Favorite countdown show: '106 & Park' or 'TRL'?

Back in the good ol' days—AKA the early 2000s—when you wanted to see the hottest new music video, "106 & Park" and "Total Request Live" were the quintessential programs. BET's "106 & Park" debuted in 2000 and almost 20 years later it remains one of BET's most coveted shows. MTV first aired "TRL" in 1998 and recently tried to reboot the program but it just couldn't live up to its glory days. Which show did you run home from school to watch?
