But wait, there's more.

There's just no polite way to say "Buy me things", is there?

In which our plucky young hero fights cliches wherever he finds them.

I think it is time for a minor public service for the little media critics among us.

MTV, as can be seen on this convenient weekly schedule grid, normally plays about 40 hours a week of programming explicitly labeled "Music Videos" and/or "MTV After Hours" (aka. music videos at night) and/or "MTV Video Wake-Up" (aka. music videos in the morning). This figure does not count any videos that may be seen during programs that have different titles, like TRL, or that thing Moby does; the actual amount is slightly higher than 40 hours a week.

Now that you know this, your criticisms of MTV can be much sharper, much more concise, and much better-informed. Also, you can stop sounding like a whiny idiot who can't be bothered to look at a TV schedule. May I suggest that your next rant begin "MTV schedules its music videos for inconvenient time slots, such as 10 to 1 on Tuesday mornings"? It's perhaps not as emotionally fulfilling, but really, wouldn't you rather be right than angry?

No, no, there's no need to thank me. Your higher level of discourse is reward enough.
