I was gone over the weekend, so I missed it. Was it good or bad? I wouldn't have wasted my time if I was home watching it, so i decided to ask you.

Depends...

If you watched the web broadcast through AOL, then it was GREAT.

If you watched the MTV broadcast, then it was FUCKIN' AWFUL!

Agreed. Thank Goodness for AOL.

It was great and I got to see most of the acts in most of the cities in REAL time. No commercials. No editing. No cutaways.

Everyone I know who watched it on MTV or VH1 said it was shit coverage. All cutaways to jabbering DJ's, commercials. Mostly coverage (what little there even was), of only the Philly concert.

Oh..and AOL was Free! whether you have that as your ISP or not, to everyone, around the world.

MTV/VH1 cable you have to pay for obviously..and it still was crap.
