Logo used from 1992 to 1996

The first logo for MuchMusic when it first began was a big M with Muchmusic boxed in the centre of the M. The logo was slightly redesigned as a big M with a small m inside the outline, with the word Muchmusic below the logo. In 1996, the current logo was designed with a black-and-white Much superimposed on a planet with longitude/latitude lines on the surface. The logo change was to portray MuchMusic as more modern and youthful. Image File history File links Muchmusic2. ... Image File history File links Muchmusic2. ...


Programming

Making use of CHUM's facilities and production teams, the channel has produced many specialty musical and variety programs, including the long-running dance program Electric Circus and the late-1980s game show Test Pattern, and it adopted some programs originally created for CHUM such as City Limits, which featured alternative videos. Electric Circus, aka EC, was a Canadian live dance music television program aired on MuchMusic and Citytv. ...

It has been credited with helping to foster a vibrant Canadian music scene because of the Canadian content broadcast rules which mandated native musical acts had a secure and prominent place on the channel's play schedule[citation needed]. As well, MuchMusic funds the creation of new Canadian music videos through VideoFACT and produces the popular album series Big Shiny Tunes and MuchDance.

As of 2007, MuchMusic has started to air a vast number of non-MuchMusic-related programs such as Girlicious, America's Best Dance Crew, The O.C., and BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad (ended its run on June 2007). These programs would often air repeated episodes to gain interest from viewers. The O.C. is an American teen drama television series that originally aired on FOX in the United States , and in Canada On CTV Television Network from August 5, 2003, to February 22, 2007, running a total of four seasons. ...


Controversy

It ran afoul of Canadian broadcast regulators in the early 1990s when it aired the animated series Ren and Stimpy; it was forced to take the program off the air on the basis that it was not a music-based program as per the network's licence. Image File history File links Question_book-3. ... Ren and Stimpy are the eponymous characters of two cartoon television series created by Canadian animator John Kricfalusi. ...


The network also generated controversy by occasionally banning videos it deemed too racy or violent for broadcast (MTV also weathered similar controversy). Often, the network would broadcast banned videos as part of a Too Much 4 Much special, followed by discussion with viewers and concerned groups about why the video should or shouldn't be aired (but rarely would videos be unbanned). On the flipside, the worst videos of the year would also be featured in annual New Year's specials entitled Fromage (French for "cheese"). Too Much 4 Much was a Canadian television series, which aired on MuchMusic. ... Fromage is an annual one-hour special produced by the Canadian MuchMusic cable channel. ... Cheese is a solid food made from the milk of cows, goats, sheep, and other mammals. ...


In recent years, particularly with the brief arrival of MTV on Canadian digital cable, the influence of MuchMusic has waned[citation needed], and the channel has had to weather criticism that it focuses too much on "top 40" acts and imported MTV "reality shows" like Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica and Pimp My Ride, thereby not giving enough time to smaller, independent, and Canadian performers. But 2005 saw the premiere of Video On Trial, which quickly became the network's highest-rated show while featuring Canadian comedians and personalities almost exclusively as music video "judges". A spin-off, Stars On Trial, featured popular VOT regular Ron Sparks as the judge and was the highest-rated special of the year (other than the annual MuchMusic Video Awards show). Stars on Trial now is its own show. This article is about the television show. ... Year 2005 (MMV) was a common year starting on Saturday (link displays full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ... Video on Trial (abbreviated as VOT) is a half-hour MuchMusic television program where a panel of musicians, comedians and entertainment columnists critique music videos. ...

Much has also been the centre of controversy because of its leniency in censorship. The channel often airs profane terms like "shit", "bitch" and sometimes even "fuck". Also MuchMusic sometimes doesn't censor middle fingers during shows such as VideoOnTrial, U Suck, and etc. This is its most contrasting feature against MTV, which goes great lengths in censoring music because Canadian media is generally more liberal in regards to censorship of obscenities or sexuality but more conservative with regards to violence.

Relationship with MTV

MuchMusic was launched in part to capitalize on the success of MTV, the American cable music channel that had premiered a few years earlier. Although never an affiliate, Much over the years would often broadcast MTV-produced programming such as awards shows, concerts, reality TV series and more. MTV itself was not permitted in Canada because of Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) restrictions on format protection. However, no such restrictions existed in the United States, where CHUM attempted to compete with MTV through MuchUSA (now the unaffiliated Fuse). This article is about the original U.S. music television channel. ... The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC, in French Conseil de la radiodiffusion et des télécommunications canadiennes) was established in 1968 by the Canadian Parliament to replace the Board of Broadcast Governors. ... MuchUSA was a 24-hour American music video television station co-owned by CHUM Limited and Rainbow Media Holdings Inc. ... Fuse is a music television network like MTV, formerly called MuchMusic USA until it was sold in early 2003. ...


Perhaps owing to this, MTV was unwilling to extend its relationship with MuchMusic longer than necessary, and has made two attempts to launch a competing MTV channel in Canada. The first attempt began in 2001 when MTV Canada was launched by Craig Media and Viacom. MTV Canada had an edge over MuchMusic in that it was licensed by the CRTC as a broadly based teen channel and could air programming from various categories not just music related. In 2004, MTV Canada's owners were bought by CHUM, allowing Viacom to exit its contract with Craig, and stripped MTV programming and branding from the channel forcing Viacom to find another partner to bring MTV to Canada. Razer is a Canadian category 1 digital cable specialty channel, that describes itself as a young adult-controlled entertainment and information community, supporting what matters to young adults. It debuted in its present form on June 30, 2005, replacing the Craig Media incarnation of MTV Canada (another channel, owned by... Craig Media Inc. ... Viacom (NYSE: VIA) (NYSE: VIAb) is an American media conglomerate with various worldwide interests in cable and satellite television networks (MTV Networks and BET), and movie production and distribution (the Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks movie studios). ...


The next attempt began in 2006 when Viacom partnered with CTV to rebrand its low rated specialty channel talktv as MTV. With the new launch of MTV in March 2006, MuchMusic lost all rights to MTV programming from that point forward.


Since the acquisition of CHUM Limited (which includes MuchMusic and MuchMoreMusic) by CTVglobemedia, MTV and MuchMusic have technically been under the same ownership since June 2007. CTVglobemedia has announced that they plan on maintaining all CHUM's specialty channels including both MuchMusic and MTV. Currently both CTVglobemedia and Viacom have no plans on disaffiliating either channel from its programming and/or branding. In fact, MuchMusic and MTV have even begun airing each other's promo ads (ex. MuchMusic airing a promo for MTV's The Hills).


Affiliated channels

VJs

Every year or so, when new video jockeys are needed, Much will run a "VJ Search" to pick one new VJ to join the team of VJs. They will usually visit cities across Canada and pick people who appear to show potential through their audition. In earlier years, the VJ Search was usually a two-part show, but in 2006 it evolved into its own reality series. Video Jockey or VJ is a term coined in the early 1980s to describe the fresh faced youth who introduced the music videos on MTV. The word VJ is also used to represent video performance artists who create live visuals on all kind of music. ... Spoiler warning: VJ Search is the title of a reality television program aired on Canadian music video tv station MuchMusic. ...


Despite the popularity of the VJ Search, most VJs are still hired by Much directly, without being VJ Search contestants.

MuchMusic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (976 words)
MuchMusic (often called Much) is a 24-hour national Canadian cable music and variety television channel based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, which debuted on August 31, 1984 as one of the first Canadian cable specialty channels on the air.
The first logo for MuchMusic when it first began was a big M with Muchmusic boxed in the centre of the M. In 1992, the logo was slightly redesigned as a big M with a small m inside the outline, with the word Muchmusic below the logo.
MuchMusic was launched in part to capitalize on the success of MTV, the American cable music channel that had premiered a few years earlier.
