MTV Won’t Celebrate New Year’s Eve, Perhaps for the First Time in its History
Rather than celebrate New Year’s Eve with a live special, MTV will show a Ridiculousness marathon, interrupted at midnight by a six-minute Teen Wolf teaser. According to Variety, “MTV is believed to have aired New Year’s Eve-specific programming every year since its debut in 1981, when it carried the New Year’s Eve Rock ‘N’ Roll Ball.”
Jason Whitlock says Netflix’s true-crime documentary series shares similarities with HBO’s critically acclaimed The Wire. “David Simon’s Wire explored the predatory impact of unrestrained capitalism combined with a war on drugs loosed on one of America’s most economically vulnerable, black cities. The Wire told real-life fiction from a street perspective. (Making a Murderer) explores the predatory impact of unrestrained criminal-justice punishment loosed on an economically vulnerable, wrong-side-of-the-tracks white family. (Making a Murderer) is non-fiction told from a courtroom perspective.” PLUS: Making a Murderer outshines HBO’s The Jinx, and it’s true crime for an era (rightfully) skeptical of true crime.
