"MTV Producing Halftime Show for Super Bowl

Corporate synergy is paying off for MTV.

The cable music network will produce the halftime show for the 2004 Super Bowl airing on CBS. Both MTV and CBS are owned by Viacom.

MTV produced the halftime show for the 2001 Super Bowl, which also aired on CBS and featured Aerosmith, 'N Sync, Britney Spears, Nelly and Mary J. Blige.

"We plan on even more unexpected music performances ... that will go down in halftime history," Van Toffler, president of MTV and MTV2, said in a statement Monday. The performers weren't announced.

America Online is the halftime sponsor.

The Super Bowl will be Feb. 1 in Houston."


--------------------------
Maybe it was just me, but I was NOT a fan of the last half time show by MTV. I hate to think about what MTV will try to pull of this year.

This guarantees I'll be watching something else during halftime.

The Lingerie Bowl is the greatest money-making idea I've heard in a long time. What living room full of moderately drunk football fans won't come up with twenty bucks to watch that, especially if MTV throws together another halftime with acts like N'Sync.

"We plan on even more unexpected music performances" What, are their lips actually going to be in sync with the vocals... "that will go down in halftime history," Going down in history doesn't nessesary mean it's good news

It went down in history, all right... and you're dead on that it wasn't good news. This was the Super Bowl that featured "Nipplegate".

For my part, I never once believed the garbage about how Janet Jackson's costume wasn't supposed to come apart like that; that it was a wardrobe malfunction. Timberlake freakin' sang the lyrics "Gonna have you naked by the end of this song" right before tearing it, after all!

If there was ever a year to bring back WWE Halftime Heat, then BAH GAWD, this is the year to do it.

I would love to hear nothing but boos after MTV's Halftime Suckfest concludes, but we know that won't happen (except in Philadelphia).

I thought I heard in the Big Finish on PTI that Outkast was going to be on the show. On the other hand, I'd been awake for all of about four minutes, and it may have been completely unrelated.

The problem here is that the format for the Lingerie Bowl is going to change this year. The girls will have pads on now. It was a good idea, but for whatever reason, it is being diluted worse than the UFC was back in the nineties.

Seeing how they are all part of one big happy Viacom family I doubt we'll be getting half time heat. I certainly wouldn't mind it

Am I the only one who doesn't mind?

I mean if I don't like the acts, then I'll go make myself a sandwich, grab a drink, find some other halftime programming. MTV booking the halftime show just ensures that there will be popular artists performing which will satisfy the greatest amount of the audience (and damn them for doing that!). It's not like they're going to book Radiohead or Flaming Lips because they want to attract the snooty record buyer to watch the halftime show. Besides, if you turn it off for TOO long, you'll miss the ads. And that's why we all watch anyway...Right?

If I were doing things, I would give half-time to ONE act, and just let them do their thing for 30 minutes. But for whatever reason, it has to be a halftime "extravaganza", which apparently means lots of cheesy props, lots of cheesy dancers (at least half of which must be kids), etc. And apparently more acts = "amazing" performance, particularily if they are from different genres.

But such as it is, MTV may as well book it. It sure beats Earth, Wind, and Fire!
