MTV's 'Decade': MTV, which was launched in 1981, will look back over the 1980s in "Decade," a two-hour retrospective which the cable network says is one of its most ambitious projects to date. The program will first air on Dec. 13 (9 p.m.), with repeats on Dec. 17 (2 p.m.) and Dec. 21 (9 p.m.). News clips, sound bites, film footage and interviews will bring back people and events, from Michael Jackson and Guns N' Roses to Chernobyl and the AIDS crisis.
