MTV News has learned that the network’s “The View” will premiere a new show next Wednesday that could change the way we watch television.
The show will be a collaboration between the creators of the popular online news and talk show, and will explore topics such as how people watch television, what’s happening with content on social media and the way in which entertainment news is presented in the U.S. The show will premiere at 9 p.m.
ET/PT on Wednesday, Feb. 26, according to MTV.
The new series will air on MTV’s sister cable network MTV2.
MTV2 also has two other shows scheduled for next week, one of which will be titled “The Unforgettable Fire” and will be based on the true story of an all-American fire captain who became an advocate for firefighters after his colleagues killed a teenager.
That show, which will air at 10 p.c.
ET on Wednesday on MTV2, will be directed by “The Daily Show” creator Jon Stewart.
The other show, called “The Nightly Show,” will air the following week on MTV.
MTV said it plans to air both shows at the same time.
The announcement comes amid a renewed focus on TV news, particularly on how it is presented.
The rise of cable channels like “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” has made the traditional, high-profile news channels obsolete, and the proliferation of online and social media has led to more viewers and listeners.TV networks have been trying to find ways to keep audiences engaged, while also giving the networks a bigger platform to deliver news and entertainment.
Earlier this year, CBS said it would stream all of its prime-time programming on digital platforms, including “The Colbert Report,” “The Blacklist,” “60 Minutes,” “CBS Evening News” and “CBS Sunday Morning.”
