MTV’s “Total Request Live” will shut down in November, after 10 years on the air (and, in our opinion, about six years too late). “We want to close this era of ‘TRL’ in a big celebratory way, and 10 is a great number,” executive producer Dave Sirulnick said. “And 10 is the number that ‘TRL’ counted down every single day for 10 years, and we hit this 10th (anniversary) and we thought, ‘You know what? This feels like the right time and let’s celebrate it and let’s reward it. And let’s let it have a little bit of a rest for a minute.’ Let it catch its breath! Been working hard — for 10 years!”
