Beavis and Butt-Head
Ready for more Beavis and Butt-Head? Hope so, because MTV is bringing it back this fall. Series creator Mike Judge (the big brain also behind King of the Hill and the movie Office Space) and MTV President Van Toffler, a self-described B and B fanatic, spoke to reporters Friday at the fall TV previews about why it's coming back and how it'll be different.
Fans of the original series, fear not: Beavis and Butt-Head are the same emotionally stunted man-children you remember from their 1993-1997 run on MTV. In fact, it'll mostly seem like no time has passed at all. "I didn't want to do a big, conscious forcing of modern stuff on them, only when it makes sense," Judge says.

Appearing in front of reporters Friday during OWN's fall TV preview session, O'Donnell said her appeal is very different from Oprah's. "I think the reason for my previous success is that I'm really not aspirational [like Oprah is]," she said. "I'm inspirational... in the sense that people at home so related to me that they felt they could be at the table with me and Madonna."
"I really am more the audience," she continued. "No one at home is going, 'I wish I could be Rosie O'Donnell, an overweight lesbian who yells too much."
That said, The Rosie Show, which will premiere Monday, Oct. 10 at 7/6c, will be quite different from The Oprah Winfrey Show. "My job is mostly to be entertaining and funny, which is what I'm hoping to do," she said.
Here are seven things to know about the show before its debut:
