MTV had ’90s television gold with “Beavis and Butt-Head,” and now they have reused their Golden Ticket to great effect.

According to IMDB via Zap2It, audiences have responded warmly to “Beavis and Butt-head,” which returned to its home on MTV Thursday, October 27. The show received 3.3 million viewers with two-thirds of the audience being young men. According to the article, this news is fantastic since the young male demographic is thought to be a hard-to-reach demographic to reach.

MTV has also said that the show is now its no. 2 series among men under 35 years of age, with “Jersey Shore” being the first.

“Beavis and Butt-head”‘s great reception also gave new animated show, “Good Vibes,” a good lead in. “Good Vibes” raked in 1.6 million viewers for its premiere, which is actually a bit above average for MTV series premieres.

I’d like to think that the current ’90s nostalgia going on is one reason why “Beavis and Butt-head” are doing so well, because, the same nostalgia is why it was brought back. Perhaps this will prompt MTV to bring back a lot more of their old, awesome stuff, like “Total Request Live” and, to sound cliche, actual music videos. Just play a music video for once, MTV! Live up to your name again!

What did you think of the premiere of the new “Beavis and Butt-head”? Do you hope this prompts MTV to bring back most (or all) of their old programming? Give your opinions below and be sure to check out a sneak peek of next weeks episode.
