TRL: Total Request Live! TRL originated in 1998. It is still a very highly rated show on MTV where viewers around the country vote for the Top 10 Music Videos. After a video takes a run on the countdown for 50 days, it is "retired" from the show and is only shown again on special occasions. The videos used to stay on the countdown for 65 days, but then it changed to 50 days because a lot of videos never made it to 65 days. TRL has days where they replace artist's new videos with their old videos. They also sometimes have rival days where you can replace an artist's video with its rival's video. There are videos called 'On Deck' videos, which is a segment of videos 15-11 which just missed cracking into the Top 10. These videos used to be called 'Wannabes' but they wanted to show the exact placement of each video by specifying exactly where the video stands according to the number of votes it received.
