)? Man, the green room convos between those two must have been something else! LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 3, 2009, 11:25 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 VH1 needed reality shows all the time like Joan Collins needed plastic surgery. -- Submitted By: (JamesCraven) on April 29, 2009, 8:49 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
