The New York Times TV Decoder is reporting that MTV has cancelled the once very popular show "Total Request Live." The top-ten countdown for music videos, has been on the air for ten years now. Dave Sirulnick, the executive producer of TRL told the Associated Press that it feels like the right time to pause in order to celebrate and reward the last ten years.

"TRL" peaked just a year after it debuted with 757,000 people viewing the show daily, according to Nielson ratings. Ever since, the show has been losing ground slowly. MTV claims that the show is not permanently eliminated but just taking a breather.

Many current famous celerities got their first exposure on "TRL." Now, the television show is hoping that the same celebrities that helped make TRL a hit will come back for the final 2-hour special. The last show will air in November.
