Mike Judge is bringing back Beavis and Butthead, and now the pimpled metalheads will mock the lame MTV reality shows like Jersey Shore and 16 and Pregnant in addition to the music videos of yore. I’m intrigued by the new concept and curious to see the show revived. As Judge points out, reality shows are super fun to mock, and I feel that Beavis and Butthead has a weirdly timeless quality despite the dated music. The resurrection of Futurama has surely been satisfying, so I think this is a cool, potentially successful idea.
The show premieres tonight on MTV at 10/9c. You can read a great interview with Judge here. I’m curious if I’m alone here, or are you guys going to tune in?
