Genre: Music, Alternative
Premise: Music fans who preferred an alternative to mainstream artists found a comfort zone on ``120 Minutes,'' MTV's weekly ode to the unusual and offbeat tunes never heard on formulaic radio. Its eight-year run ended in 2003, a victim of the network's move to more reality-based programming. But, incredibly, there's still a place for music on MTV, and nearly a decade later, this revival of ``120 Minutes'' is glorious music to the ears of its many fans. Now on MTV2, the series features the return of original and iconic host Matt Pinfield and a familiar format -- plenty of videos from both established and new indie acts, shining a spotlight on the likes of Beady Eye, The Kills, Mumford & Sons, Alabama Shakes, Death Cab for Cutie, Lupe Fiasco and Grouplove.
