MTV Networks's Acceptble.TV: Kenny Miller

“When watching isn’t enough, take control” at Acceptable.tv.

Viacom’s MTV Networks is continually exploring “digital programming innovation” to develop new ways to “be relevant to our audience.” Television is a fundamentally social medium: entertainment, connection, communication…On Demand is the biggest game changer.

Enter Acceptable.tv:

Whether you're here to WATCH, VOTE or CREATE, you're a part of a new thing. Acceptable.tv is a very simple show based on a very simple premise: namely, that some stuff is better than other stuff.


Instead of some crusty old television executive determining which of these pilots are worth watching, we're enlisting you (yes, YOU!) to determine which of these pilots deserve the right to be seen again and which get cancelled. Every Friday night on VH1, you'll WATCH one 30-minute episode that contains five 2.5 minute episodes of TV shows that WE made. In that same episode, you'll also get to see one mini-episode of a show YOU, the Acceptable.tv community.

Immediately following the episode, you can come to Acceptable.tv and VOTE for your two favorite pilots.

We’ve created 8 tutorials to help you figure out how to make really Acceptable TV. Watch, learn and then upload your video. Every week, our producers will review all of the submissions on the site. We’ll choose which are the MOST Acceptable of the bunch. From there, the audience will vote on our home page and the winner will show up on Friday night, on Acceptable.TV on VH1.
