Welcome to The Basement, the most extensive Remote Control fan site on the internet.

Remote Control was a game show where college kids were tested on their knowledge of television, music, and pop culture that ran on MTV from December 7, 1987 through the summer of 1990. There was also a syndicated version that ran from September, 1989 through the summer of 1990. This version suffered from very poor time slots across the country, usually airing early weekend mornings on independent stations. Three home versions were also released during Remote Control's run.

Feel free to E-Mail me if you have anything to add, or if you were involved with the show in any way, I'd love to talk to you. Enjoy yourself!

Just about everything on this site belongs to MTV & Viacom, no challenges of copyrights are intended. I'm not trying to hijack the show, I just like it a lot.
