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.
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.
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.
