Thirty years ago this week, Video Hits One began offering the too-old-for-MTV crowd a sensible alternative. That channel would eventually grow into the entity we know today as VH1, and with that name, it would nail that pop culture nostalgia sweet spot with series like Behind the Music, VH1 Storytellers and more.
But above all the VH1 hits, it was Pop-Up Video that captured the hearts and minds of a certain kind of media-addled, know-it-all geek. The series first exploded in 1994, and our culture of nostalgia and trivia obsession has only grown stronger in the Internet age. With a hat tip towards VH1's big 3-0, People spoke with Woody Thompson, co-creator of Pop-Up Video, about how this landmark series came to be.

"Bye Felicia" originated in the movie Friday, when a disinterested Ice Cube utters the line to a character. The expression has since since become Internet shorthand for passive-aggressively (or occasionally aggressive-aggresively) letting someone know you don't actually care that they're leaving.
But we all have a Felicia inside, and that's where Deborah Hawkes, Missy Young and VH1 come in.

During the latest season of VH1's Couples Therapy, viewers have watched former Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis and girlfriend Nikki Ferrell struggle over how he expresses his affection. (Hint: He still hasn't said "I love you.")
But Jenn Berman, the no-nonsense psychotherapist behind the show, says they're coming along as a couple.
"Juan Pablo and Nikki have evolved through their therapy," she tells PEOPLE. "But there's more work to be done. There are some specific things about Juan Pablo that have caused him to hold back, but both he and Nikki open up more and more as they go through therapy."

Never say never!
When VH1 premiered its hit summer reality series Dating Naked in July, the concept – that luckless singles go on blind dates in the buff as a last ditch effort to find love – seemed hilariously far-fetched.
But despite one woman's mortifying experience on the show, another couple has proven the formula works.
After a date in May filled with naked surfing and deep conversation, 27-year-old artist Ashley Fonda fell hard for 36-year-old yoga instructor and self-proclaimed "sexual healer" Alika Medeiros.

From birthday suit to lawsuit.
Dating Naked cast member Jessie Nizewitz is suing VH1's parent company Viacom for breach of contract after the network aired uncensored au naturel footage of Nizewitz to shocked viewers of the titillating reality show.
The complaint, which was filed in Manhattan, also takes two production companies to task for broadcasting a clip in July during which a shot of Nizewitz's crotch was not blurred out.
