No changes will be made to the title and no other changes will be made, including editing. The show still maintains much of the original “spirit” just done a bit differently. It’s now a live-to-tape show (a la David Letterman, Jon Stewart, etc), but it’s lacking the interactive element with online video voting. “We’re still committed to the show and it’s the cornerstone of the afternoon schedule,” said spokeswoman Marnie Black. “TRL is not the same show as it was when Carson Daly hosted it.
