Oh Uncut, you are missed! I didn’t do a proper eulogy for you when you first went off the air, but now I am finally ready to give you the tribute you so rightly deserve. For those who have no idea what I’m talking about, Uncut was BET’s very late night music video program that featured a host of unknown artists with sex driven music videos and even a few well known artists who, in the end, made a video or two specifically for the program (thank you Luda and Nelly!). It was on from 3AM – 4AM Thursday / Friday / Saturday and could be considered successful being that it became quite the underground phenomenon despite its late night time slot (Nielsen ratings had 300,000 a night watching it). The videos, which had extremely small budgets but booties large enough to fill a high-def big screen (man, Uncut in high-def, a dream that will never be realized) were the hook and now that the show is no longer airing (its last episode was over the summer. I nearly threw my TV out the window the first time I turned to BET at 3AM and saw they were airing Girlfriends instead) we can officially call those videos LEGENDARY.
