I was catching up on Beavis and Butthead a couple of days ago. If you haven’t seen the new show (why the hell not?) you should know about a new quirk in the show.
In the original series, the episodes were broken up by small bits where the duo were sitting on the coach watching music videos. Since MTV doesn’t do music videos anymore, they are letting Mike Judge (the creator of Beavis and Butthead) place other MTV programming into the show and making fun of it.
The two shows I’ve seen so far in the Beavis and Butthead shows are Teen Mom and Jersey Shore.
In the two clips I saw of Teen Mom in the last Beavis and Butthead episode, there is a teenager who lives at home with her (what looks like) one-year old girl and is getting a breast implant. And what exactly do these nominees for Parent of the Year do when their promiscuous daughter tells them she wants new boobs? They support her. What. The. Fuck.
If you’re the parent of a single teenage mom, and said single teenage mom is living in your house and takes out a loan for a boob job (“Whoa! You can do that?” Beavis exclaimed), you should either kick her out or kick her ass because she doesn’t have her priorities straight. It’s your job as a parent to prepare your children for the real world and one of the things you should be teaching your child to do is prioritize. When you’re a single teenage mother a boob job shouldn’t even be on your priority list, let alone at the top of it.
Then there’s Jersey Shore. Possibly the biggest group of losers on TV this side of the Kardashians. At least the Kardashians have other businesses to fall back on if the public finally wakes up and realizes that they shouldn’t be watching these tools. What exactly does Jersey Shore contribute to society? It looks like the only thing these rejects do is work out, get drunk, fuck, and start fights. While I admit most of those things are fun to do personally, watching someone else do it is fucking boring.
And they’re all stupid, to boot. In one clip, Snooki (what the fuck kind of name is that anyway?) decides her ass needs to be a little more tan. So she puts some chemical all over her ass and then it starts to itch and burn. What a fucking moron. The next scene shows her sitting in a mini-fridge to cool her ass down.
I can hardly fault MTV for airing these shitty shows. They wouldn’t air them if people didn’t watch them. Shame on all of the idiots that find these shows entertaining. These shoddy programs are on par with Jerry Springer and Maury “You Are NOT the Father” Povich. There is no entertainment value here. These aren’t the shows you’re looking for. Move along.
