While I'm for the return of Beavis & Butthead on MTV, I get the feeling the network that recently is better known for promoting teen momness across America is trying to figure out a way to screw the show up:
The new show, which debuts later this year, will be very familiar to fans of the Nineties original. "They'll be self-contained segments with the boys in different situations like they used to be," Toffler says. "But this time around, they'll watch Jersey Shore, UFC matches and user-generated videos from YouTube, in addition to music videos." All of the programming will be displayed on the duo's TV, even if it comes from YouTube — "like silly videos of cats playing music."
For me, I think Jersey Shore does a decent job of mocking itself, but I imagine MTV is a bit of a bind. Since they haven't shown videos in a decade or so, they don't probably have any sitting around to use. This is disappointing, mostly because the two animated morons were the best music critics around for awhile.
