MTV Live was a U.S. television series that aired from 1997 to 1998 on MTV, featuring interviews with celebrity guests, live musical performances, news coverage, and music video premieres.

Series run[edit]

The show began its run in September 1997 in the then-newly acquired Times Square Studio on Broadway in New York. Toby Amies, Carson Daly and Ananda Lewis served as resident hosts to the daily hour-long live broadcast until its eventual morph into Total Request on September 14, 1998, forming what is now known as Total Request Live.

New series[edit]

A separate show with the same title began airing on MTV in 2007. The current MTV Live is a recurring special event that features a condensed version of concerts made for television.
