TV Shows We're Most Thankful For

by AOL TV Staff, posted Nov 21st 2011 10:30AM
HomelandWe're thankful for a lot of things, but we're all about TV around here, and so is this list. Yes, it's time once again for the annual staff picks for TV Shows We're Most Thankful For.

There's plenty to choose from -- and obviously we had to narrow it down quite a bit -- but each of us has decided on one show that makes weekly viewing and analysis fun and worthwhile, for whatever reason.

Some of us appreciate a good laugh above all, some put dramas on a pedestal, and others are into vampire dramas with a hint of Somerhalder. You get the idea.

Take a peek at our quick list, then please share your own show that makes you thankful in the comments. Gobble gobble!

Reviews: 'Allen Gregory' Disappoints But 'Beavis and Butt-Head' Rock Their Return

by Maureen Ryan, posted Oct 27th 2011 1:30PM
MTV has produced a lot of iconic images over the years, but when it comes to audio, its finest achievement may be a pair of unmistakable giggles.

'Beavis and Butt-head' (10PM ET Thursday, MTV) and their instantly recognizable "heheh hehehes" are back, but the news that Mike Judge and the network were resuscitating the slacker duo was a little scary when it emerged last year.

I have many fond memories of the way Beavis and Butt-head fearlessly and sophomorically commented on the overblown music videos and pop-culture icons of the '90s, but in a few years, I'll be exiting television's most desirable demographic, and I probably left MTV's a decade or two ago. Would new-school Beavis and Butt-head have relevance for those unfamiliar with their breathy giggles or would the show return as a musty and ultimately irrelevant museum piece aimed at the nostalgia crowd?

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 26th 2011 3:30AM
Snooki, 'Beavis and Butt-head' - 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Beavis and Butt-head took over the 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC) set so they could hijack Kimmel's scheduled interview with Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi of 'Jersey Shore.'

It was a cute skit, with Snooki gamely playing along as Butt-head, all decked out in a suit and sitting in Kimmel's chair, asked if she was DTF. At one point, Beavis, who was producing, held up a sign reading 'Talk About Boobs.'

"I had a question about your boobs," Butt-head said. When she asked what about them, he responded, "They're big."

'Beavis and Butt-Head' are Back! And They're Watching 'Jersey Shore' (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jul 22nd 2011 7:20AM
Beavis and Butt HeadAOL TV first reported back in February that 'Beavis and Butt-Head' is returning to TV screens in the fall after a 14-year absence. (Did you did you really have to make us wait so long, Mike Judge?)

And just because the two snarky slackers have been away doesn't mean they've missed out on anything. Relative newbie -- and MTV stablemate -- 'Jersey Shore' comes in for some of their trademark commentary.

Creator Mike Judge told 'Entertainment Weekly' that "['Jersey Shore'] felt like pay-dirt to me. I hadn't seen it. I started watching the DVDs. I don't feel good after watching it, but I kept watching it. They're also watching UFC fights."

Catch the five-minute first look at the return of Beavis and Butt-Head after the jump.

'Beavis and Butt-head' Returning to MTV

by Kelly Woo, posted Feb 3rd 2011 1:20PM
Beavis and ButtheadUh huh-huh huh ... 'Beavis and Butt-head' are making a comeback! MTV announced that the iconic '90s animated series will be returning to MTV with all-new episodes

The cult hit, created by Mike Judge ('Office Space,' 'King of the Hill'), ran for 200 episodes from 1993–97, and produced a spin-off ('Daria') and a movie ('Beavis and Butthead Do America').

Rumors about the show's return began circulating after the characters made a cameo in 'Jackass 3D.' MTV hasn't set a premiere date yet, though it did say it would happen this summer. The network also announced that the new show 'Teen Wolf' would debut on June 5.

When the series returns, the two metal-loving slackers will still issue snarky commentary, but instead of watching terrible grunge music videos, Beavis and Butt-head will take on more contemporary acts.

Five of the Creepiest Real Life Versions of Famous Cartoons

by Danny Gallagher, posted Apr 15th 2010 6:03PM
The real life Mr. GarrisonIn TV, there are two distinct worlds: our world and the cartoon world. So far, we've gotten along pretty well because, for the most part, cartoons have kept their animated butts in their world.

We don't allow it to happen very often because when cartoons try to invade the real world on those rare occasions, the transference is nightmarish. Their distorted animated features and expressions can make 'Eraserhead' look like an Olson Twins movie.

Here are five of the creepiest looking and sounding real life cartoon crossovers that will have you bleaching your brain with the magic of Clorox 2.

Beavis and Butt-Head are back!

by Mike Moody, posted Sep 2nd 2009 12:34PM
Thank you, Mike Judge. I really needed a pick-me-up after watching that depressing video of Soleil Moon Frye dressing up like Punky Brewster to celebrate 1,000,000 Twitter followers. And this video of Beavis and Butt-Head promoting your new movie, Extract, did the trick.



Ah, "Master Bateman!" Sometimes it's the simple things that help you get through the day.

Mike Judge: The TV Squad Interview

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Jul 29th 2009 11:02AM
Mike Judge admits that ABC might not have been the best home for The Goode Family.Mike Judge doesn't strike anyone as the kind of guy who's created a legendary animated duo and a cult hit movie. And, you certainly wouldn't size him up as a creative mind with two active series on first-run network TV.

The native-Texan is just too unassuming, soft-spoken and self-deprecating to show up at Comic-Con International last week to discuss TV's The Goode Family and King of the Hill alongside his new feature film, Extract.

But there he was in Press Room 28e, preparing for his panel and eyeing the Mythbusters Comic-Con bag I'd just picked up on the convention floor.

"I've got to get me one of those bags before I go out there," Judge said.

On behalf of a grateful TV Squad nation, I offered him mine. He accepted the bag graciously. Then we begin the interview.

Sneak Peek: Mike Judge's The Goode Family

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 30th 2009 5:02PM
I have to say that even though this trailer for Mike Judge's new (May 27) ABC animated show The Goode Family looks funnier than other recent animated shows, it also features a bunch of characters I just want to punch in the face. I know people like this, and I don't know if I can get though an episode of the show without hating the people I'm probably supposed to be rooting for (I sense these people are probably the type that don't flush their toilets more than a few times a week - gah). I think Brian Doyle Murray's curmudgeonly, un-PC character might be my favorite character on the show.

We know, we know ... another "best of" list.

But this isn't any old list – our Top 40 TV Shows of the '90s is just the first in a new series of countdowns in which we'll put our AOL Television seal of approval on the top 40 series of every decade.

Every other month we'll tackle another decade, going all the way back to the '50s, to recall the best comedies (hello 'Lucy'), the best prime-time soaps (do you remember who shot JR?), the best cop shows, animated series and groundbreaking TV shows.

So kick off 50 years of silver-screen bests with the greatest shows of the '90s, including everyone from 'Beavis,' 'Buffy' and 'Simpsons' to 'Freaks and Geeks' and teens on the 'Creek.'

The best videos Beavis and Butt-Head watched

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 12th 2006 8:56AM

beavis and buttheadOur fearless editor Keith hepped us bloggers to a piece in Stuff Magazine listing the best videos Beavis and Butt-Head ever watched. I'm glad he did, because I sure as hell wouldn't have read Stuff voluntarily. The piece also has links to YouTube clips of Beavis and Butt-Head providing their running commentary for videos by Pantera, Suicidal Tendencies, Gwar and Crowbar, among others. What, no "Punk Rock Girl" by the Dead Milkmen? No "Push the Little Daisies" by Ween? No "Elvis is Everywhere" by Mojo Nixon? Well anyway, if you're bummed out by the fact that the DVD releases don't include these little music video gems, the piece is worth checking out. Though I must admit when I watched Beavis and Butt-Head in high school I always wanted them to hurry up and get through the videos and back to the main story. Some of their commentaries were funny, but mostly it just felt like filler.
