    Default 120 minutes.

    NEW YORK (AP) - One of MTV's iconic programs, the defunct "120 Minutes," is returning.

    The network will announce Thursday that "120 Minutes" is coming back as a monthly show on MTV2 and as a weekly webcast, which has been dubbed "120 Seconds."

    Matt Pinfield, the VJ most identified with the original show, 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."

    The original "120 Minutes" ran from 1986 to 2003, airing on MTV, and in its last years, on MTV2. The new incarnation will similarly include interviews, performances and music videos, along with increased fan interaction.

    Amy Doyle, executive vice president of music and talent at MTV, says the network wanted a multi-screen showcase for emerging music and found there's still an affinity for "120 Minutes."

    "Why create a whole new franchise when we have one that means something still?" Doyle says. "Instead, let's dust it off and modernize it."

    The brief, online "120 Seconds" will premiere Friday on MTV Hive, a recently launched online music destination. The broadcast "120 Minutes" will premiere later this year, though Doyle says she expects that to be "sooner rather than later."

    Much of the original appeal of "120 Minutes" had to do with its era of music, particularly the then-thriving alternative rock and metal scenes. As a host for four years, Pinfield distinguished himself as an earnest and thoroughly knowledgeable interviewer.

    Since "120 Minutes," Pinfield, 44, has hosted a number of music programs, including VH1's "VSpot Top 20 Countdown" and HDNet's "Soundoff With Matt Pinfield." He currently hosts a show for New York radio station WRXP, which he will continue to do, shifting from mornings to afternoons.

    He says "120 Minutes" will highlight "a very broad base of independent and alternative rock."

    "There's more new bands and good music coming out than ever," says Pinfield. "There's so much to be found."

    They tried this before. It was called Subterranean, and no one watched it.

    I loved 120 Minutes when I was a kid.
    But 120 Minutes was also necessary when I was a kid.

    It's on MTV2...no one watches that shit, and no one is gonna care about this returning. No one even watches tv for music anymore, people can just go to YouTube.

    I used to watch Subterranean, but I thought it started going downhill around 2008.

    I remember how 120 minutes used to debut music videos for bands that I loved back then (and now). Anyone here saw the show back in '97 when they premiered "Paranoid Android" from a little band call radiohead..

    I actually think this is lovely news. Yeah, we have YT and thousands of blogs and that sort of freedom is great, but it's also nice to have something tastefully curated. Matt Pinfield will do an ace job.

    I want to say subterranean and 120 minutes may have been the most influential cock teases that caused music lovers to go out and illegally rape artists discographies.

    It seemed like an hour and forty minutes to hear only hear twenty minutes of music and one of them was always run during the ending credits.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Do you guys know of anywhere that has old episodes of AMP?
    Hunting has been part of our society since the first Europeans came over and shot buffalo and Native Americans and whatnot.
