MTV CLASSICS REVIVED FOR PARAMOUNT+

Classic MTV and VH1 programs such as Behind the MusicYo! MTV Raps and Unplugged will be revived on ViacomCBS' streaming platform, Paramount+

ViacomCBS announced the relaunch of the iconic programs on Wednesday as it detailed Paramount+'s streaming options and content. 

"We are thrilled to reinvent some of our most storied and impactful music franchises, including Behind the Music and Yo! MTV Raps, for Paramount+," said ViacomCBS Music Prez Bruce Gillmer. "In addition, we will partner with some of the biggest names across the music industry to bring exclusive and unique content to the platform, such as Dave Grohl’s From Cradle to Stage, based on his mom's critically acclaimed book, and many more to come."

Unplugged aired a new episode this week featuring K-pop superstars BTS. Those performances are currently atop the YouTube trending-video chart.

Air dates for the Paramount+/MTV rollout have not yet been announced, but the Paramount+ app launches on 3/4, replacing CBS All Access

We're keeping our fingers crossed that MTV Spring Break episodes from the '90 aren't remastered; things got pleasantly blurry right before Limp Bizkit blew up that boat during "Nookie."
