    I loved the show, and Ken Ober was a great host. I watched it a lot, and even my parents put up with it. I even did a homemade version for some school thing once, though without the chairs that flipped backwards out of the studio, and we only had one TV for the bonus round instead of 9. Still, a worthy effort. I wonder how much of a hand he had in shaping the show.

    BUT...Remote Control was the beginning of the end. It was MTV's first non-music show; yeah, there were videos at the end, and 'Sing Along with Colin,' but it was really a game show about TV and pop culture. Then came The Real World. Then Road Rules. And now nobody even remembers what the letters 'MTV' stand for.

    The thing you have to remember is that wasn't the beginning of the end. MTV may have the word music in it, but really you add stuff like this, and it becomes an umbrella pop culture network, which is fine. The "reality" is what killed it.
