Oscarweb Round-up: Huh-huh, huh, huh-huh

Posted by · 8:34 am · October 27th, 2011

Okay, this is not Oscar related. At all. In the slightest. Though maybe it should be. I’m in the tank for “Beavis and Butt-Head.” Always have been. Always will be. So you can bet I’ll be parked in front of the tube tonight when MTV finally brings the dummy duo back for a new wave of original programming. I’ve been stoked ever since the announcement was made. And the material that has been released so far, well, it has me in the aisles. And I’ll probably even check out the new show that will follow, “Good Vibes.” It’s nice that the network is at least testing the waters of stuff that isn’t wall-to-wall reality programming. With that in mind, Kimberly Potts offers up 14 great Beavis and Butt-Head moments to welcome them back. [The Box]
