This weekend was jam-packed on TV, what with the SAG Awards and the NFL Pro Bowl, but for a few us, we got a little nostalgic and flipped over to VH1 for their Rock Doc, The TRL Decade.

You see, many of us here at AMP Radio grew up watching our very own Carson Daly host MTV’s Total Request Live and we were curious to hear what he thought about last night’s special.

This morning, he weighed in on what it was like to be part of such a groundbreaking show and why TRL couldn’t be as successful in this day and age.

Carson was flipping back and forth between the SAG Awards and The TRL Decade and he was flattered by all of you who reached out to him on Twitter last night.

This morning on AMP RadioCarson got into why he thought TRL struck a chord with audiences. He explained:

I think like “American Bandstand” was for my parents’ generation in the 50s, “TRL” was the first sort of show where you got to see your peers on TV in Times Square. What they looked like, what they were wearing, the shout outs to their friends. It was a looking glass into your own small group of friends. It was very impactful to a lot of people and so, I think that’s cool.
