Digital News Report – MTV premiered ‘Beavis and Butt-head’ with an entirely new episode on October 27, 2011. This is the first new episode since the cartoon ended in 1997. The premiere drew 3.3 million total viewers last night.
Mike Judge created ‘Beavis and Butthead’ in 1993. In 1997, the ‘Beavis and Butthead’ TV series ended, partly because the creator started to work on the long running FOX TV series ‘King of the Hill.’
Things have not changed much in entertainment, as ‘Beavis and Butthead’ still is attracting a sizable demographic of males viewers between the ages of 12 – 34. The ‘Beavis and Butt-head’ cartoon is all about two high school boys that love heavy metal music, nachos, and discuss strategies on how to get the chicks. The jokes are meant to be unintelligent and crude, which might be why guys like to watch the TV show.
