Here’s the full text of the press release as published on the MTV Press website.
MTV’s recently resurrected alternative music series, 120 Minutes, is tentatively set to premiere on MTV2 the last Saturday night in July, according to returning host Matt Pinfield.

MTV announced it will resurrect the legendary alternative music video series, 120 Minutes, and bring back its most recognizable host, Matt Pinfield, for another run.

It will be joined by a new weekly web feature, 120 Seconds.
