"Beavis and Butthead" Premiere Kicks Butt

Just when we all thought MTV's program line-up hit rock bottom, Mike Judge's Beavis and Butthead was said to come back on the air.  Alongside their line-up of "reality" television, pregnancy shows, people hurting themselves, and let's not forget their newest edition of "kids getting arrested," MUSIC Television has seemingly been one of the worst networks on television to most of us.  But that is all about to change.

Beavis and Butthead premiered last night.  Heh heh, cool!  We were so excited to see our favorite TV-watching do-nothing duo and their amazing logic take over the current world.  I mean, who else is really going to talk about the horror that is Twilight?  

The show started out with a plot that is reminiscent of the days when MTV was good.  We have our classic pair watching the Twilight movie, talking about how ridiculous it is that women are into that "crap."  They decide to go out and get bitten by a werewolf to become one.  However, they mistake a hepatitis-having homeless crazy man for their werewolf and pay him to bite them.  The best part is they paid him in gum.

They then spend the rest of the episode with sores and looking super pale, still trying to score. The next episode showed them watching "The Bachelor" and eating chili dogs.  Beavis accidentally smells an onion and starts to cry.  Butthead continually calls him out for being "moved to tears" and keeps it up for YEARS.  Even when they were shown in their 80s, Beavis is still getting pissed and Butthead still messes with him.

The best part, however, is that they showed MUSIC VIDEOS.  It's hard to believe that MTV allowed them to play some type of music.  It almost seems that MTV finds that people don't like music anymore.  Don't you wish music videos had their artistic respect they used to have?  Hopefully our two dimwitted critics can bring back that art form.

Overall, Thursday, October 27, 2011 marked an important day in the world of television.  We get back the most important people of the 90s.  You know, the boys who helped make or break artists.  The ones who had such an impact that people still talk about them almost 20 years after first coming on TV.  It's hilarious, well thought-out, and really sticks to its roots.  I'm sorry, I mean OUR roots.  Here's a sneak peek at next week:

How'd you like their solid return?

Heh heh, we said solid.
