'Good Vibes' - 'Pilot'Paired up with the return of 'Beavis and Butt-Head' is the new animated series 'Good Vibes' (Thu., 10:30PM ET on MTV). It's the story of Mondo, an overweight teen from New Jersey who goes to the one place a teenage boy will never get tired of ... the beach!

There, he makes friends with Woodie, a local who clearly has never been outside of California. While he teaches Mondo some of the tricks of the trade as a local, he also seems to think that the businesses along the beach front are representative of any town in America.

'Beavis and Butt-Head' Lampoon JWoww of 'Jersey Shore' Making Pizza (VIDEO)

'Beavis & Butt'-head' - 'Werewolves of Highland; Crying'There is nobody more suited to poke fun at some of the programming on MTV than 'Beavis and Butt-Head' (Thu., 10PM ET on MTV). Thank goodness the show returned after far too many years off the air.

While they still seemed to be able to find music videos to skewer -- we laughed, and agreed, with their assessment of MGMT's 'Kids' video -- they also found themselves having to comment on reality fare like 'Jersey Shore.'

Unfortunately for them, they picked an episode without fighting or sex, as they noted, but rather featuring the cast learning how to make pizza.

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?

Adam Brody, 'Good Vibes'Adam Brody is back in the O.C. ... sort of. His new animated coming-of-age surfer comedy, 'Good Vibes' (premieres Thurs., Oct. 27, 10:30PM ET on MTV), finds Brody voicing Woodie, a horny Southern California teenager with a heart of gold -- and a surfboard graffitied to look like a penis.

Created by David Gordon Green -- the guy behind 'Pineapple Express' and HBO's 'Eastbound & Down' -- the show has an all-star cast, including Josh Gad ('Book of Mormon,' anyone?) as Woodie's new best friend, Mondo; Debi Mazar as Mondo's mom, Babs; Alan Tudyk as Lonnie the beach-bum guru; and Green's pal Danny McBride as Ms. Teets, the sex ed teacher. Olivia Thirlby, Jake Busey and Tony Hale also lend their voices.

Brody describes 'Good Vibes' as "super raunchy," which makes it the perfect show to follow returning favorite 'Beavis and Butt-head.' Keep reading for more details on the show, 'O.C.' comparisons and an exclusive sneak peek at an upcoming episode.

Zach Makes Offensive Homophobic Comment on 'The Real World' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 27th 2011 1:30AM
'The Real World'There seems to have been a theme throughout this season of 'The Real World' (Wed., 10PM ET on MTV) about homophobia, or at least insensitivity to homosexuality. It doesn't even necessarily seem intentional on the part of the straight housemates, but their words and actions are sending a negative message to Sam, Frank and the viewers.

This week, when Sam approached Zach to let him know that she and Ashley were waiting on him, a verbal argument over the ping-pong paddles escalated. Zach accused her of wanting him to go get ready so she could play, and she countered by saying she would throw the paddles over the edge of the porch.

MTV Cancels 'The Buried Life'

by Catherine Lawson, posted Oct 26th 2011 9:30AM
'The Buried Life' logoUPDATE: The creators of 'The Buried Life' have announced that they've signed a new deal with MTV Networks. This announcement follows an erroneous statement regarding the cancellation of their self-titled show, which ran for two seasons on the network.

This new deal is being considered a developmental deal, where the group can create new content, reformat their show and it will also offer a platform for them to create a pilot for a new series.

The four members of 'The Buried Life' share this statement: "[We] grew up dreaming of making television and movies and we're excited for what's to come with MTV. We're doing everything we can to learn the ins and outs of the industry and have many people to thank for giving us the opportunity to do this day in day out, including our fans. We want to continue to grow with our audience and inject in the industry the same dose of genuine compassion that guys like Paul Newman, Steve McQueen and others before us did."

ORIGINAL ARTICLE: It's time to bid farewell to Penelope the big purple bus: MTV has cancelled 'The Buried Life.' The make-a-difference reality documentary series scored modest ratings for the network over two seasons, and 'Entertainment Weekly' reports that MTV "hopes to continue working with the team in another format." It's possible 'The Buried Life' could live on as a digital or online series.

MTV Releases New Clip of 'True Life: I'm Occupying Wall Street'

by Crystal Bell, posted Oct 25th 2011 5:30PM
Earlier this week, MTV announced that the newest episode in its 'True Life' series would focus on the young Millennials participating in the Occupy Wall Street movement. Now the network has released the first video promo for 'True Life: I'm Occupying Wall Street.'

The five minute clip follows Bryan, a member of the Occupy Wall Street sanitation team, and fellow Occupiers worrying about eviction from their Zuccotti Park tent city. They're shown cleaning the park in advance of the planned city sweep of the property, which was canceled in light of push-back and self-sanitation efforts. The young organizers also receive some surprising help from their lower Manhattan neighbors.

Mike and Snooki Still Arguing on 'Jersey Shore' Reunion Special (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 21st 2011 5:30AM
'Jersey Shore' ReunionNow that everyone's back from Italy, things have largely settled down for the kids. On the 'Jersey Shore Reunion' (Thu., 10PM ET on MTV), they were mostly able to laugh off their Italian adventures, but there's definitely still some tension between Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino and Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi.

They bickered like school children, each trying to out-dog the other with burns and insults throughout the show. The other castmembers didn't help, shouting oohs and aahs with each successive insult.

They still can't agree with what happened between them sexually, but when trying to talk about her frustration at how Mike had treated her, Nicole certainly chose the wrong words.

Mike Considers Quitting 'Jersey Shore' on the Season Finale (VIDEO)

'Jersey Shore' season finaleAfter realizing that he's basically alienated everyone in the cast with his antics over the past several seasons, Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino went fishing for some sympathy on the season finale of 'Jersey Shore' (Thu., 10PM ET on MTV).

With the gang headed back to the States, he told Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi that he was going to miss her, prompting her to ask what he meant so he could talk about his intentions to leave the show.

"I'm probably not coming to Jersey," he said. "I argue with everybody. It's too much stressful for me." Nobody wants too much stressful in their lives!

Vinny From 'Jersey Shore' Wants to Occupy Wall Street (Seriously)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 20th 2011 10:00AM
Vinny Guadagnino has the distinction of being both the youngest 'Jersey Shore' cast member and quite possibly the wisest. He's seen a lot in his time on the MTV reality show ... and that may be the understatement of the century.

After a season in Italy in which he had sex with Snooki, visited his ancestral homeland in Sicily and, for the most part, managed to steer clear of the Situation's bizarre antics, Vinny's now found himself back in the States trying to expand his reality fame into an acting career, all while dealing with the strange, relentless celebrity that swirls around the show.

AOL TV spoke with Vinny about the enduring appeal (so far, anyway) of the 'Jersey Shore' phenomenon, and he offered his thoughts on why America has yet to grow tired of the over-tanned gang. He also admits that they were treated like "gods" by nearly everyone they encountered upon arriving back in Seaside to shoot Season 5 ... except for New Jersey's governor Chris Christie.

Our discussion turned political from there, as Vinny revealed his support for the Occupy Wall Street protests and his disgust with Republicans who will stop at nothing to bring down President Obama. Check out more after the jump ...

'The Real World' Wants to Recruit Occupy Wall Street Protesters

by Catherine Lawson, posted Oct 20th 2011 9:15AM
'The Real World' could be heading back to its New York City roots for next year's Season 27 (yes, 27), and if you remember watching the premiere season when it first aired then you're basically too old to try out for the next one.

However, if you are (or look like) a 20-something who's feeling disenfranchised and doesn't really want to hang out in Zuccotti Park now that winter is coming, MTV could have just the opportunity for you.

'The Real World' 27 has had an open casting call up and running for some time now, but eager to embrace the zeitgeist and find some politically aware housemates, the casting directors have placed an on New York City's Craigslist specifically targeting the Occupy Wall Street protesters. If you're enticed by "Part of Occupy Wall Street? Real World 27 Wants You!" then roll up the sleeping bag and read on after the jump to find out more.

Priscilla Messes Up Frank's Haircut, So He Goes Off on 'The Real World' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 20th 2011 6:15AM
'The Real World: San Diego'Priscilla is not a hairdresser, and certainly isn't trying to pretend to be. So why, if it ultimately mattered so much to him, would Frank ever allow her near his head with a pair of scissors? That question was not answered on 'The Real World' (Wed., 10PM ET on MTV), but another one was.

Frank can plan his temper explosions. After Priscilla left him with a barely noticeable bald spot on the back of his head, Frank was calm and collected while talking to a friend, but he was planning ahead.
