After beginning as a show that featured performances, interviews, stories on musicians, and focused on music, the show has become dedicated to focusing on its hosts, with little musical content. The show has become more of variety style comedy show, including the introduction of new "internet style" skits. The show now sometimes features live musical performances by a variety of artists of different genres and success levels, though is decidedly committed to being a 26 minute show on what the hosts do and think.
MTV Live broadcasts from the Masonic Temple in Toronto.
MTV Live airs Monday through Thursday at 6 pm and 11 pm ET.
The show won the 2008 Gemini Award for "Best Talk Series".
