Bank Of America Backlash of the Day: Score 1 for the 99: Backlash from consumers has forced Bank of America to ditch its plan to charge a $5 monthly fee on debit card usage.

60 half-hour episodes have been ordered, and the show is set to end its 10-year hiatus in the fall. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show’s format “will remain faithful to the original concept,” with one important tweak: The addition of rap and hip-hop to the show’s rotation.
“Pop Up Video has stood the test of time, ranking as one of the most iconic series in recent television history,” VH1 president Tom Calderone said in a press release. “For years, people have practically begged, ‘Please bring back Pop Up Video!’ It’s a show and format that now evokes nostalgia for VH1’s young adult audience.”
