'120 Minutes' to reborn on MTV as '120 Seconds'



120-minutes.jpgJust when we all thought MTV had lost its mind and forgotten its roots, something potentially brilliant happens. 120 Minutes is set for a comeback, the network has announced.

The original 120 Minutes ran from 1986 to 2003, airing on MTV (and in its last years, on MTV2) and featured the alternative scene of music that rarely made it on during mainstream programs. The reimagined version will be a weekly webcast dubbed 120 Seconds.

While that might sound a little weak, here's the best news: Matt Pinfield is returning as host.

"People have been wanting for so long for the show to come back," says Pinfield. "I couldn't be more over the moon about it."

Look for the new 120 Seconds to debut this Friday on MTV Hive. (BTW, original episodes of 120 Minutes still appear late nights on VH1 Classic.)
