I'm Single Because of MTV by Jerome Hudson 8 Feb 2013 post a comment Share This: In response to Friday Night Question: Lisa, I'm old enough to remember when MTV actually played music. These days, I can't enjoy any of their programming. Of the three networks you mentioned, MTV has betrayed it's brand the most. I mean, Tila Tequila? Yo Mamma? Date My Mom? Yikes!!! I used to watch those lame shows. No wonder I'm single.
